Python Workshop – Road Trip to Montreal!

by David Vincelli on May 9/2011

The amazing Montreal Python crew held an Introduction to Python For Women workshop last Tuesday. The event was a great success and had a significant turn out. The tutorial was presented flawlessly by Janina Szkut to a crowd that showed high interest in follow-up tutorials, so keep an eye on the Montreal Python website for news.

Python is the language of choice for all new development at FreshBooks, and as such we have a keen interest in growing the community. FreshBooks sponsored this workshop in Montreal and PyCon 2011 in Atlanta. Montreal was recently awarded PyCon 2014 and PyCon 2015 — the largest Python conference in the world. Congratulations to a well deserving community!

As a side-note, no trip to Montreal would be complete without picking up their famous bagels. We brought back a few dozen of the freshest and best bagels to the office which were a great hit.
