Because our members are spread across Australia, we would like to see if running an OpenTechSchool workshop remotely can work, and are looking for people interested in being participants and coaches.
We thought we'd try 'Data processing with Python' first, and if it works out we can look at some of the other Python workshops they offer. The tutorial is run as a "learn at your own pace" workshop, and coaches are available to help participants overcome problems.
For participants, this workshop assumes a basic level of Python knowledge - about what you'd have if you completed the beginners workshop.
As a coach you don't need to be familiar with the content of this particular workshop, just have a general knowledge of Python and willingness to help the participants solve problems. An introductory guide for coaches is also available.
This will be an experiment, so we welcome suggestions from both participants and coaches on how to make it work.
To register your interest in the workshop, please sign up here.
If you're interested in coaching another OpenTechSchool workshop (or a workshop from another source), please contact us.
