We are pleased to announce our fourth keynote speaker for EuroPython 2016: Naomi Ceder.
About Naomi Ceder
Naomi Ceder has been learning, teaching, using, and talking about Python since 2001. She is the author of the Quick Python Book, 2nd edition and has served the Python community in various ways, including as an organizer for PyCon US and a member of the PSF Board of Directors. Naomi is also the co-founder of Trans*Code, a UK based hack day focusing on trans issues.
She speaks about her own experiences of marginalization with the hope of making the communities she loves more diverse and welcoming for everyone. In her spare time she enjoys knitting and deep philosophical conversations with her dogs.
The Keynote: Come for the Language, Stay for the Community
While Python the language is wonderful, the Python community and the personal, social, and professional benefits that flow from involvement in a community like ours are often more compelling.
“Learn about the goals of the Python Software Foundation and how everyone can take part to help build even better Python communities locally, regionally, and globally. I will also discuss some of our strengths as a community, and also look at some of the challenges we face going forward.”
