Hi all,

Next week I will be at PythonBrasil,  a annual meeting that joins all Python developers around Brazil to discuss programming, projects and opportunities to see some old friends, make new ones and even some business there. 

It will be a great event with more than 50 keynotes about Python and related applications and projects. I will host some keynotes and a hands-on tutorial during the event.

On Thurday, 22th - 2:00PM - 6:00PM

           I will present some learning techniques implemented with Python and Scikit-learn such as Linear Regression, Naive Bayes and several others. For  anyone who  knows Python and familiar with basic statistics.

On  Friday, 23th - 10:40AM- 11:10AM

          I will show how Python is used nowadays as main platform in several on-line e-learning system such as the innitatives Coursera, Udacity, CodeAcademy, Khan Academy worldwide. I also  present  my experiences with Python in brazilian enviroment such as Atepassar and PyCursos.  Python is also a good language to start learning and I will present how I and our team teached  it for more than de 400 students around Brazil.
