Adding entries

If you want to add information to this page and find that it is immutable, please sign up to the wiki and see the FrontPage#use for details on how to get editing permissions.

The sections tends to be ordered by "time since last person edited it" or by event date in the case of upcoming public courses. As such, entries towards the top will cycle slowly towards the bottom of the section over time. If you're offering an upcoming class or have updated your entry, it's fine to bump it back to the top, but be considerate of others and use some common sense.

Formatting of Entries

Please use the following format when adding entries to the wiki text version of the page:

 * '''Trainer''' offers training on ...

and this format for the GUI version of the page:

  • Trainer offers training on ...

Please avoid excessive emphasis and keep the entries short to give everyone a chance to promote their training classes.

/!\ Entries which are too long will be flagged as such from time to time to gently make the authors aware.

Python Trainers, Promote Thyself

Many trainers are individuals or small companies, and it can be hard to get the attention of the big IT houses. While skill credentials and a portfolio of past training gigs are important, perhaps one of the best promoters is when someone has actually experienced one of your classes. They gain insight into your speaking style, how you relate to the students and your ability to explain complex technical subjects in an approachable way. No class syllabus can convey that. The Python community has a valuable resource that can give you the next best thing.

Screencasting!

||Screencasting is a multimedia creation that focuses on the instructor's desktop, with voiceover guidance. It can be in the format of an online slideshow, a guided sourcecode walkthrough or a follow-along interactive session. They can be as long or short as you wish and they have opportunities for branding, by using custom wallpaper behind your talks desktop and musical lead-in/fade-out.

Screencasts can be hosted on www.showmedo.com or, if done with a large font, video.google.com. They can also be embedded in your website while hosted elsewhere, as shown in our 5-Minutes with Python series. You can learn more about the details with a talk series entitled Casting Your Knowledge, With Style

But perhaps you're really busy on current projects and short on time. Consider doing an audio interview about an upcoming seminar you're offering and releasing it as a podcast. Ron Stephens of Python 411 makes available an excellent collection of podcasts and may be interested in hosting yours.

Unlike face-to-face presentation opportunities, screencasts/podcasts have the additional benefit that they promote your training offerings while you're busy on other gigs. It's almost like cloning yourself and having more time for promotion. It's all about leverage. Use it. ||


Public training courses presented by these trainers are listed on the PythonEvents page.
