We are very pleased to announce that we will be running a two-day workshop on programming skills for librarians during the PyCon sprints in Montreal on April 14 and 15, 2014. The workshop will introduce participants to core skills for managing and manipulating data, including task automation, version control, modular programming, and databases. The event is open to everyone, not just to PyCon attendees; please see this page for more information, register here, mail us if you have any questions, and help spread the word to your friends and colleagues.
This event is just one of several we are running in conjunction with PyCon. You or your colleagues may also be interested in:
