Having lead young coders tutorials at both PyCon 2013, PyOhio, and others, we are beyond thrilled to welcome her to our little event. Learn more about our young coders event at our website. Registration for young coders will be free, and tickets will be available December 1st.
Katie Cunningham is a Python developer at Cox Media Group. She’s a fervent advocate for Python, Open Source Software, and teaching more people how to program. She’s a frequent speaker at open source conferences, such as PyCon and DjangoCon, speaking on beginners topics such as someone’s first site in the cloud, and making a site that is accessible to everyone.
She also helps organize PyLadies in the DC area, a program designed to increase diversity in the Python community. She has taught classes for the organization, bringing novices from instillation to writing their first app in 48 hours.
Katie is an active blogger at her website (http://therealkatie.net), covering issues such as Python, accessibility, and the trials and tribulations of working from home.
We are still looking for more sponsors for young coders, so if you are interested you can learn more at out website.
