morning everyone and thanks for being here and before you can start we have some friends use to say and you be here uh to the organizers
for inviting me to speak and to all the volunteers who helped promised of of Python and friendship that is your life and
it only wanted to be out here in front of you means a great new to us and just being here is going to be an important contribution to movement like in Africa that would both be involved and and we feel like responsible speaking for a lot of people who are not afraid to so that that here again and we introduce ourselves and the higher 1 language action will as that systems engineer and the global challenging in practice and this is closest
and up the things and I helped to support the gender those acts and gender movement in Nigeria and helped mentor which of the event and also help organize training is in danger and this picture actually is 1 area is that I'm going to love because it was in 2015 and my 1st year by conference and my about an interaction the Python community and even Python as a tool so if you think of any different now than it was 10 years ago proceedings just this and I'm than know what should I work for you in the swiss chard be the lights hosting Stan development so this is what Python Django and developers and a great
number of gentle hypernyms community in its conferences and core
member gender development team and you yesterday and there was some remarks about the levels python power from them uh and like point out that this this is this is what I want and by the way and if you can see this is I am in fact Python software so and
let's not have any arguments about and that why should I have been talking about a lot more interested in is what Python
need for each other and what emerges
from the encounter between them and and as always encounter the most whom kind
of encounter is an encounter between uh people and you can count between people that Python in Africa represents and to matter because they are what change people when they happen and in our world can trace these encounters through the events that we state so would start with them in our microns of national scale or international events where you get to meet uh new people so we got Python Python South Africa which is well established that is
quite different from most other African countries and and then after icon South Africa since 2004 the we've had icons in the
media and instance 2016 in Zimbabwe and then coming later this year the 1st icon and Nigeria and people just like the ideas that same time with them you have to hang around them and try and work with them in order to understand them and that's why events with people need
are so valuable and we can manage measure actually the agenda those events which is like out as you see we've had 62 workshops cities general those and happened the 1st was in bad in between 15 and since then we've had 16 so
watch out and of the has then being in year which is that the 1 location and anyone would work until a this is that we're generally events having
this is that even have an established by community in Africa and this is in Africa and for example in Africa and it's the wall of an idea of what the properties of sometime 2002 it he says 70 % of a of
old by women in Africa as a set this and all intrapreneurship in in Africa although in a sense of you may not if you translate that what that could mean for programming it goes along with the possibility that gambled on on the image highly I can have that that is regarded as with African women so but what happened by the way I should be modified it so that fully 50
per cent of the strand of those events have taken place in Nigeria and the reason
is right here so his model say that and so how do we get started not kind of like in South Africa which was already established but since then and in 2014 by was working at college inversely School of Medicine where I was when 2 and then I have the notion of somehow helping to start a new might somewhere in Africa the kind of Africa since 2000 arrest and also trying to find an African Python community large enough to host cycle and I to see of my colleagues who have done a lot of work in africa for some advice and this was an professor to hold the head of the anesthetic department and just like in the 1st of the actions actually causal nature of the user so she did have some advice but not all interesting it turned out that she was suffering a major long-term engagement project called Phoenix project between college University and the University of Namibia and and that's the case you don't know where it is it's a large place it's not them the land mass of Germany and Italy put together but there are only 2 million people just over 2 million people living there so in the class I have many questions for me like what is Python what is open source software lots of high on Y and we had some blinking conversations but cut long story short the idea of the Namibian Python software conference was adopted as an official part of the Phoenix Project and suddenly it wasn't just emotion anymore we now had significant backing from 2 institutions we had financial and logistical support we have a lot of expertise that we have a venue and we even had a guaranteed uh audience and then we had dates and we had sponsors to whom we are timely and grateful and that's speakers in people who were committing themselves to travel from different continents to Namibia in February 2015 and this was to run a new Pike on in a place that I'd never been before with people I've never met except by e-mail and sky and for audience whom we discovered the even no hyphen yeah because they even the computer science student study a Java and C C and other things and basically know of Python at all so my main hope was this of better work because in my darkest moments here at the clock in the morning I was convinced that the whole thing was preposterous lunacy and that this couldn't possibly work may imagine people speaking about the future you know to member that idea to try to organize Picon in Namibia jails so it's the a year another later you I was praying for ash cloud all international bans on Python events and anything that would mean that you have to go ahead with what I said I would do but despite all of this and we found
ourselves and on our way to Namibia and then walking into the venue for the 1st time we found all these
