The annual Python programming conference for professionals, entrepreneurs, scientists, academics and students.

Education days at PyCon Namibia 2024

We're very excited to include two special education days in PyCon Namibia this year. We're building on the relationships we have developed with educational institutions to bring our PyCon speakers and coaches directly to university students and school pupils.

We will have a day of talks and workshops for university students at NUST, and demonstrations and hands-on learning sessions for secondary school pupils at Jakob Marengo Tutorial College in Katatura.
