Morning Simon et al
We should have something that is aimed at Python novices (not programming novices). Maybe this could be a tutorial?
Python in action:
I would love to see projects that apply Python in the African environment to solve real problems.
Maybe the format of these talks can be shorter (no more than 10-15 minute talks?).
Examples: Unicef's work on Rapid in Uganda, Childcount, etc.