people waiting for us at some excitement and suddenly we're in the middle of the real life Python Conference doing all the things you expect from a height of doing all these things band together and people meeting each other for the 1st time in discovering things for the 1st time and that happened was a great success but it wasn't actually that events that really matter but what happened after because at that conference the namely that the the Namibians form their own Python society kind and uh Python programming society Namibia and they got to work straight away so the undergraduate students who'd been at the conference and had literally just learned Python next month they managed to organize themselves with local high schools and they were doing programming demonstrations and lessons for high school and students so and this Jessica she's the chair of the finance and this is from the 2nd year
of like immediate knows the some of her high school
students who came and went to the conference so and the Namibians took the idea and and really rabbit and earlier this year we had like and Namibia 2017 the that additional conference and just 2 years after that 1st event and Picon is now taught at the university as a result of Michael there it's told in high school thanks to you I'm just the Namibian businesses and developers have discovered Python while softly conference coming to Namibia with that and that many of those we don't find out what that's about so this active growing community that's already organizing apply for now I can Namibia for next year and 1 lesson from this is that you don't need a community to have pi con because you can create your community verify that from my own and another thing that the Namibian the 2nd medium conference last year did was to lead to a picon in some Zimbabwe because to the people who came in 2016 where animal reads a and Humphrey without they traveled to well over that 30 hours each way in a minibus and absentee horrendous Janine after hearing about the travels like never once the threat of complain about my own long-distance journeys and later that year they started they had been launched and held the 1st and that's about women icon on and if you think the organizing of icon is an achievement organizing 1 more
successfully in a country like Zimbabwe which has many internal problems it is facing international sanctions is really a triumph of perseverance and strength ingenuity and if they can do that right can and that anything so that this conference
was a success and the next 1 is taking place next month and really importantly it's sponsored by some companies that you we already know and love of the sponsors the sponsors of this event so I'm really grateful to these companies out there somebody from uh jet planes all maximal here in the audience to see this because this really matters to me so grateful for your support to see not just
part of the community the growing up in Africa but the rest of the global community is stepping forward to be part of it is literally a
dream coming true and Zimbabwe unlike the Namibia already had an established in Python community it's much of country very briefly there's uh Parliament governed the 1st African board member of the Python Software Foundation and this the fact that the
various and and Ronald loser and and some of his uh fellow leaders
of Single privates normalization dedicated to getting goes into coding and finally last year in the media that is another important person who also went back home plans and she would like and during his years to tell them about an hour that's the southern side of Africa now let's go to the left part Africa to stop it will be in a having our 1st ever conference by canadian September 15 and 16 and just think of as a personal invitation to college an idea about the 1st African of conference
and which I think it's a I wanna take a moment to appreciate 15 and what can we begin so dedicated and have modern next itself such conferences just need all hands on deck as I would have something here that that is going
and thankfully also like to say thank you to our sponsors so far that are sponsoring a speech that appears in the top and allowed lack of local like the local of the company in India now moving on to Python k Nadia pectinate years I up organically
grew from a jungle goes events and now we have on over 700 slot members because we have like those of a slap Python community and we have over 1000 titles
subscribers have good explanation for that why that is and how just a 2nd and of 500 of Python today that so 1 of the things that we have in Nigeria because is that knowledge in the late so after people and learned a lot and continue the idea here is an opportunity always telling and I had consistent on Python tutoring and you need not just those actually constant and we even get more days coming down because of it by event and add a point you know electing a work guys if you want a common table and go with comital clique common on the representative of quality at all just act so here you think it as traveled there and just to talk about numbers and how how how much of an impact this has been done we've had about 919 girls attendance goes events in 28 cities when in that's a 1 watch to more cunning and what's also important to note is that goes from Nigeria went on to Ghana and organized 1 workshop in our and that enabled the dead in the main hall in an apartment just from 2 months back up going on so that yet 1 of options and this like muscle offered you off and which is very very of which is how the the movement and by the the spreading to other parts of the the West Africa especially where there is no pipe and community life the prison J. logos is sometimes not regarded very fairly so and some people think that China girls is all about
and cupcakes and heart-shaped balloons in the kind of good departing so it it means a lot to us and in all parts of the
world it's not news that major and 2 years ago had made all and where a set of books for Harris did
not below 200 dollars in the middle of the nite on from their dormitory and have held most of them for over 2 years now and there was this huge country in units of of bring back out of print them now we want them alive what so what I wanted to mention is how general dollars as of gonna you to help this girl is that as the into is place from the north and trends of so them into the community based in regards and earned would as I read with very passionate about you know that education is not really know what actually need 1 specifically for it in the this so this is this was quite different because even detonator
singing she had to organize workshop shelf for the coaching because if you had to be that of they have to be that conversation again to see you know it goes and I like the regular you know maybe your already which is a very special and the reason we need to up to a time to extend all how long the asbestos hiding as at as intently had and translator actually tries to attract top to him in houses which is good but most of the land being used for the most part so the
