   - *Migrating django application data*
   (0:25:00 Minutes)
   By: Eevel Weezel
   Discussion of common problems migrating Django application databases,
   particularly when switching DBMS.
   - *Introducing Python in an after school setting*
   (0:15:00 Minutes)
   By: Kenneth Wade
   I've lead a couple once-a-week, 10-week apprenticeships that allow
   5th-8th grade students to explore the basics of Python through an
   interactive shell at their elementary school. The students primarily use
   lab computers, but they are also exposed to general command-line concepts
   through the use of several customized Linux laptops. In this talk I will
   discuss my goals for the students, the concepts that I introduce, how I
   interact with the students, some of the challenges that arise (for myself
   and the students), and some tips that may be helpful to other volunteers.
   - *Module the Month: Turtle*
   (0:10:00 Minutes)
   By: Chris Foresman
   In keeping with the education theme, I thought I would give a talk on
   the Turtle module in Python, which is more or less a clone of Logo.

Thanks always to all our Platinum sponsors, especially: Braintree,
Imaginary Landscape, and Telnyx.
