Some experience


Python is one of the more accessible programming languages and has been adopted by a broad community of users. For educators of all levels, Python has become a go-to programming language. However, while there are ways to distribute creations in Python, they tend to be notoriously complex, unreliable, or require additional services like web hosting. With the creation of Pyscript, Python projects can be distributed with little to no web hosting or even internet connectivity. This change can potentially bring previously inaccessible topics or tools to a broader community while increasing the popularity of Python. This talk will describe and demonstrate Python and Pyscript's potential opportunities in the education space. We will talk about what makes these tools different than those previously available and how the future development of Pyscript can drive additional education changes in the near future.
