We are pleased to announce our first keynote speaker for EuroPython 2017: Tracy Osborn.
Tracy Osborn is a designer, developer, and entrepreneur living in Toronto, Canada.
Tracy holds a Bachelors degree in Art & Design. She taught herself how to do websites as a kid, learned how to program and launched WeddingLovely, an online wedding planner to help them track, plan, and design their perfect wedding day.
She’s also the author, designer, and publisher of Hello Web App, a self-published book series on beginner web app development with Python and Django.
She’s been an active member and developer of the Django Software Foundation for three years. In her spare time, she’s an avid outdoorswoman and would love to go on a hike with you.
The Keynote: The Different Roads We Take
We’ve all taken different routes to get to where we are today, and we’re not all currently on the same road going the same place. Tracy Osborn will talk about the idea of the “Python engineer,” her (long and full of bumps and potholes) journey to learning and teaching Python, and the harmful myths about learning programming and the paths available when you do so.
