The London Python Code Dojo - an Education in Developer Education

Summary

[EuroPython 2011] Nicholas Tollervey - 24 June 2011 in "Track Ravioli "

Description

The London Python Code Dojo is a community organised monthly meeting for Python programmers in the UK. Variously described as social coding, developer training, "Scrapheap Challenge" for Pythonistas and "I didn't learn coding like this when I was a lad", we've forked the traditional code-dojo format and turned it into something very different.

This talk will explain and explore what happens in the dojo, how it's organised and why various changes were made to the classic dojo format. Reference will also be made to influences from music education and philosophy of education.

Hopefully, by the end of the talk you'll all want to go organise a dojo!
