I cannot go this year but I want to say thanks to Daniele and the PyCon
Society/UK Python Association for organising and funding this. I am a big
fan of twinning organisations with those in the developing world. Well done.

Dear Pythonistas in the UK,
The fourth PyCon Nambibia takes place next month: <http://na.pycon.org>.
If you've ever wondered what it might be like to attend an African PyCon -
well, here's a chance.
Previous editions of PyCon Namibia have been attended by quite a number of
visitors from the UK (as well as Europe, USA, Canada). This year, there'll
be at least four people travelling from the UK to take part (including me,
I wouldn't miss it for anything).
It's highly recommended! Here's a rundown of last year's event: <
The PyCon Society/UK Python Association is offering funds to help
travellers this year. The travel grants are open to anyone who is involved
in Python in the UK - if you're reading this, it almost certainly includes
How to apply:
* drop a line to <trustees at uk.python.org>, introducing yourself, before the
15th January 2018
* give us an idea of what you intend to bring to the Namibian Python
community, and what you think you'll be able to bring back
* tell us how much you will need to make it possible for you to attend
You don't need to be a pillar of the community or a Python expert to be
considered. However, it's important to have an idea of why you're going.
The funds are intended to enrich both the Namibian and UK Python
communities through your participation.
Funds are limited of course, but as a guide, something between £500 and
£1000 could be considered reasonable. The airfare to Windhoek from the UK
is generally around £660. Accommodation in Namibia is inexpensive (ask me
for details if you need help planning). See also <https://na.pycon.org/en/
