==Why are we doing this?==
[ Python] is the name of the computer language that you'll learn to program in. It's a great programming language for beginners because it's easy to understand and use, yet it's also widely used for huge projects and serious professional work - it's a language you'll never outgrow.

The workshop is being taught by [ Catherine Devlin] and [ Mel Chua], two female open source geeks with a passion for teaching, a love of Python, and a vision of the powerful impact open source could have with a larger and more diverse community of contributors.
We're grateful to [ IndyPy] for acting as teaching assistants and helping with fundraising and publicity, to [[Boston Python Workshop]] organizers Jessica McKellar, Asheesh Laroia, and Ned Batchelder for their mentorship and support, and the event simply wouldn't be happening without the backing and logistical support of [ Indiana LinuxFest] organizers, especially Matt Williams and Michael Schultheiss.
We're always looking for help in organizing and teaching Python workshops across the Midwest - if you're interested, [ join our mailing list and introduce yourself.] We'd love to have you!
