Recorded: Sept. 12, 2013Language: English

edx is a major django application serving huge numbers of students for MIT, Harvard, Stanford, Berkely, and more.
- A brief history of Computer-Based Instruction (python has a role); - incomplete survey of current open-source CBI; - edX: how's it different / what's it's rough structure, what (besides django/python) is involved; - edX: hacking the platform (django development); - edX: hacking courses; a deployment-level VM, and how to get started there; - finally: future topics: deployment; what this can't do (maybe) and why; - wrapup: call for interest & edx project night(s);

I'll try to have some USBs for anyone who want to try one of the edX VMs during the talk

What you think Love is - is (probably) wrong.

The correct metaphor / definition for live will make much more sense to the software person. In fact, it will help with team building and design too. Yup.

Grab a beer. I'll tell you a story about how this evolved (turing machine example), how and where evolution selected it, and why it works - and how it works for approaching problems (design) too.

Then I'll lay out the api (functional description).

Don't take it too seriously. You couldn't have known. Now you will. Cheers!
