The Concurrent Python Developer Retreat
## Featuring Luciano Ramalho
### Author of Fluent Python
#### Crested Butte, Colorado, July 16-19 2017
### The Retreat
We'll be exploring topics and tools around my book project
Although I've added material based on the *Concurrency* chapter from
On Java 8,
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.
The following activities may occur as desired:
- Hikes and other outdoor adventures
- Meals at local restaurants
- Barbeques, other evening activities
- Minimum: $75
- **Suggested (pay what you can):**
- You’re paying: $250
- Your Employer is paying: $500
- Bruce Eckel’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.
- “Townie” bikes can be rented during the event to more easily get around town.
- **Note:** Although you can find lodging — even nice hotels — 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.
