The Concurrent Python Developer Retreat ======================================= ## Featuring <a href="https://us.pycon.org/2016/speaker/profile/32/" target="_blank">Luciano Ramalho</a> ### Author of <a href="http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920032519.do">Fluent Python</a> #### Crested Butte, Colorado, July 16-19 2017 <hr style="height:10px;border-width:0;color:LightSkyBlue;background-color:LightSkyBlue"> ### The Retreat We'll be exploring topics and tools around my book project <a href="http://www.ConcurrentPython.com">Concurrent Python</a>. Although I've added material based on the *Concurrency* chapter from <a href="www.OnJava8.com">On Java 8</a>, this book is still in its research and organization phase; I expect it to be a couple of years before I consider it finished. The electronic version of the book is meant to be publicly available during and after development. The book is written in (Pandoc-flavored) Markdown so you can read it directly in the Github repository. **Prerequisites**: The book is intended for readers who know Python but don't know anything about concurrency. Thus, for the retreat you should know Python, but I don't expect any concurrency knowledge. - Miguel Grinberg's [Asynchronous Python for the Complete Beginner]( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iG6fr81xHKA) is a nice overview of some of the core concepts. <hr style="height:10px;border-width:0;color:LightSkyBlue;background-color:LightSkyBlue"> ### Activities The following activities may occur as desired: - Hikes and other outdoor adventures - Meals at local restaurants - Barbeques, other evening activities <hr style="height:10px;border-width:0;color:LightSkyBlue;background-color:LightSkyBlue"> ### Price - Minimum: $75 - **Suggested (pay what you can):** - You&rsquo;re paying: $250 - Your Employer is paying: $500 <hr style="height:10px;border-width:0;color:LightSkyBlue;background-color:LightSkyBlue"> ### Location - Bruce Eckel&rsquo;s living room, Crested Butte, CO (WiFi, TV Monitor w/ Chromecast, Printer/Scanner and Kitchen). We can comfortably fit 12 people. - For variety, we go to coffee shops and group houses. - If people are staying in the hostel, that has a nice community space as well. - &ldquo;Townie&rdquo; bikes can be rented during the event to more easily get around town. - **Note:** Although you can find lodging &mdash; even nice hotels &mdash; up on the mountain (called *Mount* Crested Butte, 3 miles away with a free bus running to town), it's much nicer to stay in town (just called "Crested Butte," no "Mount"), so try to do that if you can. <hr style="height:10px;border-width:0;color:LightSkyBlue;background-color:LightSkyBlue"> ### Getting to Crested Butte Details <a href="https://wintertechforum.github.io/travel/" target="_blank">here</a> <hr style="height:10px;border-width:0;color:LightSkyBlue;background-color:LightSkyBlue"> ### Lodging Details <a href="https://wintertechforum.github.io/lodging/" target="_blank">here</a> <hr style="height:10px;border-width:0;color:LightSkyBlue;background-color:LightSkyBlue"> ### Registration Add yourself to the <a href="https://groups.google.com/d/forum/concurrentpythondeveloperretreat">mailing list</a> (click on "subscribe to this group"). <hr style="height:10px;border-width:0;color:LightSkyBlue;background-color:LightSkyBlue"> ### Questions?
