Teaching

I run programming workshops from time to time, usually for complete beginners.


Past events

2014 - June/July - Making your first contribution to OpenStack

I taught this workshop 3 times over a few weeks:

  • First version in Tog on a Saturday afternoon (see announcement), to 4 people.
  • Then an improved version thanks to the helpful feedback, again in Tog (see announcement), to a group of 8 people.
  • Finally version 1.0 at EuroPython (see session details), to a room of about 20 people.

Material: The final (and best, most usable) version of the material is available on SlideShare.
