PyCon 2011 Tutorial Days
Wednesday, March 9 and Thursday, March 10
Each year PyCon features two days before the main conference devoted to classes. Topics range from basic (Introduction to Python), intermediate (Using the Standard Library, Data Storage) and advanced (Scraping the Web, Automated Unit Test Suites) classes and are often taught by the author(s) of the software being discussed.
These two days offer a chance to learn from expert programmers while sitting next to others having the same interests and concerns are you; it's an exciting time to learn new techniques and exchange ideas. It is not uncommon to have students suggest ideas that are later incorporated into a software package.
There is an extra fee required to attend tutorials (based on the number of classes you would like to attend). In return for your hard-earned money you can expect a professionally presented class complete with class notes to take with you. (You can find out the cost of the tutorial fees by clicking on "Tickets" above.)
Each class is 3-hours of content with a break halfway through:
8:00-9:00 Light Continental Breakfast
|9:00||10:30||First Half of Tutorial|
|10:30||10:50||Break (refreshments served)|
|10:50||12:20||Conclusion of Tutorial|
12:20-1:20 Lunch break
|1:20||2:50||First Half of Tutorial|
|2:50||3:10||Break (refreshments served)|
|3:10||4:40||Conclusion of Tutorial|
Note: Some pages incorrectly had a 2:00 p.m. start time for the afternoon session.
