Hi Folks,

Please pass this onto anyone you may know who'd benefit from this.

Since the mid-00's Kushal Das has been running free online training
courses delivered via IRC for beginner programmers in India. When I
spoke at PyCon India in 2015 and asked the assembled conference how many
of them had started via Kushal's efforts, a significant minority (of
around 1.5k) put up their hands.

It's delivered via IRC, covers all the basics for Python programming in
a FLOSS environment and includes "guest" speakers (including yours truly).

He's running it again this year. Only this time, Kushal would like to
try an experiment and spread the net wider.

If you know of anyone who would benefit from free, high quality remote
training, please point them to:


I'm more than happy to answer any questions.

FWIW, Kushal is a legend. His efforts, reach and outcomes when it comes
to building a Python community dwarf all others. India's flourishing
Python community is largely down to the efforts of Kushal and his allies
(PyCon India is the second largest PyCon in the world, at close to 2000

We all have so much to learn from Kushal.

Best wishes,
