Greetings from Pycon 2013 in Santa Clara.
We enjoyed a day long Education Summit on Pi Day today (3/14) an pun
(py vs pi) that did not go unnoticed.
The program featured a keynote by Walter Bender, founder of Sugarlabs,
followed by an unconference of three consecutive sessions and seven
lightning talks, culled from a longer list of proposals by public
Topics were wide-ranging, with quite a bit of focus on IPython,
IPython Notebooks and IPython Blocks.
The Scratch-like graphical Turtle Art program that runs on the XO (or
in an XO VM) was another focus of attention.
Guido joined us and participated actively in the Q&A during one of the panels.
Thanks to all the organizers and sponsors, Naomi in particular, for
making this happen.
