Python
@ FOSDEM 2017

Event

Python is a widely used general-purpose, high-level programming language. Its design philosophy emphasizes code readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code than would be possible in other languages. The language provides constructs intended to make clear programs possible on both a small and large scale.

This developer room is a good occasion to discover the Python ecosystem and meet the community around this language.

Create your website with Flask

Event

During one evening, we will see how to create a website from scratch with Flask. Flask is a micro-framework for Python, with no ORM, or other stuffs, but I will show you how to create a database and a simple web interface for your business.

Please, come with your laptop and Linux or OSX. You can come with Windows, but we don't have a good experience with Python on Windows.

Water, Beers and chips will be available.

Education

The next generation of Pythonistas

Over the recent years, Python has evolved from being a background player to a well known & used language within the educational landscape. Today, multiple universities are using Python as a building block for IT & scientific related courses. For example, Python is the main programming language for IT student at the University of Ghent. At the VUB, Python is being used as the main language for the course ‘Introduction to Computer Science”, lectured to students in their Science department. KU Leuven on the other hand is using Python throughout multiple courses (Python as a second language, Data analysis with Python, Computer vision with R & Python, etc.)

Needless to say, today is a great time to start an education when aiming to learn more about the language. Follow the links below to be directed to each institution’s offerings.
