Python Namibia 2015

Hi ya'll,

It has been a while since my last update, but it was all for a good reason. Some wise man once said "All good things come to those who wait".

Diving into this short post; this year I have the pleasure of attending the #PythonNamibia2015 conference at the University of Namibia, this is a conference that is organized by Cardiff University and the University of Namibia.

Obviously, the organization of the conference has many industrial sponsors and the Python community at large (This is not the aim of this post).

Below, are a few quotes from the inauguration event on day 1 of the conference:

"International software developers are well versed in teschnologies but there is always a margin of misinterpretation of local realities" #PythonNamibia2015 - Dr. Hangula

"Sufficient training of Software Developers is important for our economic development" #PythonNamibia2015 - Dr. Hangula

"This conference is important as it furthers the cause of fighting the need of dependence" #PythonNamibia2015 - Dr. Hangula

ParticipatoryDesign can better the code qualitiy of an application within #python

How do we factor UX into python programming within the context of #Namibia?

@GitHub is a really cool tool for collaboration within the #PythonCommunity

 If you read from the beginning of this post you will realize that I write "attending", this is because the conference is still running.

This post is not very well organized because it is written on the fly.
