Learn (or Teach!) Python at ALA Annual

This year at the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago, the ALCTS/LITA Library Code Year Interest Group will be offering a full-day preconference on Python. Attendees will learn the basics of the Python programming language and will have an opportunity to complete a project using the language with the support of a team of teachers who have experience with it. Our curriculum will be based on the curriculum developed by the Boston Python Workshop, a program that several of the teaching staff have either participated in or taught at in the past. It is going to be a fun time and if you will be in Chicago in time for a preconference, I would highly recommend checking it out! You can read more about the event on LITA’s blog or you can register online. And, if you are interested in teaching at the workshop or developing a project to be used at the workshop, let us know!

If you aren’t free for a preconference but will be at ALA Annual, the Library Code Year IG will also hold a meeting during the conference; check the conference scheduler when it is released for a time and location. And, if you aren’t able to make it to Chicago at all this summer, check out the Cracking The Code: Librarians Acquiring Essential Coding Skills article in the latest issue of Library Journal for tips on learning to program.
