The Importance of Visuals in Teaching Python


This talk was presented at PyBay2020 Online Edition. It’s the 5th annual Bay Area Regional Python conference. See for more details about PyBay and click SHOW MORE for information about this talk.

DESCRIPTION Python can be taught line by line but not everyone is comfortable with purely text and logic based explanation of coding. The current status quo is to teach showing lines of code with inputs and outputs though a lot of visual learners aren’t going to easily grasp that. What if there was a way to communicate the code concepts with images? This talk will show how using geometry and modeling can acclimate novices to coding concepts using visual-spatial examples reinforced by coding concepts applicable anywhere.

SPEAKER BIO Tadeh is a developer and designer in Architecture (buildings not computers). He has been a course author, trainer and open source contributor. Over the years he has taught other designers the value of coding and automation and wants to continue to spread that message to as many people as possible with training seminars and talks. He has been a speaker at national conferences about design, tech and Architecture and loves to talk about new possibilities with innovation and technology.
