I did so.

Now I'm back, and I have to say it was phantastic.
People in Korea are very nice, and the Python User Group
consists of very enthusiastic Pythoneers.

There were over 700 participants for the seminar, and
they didn't have enough chairs for everybody.

Changjune did a very well-done presentation for
beginners. I was merged into it for special details,
future plans, and the Q&A part. It was a lesson for
me, to see how to present difficult stuff.

Korea is a very prolific ground for Python. Only few outside
of Korea know about this. I suggested to open up the group
for non-local actions, and they are planning to add an
international HTML tree to their website.

Professor Lee just got the first print of "Learning Python"
which he translated into Korean. We promised each other to
exchange our translation. And so on, lots of new friendships.

I will come back in autumn for the next seminar.
Today I started a Hangul course, after Chanjune tought be
the principles of the phonetic syllables. Nice language!