genitals literally going into places where other people wouldn't even have the 1st idea how to the beginning the I think that's a it's really important to recognize that
uh the significance of this and who's the the people in in this button so how the light is actually a
treasure programs that by the nature of music and the girl she was 1 of your from 1 of the rare on top of those have been no actually we're polarimetric connected characters in this sense so moving on to how much more will be done by the major community
we've actually partners in part and also other of organizations and distant one-sidedly adolescent just
loans the legalized and went public in public school and and the 60 girls over a
period of 12 weeks and such that we taught them how to would know this is this is michael usual because we know that those have ever have to see if you haven't seen the computer before and approval in about a class but as an abstract concept or as
something computer they put in the shell and that management is now the most about skeptical touches and sold with the help of like of the foundation were able to and these girls but rather the guys at the end of the program that justifies the screens keyboard mouse because most of them are coming from poems that the probe could not afford computers and what is important here like to is that and that picture is to soon and Tercel is teaching them was that the
beginning with the get educating their hearts I have them what the content before you even begin to say or what good is the common that we had to pull from the very easy to teach them in this which we
have support also from of the utility of initiating and the founders of taking 1 of the gals ecology and had to see so we've this not just project and we got rid of intermediate use got on the nature and to have this disease said I had a computer because it gets the use of it in school you would be in I couldn't you put it on and off I was scared based on ISO computes always thinking of ways particle spoiled mean effect attitude just break break so if you felt that this have have being now all my fear that 1 I can now hold and also very important now the class when he comes on the questions of of computer this is actually is resounding because even giving the confidence in this regard this its those and saying that they can do it and it's not so much of it being you know you know what has gone on to actually change of perspective from it's a positive very scared off to a concept that you know what I think I wanted to play and I wanted the developer so it is assumed that is power and so we talked a little bit about what's happening happening and so that we want to talk a little bit have a bit of a discussion about uh in some questions will help clarify the implications of all this and uh I think was challenging on 2 words of there are in Africa so we talk about it a lot actually and what is 1 of the biggest problems about them Africa Africa is not in the country it was huge continent and it not just use the we have very different will go on and talk with the few
if is made up of very different people
and very different communities and you find that in the country for example like the idea that we have in our cells are very different and probably have more in common with any time that we have and then you know in the media so we're very different so there is no something of Africa on on on the continent of Africa is huge and is different experiences the different colleges for different places so just to give you an idea it you know it's and select 1 of the
of the world's land mass so you could crime most of the other continents on top of Africa have to 1 . 2 billion people uh some 50 + countries and depending on how you count them
between and up to 3 thousand different languages so this is vast ethnic and cultural diversity that know if if you and Italian and you're going to Belgium or something the house of different here you see nothing the and in Africa is not just different has yeah with very different from Africa 100 different
from the same year as the the difference is great as much as between in the images and in the media as it was maybe in year bridges it's actually
very hard to traveling in Africa and the Nigerian any need to get a visa to go to South Africa to cater anywhere else which is which is a lot that I see the Ukrainian have you once you it from repeating goal and you have freedom of movement the wouldn't have that and actually Python then Mediolanum utility the 1st African country outside of the interior and ever so if we don't even know ourselves the was by but the if the ease of movement is not as is that it's easiest thing that always just Africa but no we have have to get a visa like everyone else that's comma from anywhere if some then easy from if you're from Europe to come to a country like the African varieties like an agent would controller on in India where most Europeans don't need visas yes but you have to jump through hoops exactly at the time it is a question that we've encountered and also spoke about and you know what does Africa really need this African need access to software and high technology orders and things like universal basic education vaccinations clean drinking water and basic health care in other words on high hormones or picons kind of frivolous luxury in the African context African technology to so we use technology and this is the I see a role in the process of text such like like and we use it to solve all problems now we have people developing apps that can help to do with money demand that can help people are says that's not healthcare Africa it's not allowed me to have pipeline it's it it's a necessity that we need and that's our reality we need technology to the needs of the we have businesses we have close and no it's not it's an Africa is going to need software it's not an alternative reality within the new software and since is going to need software it faces the same choice that everybody face is between being a producer or a consumer of the things that you need and the choices for African economies are pretty simple by that they can buy the software it must however all it can find a way to build it maintain its adapted and itself and if it can't do that it will have to buy it and that will mean valuable money leaving African and economies and and this is where open source software comes in because open source of revenue don't think that open source offers something magical about it's an opportunity it represents the possibility to make vast and uh possible to make it an economic viability and pi columns as we saw from the Namibian case are really an important as way of helping open source software gets uh attraction and users in Africa it is not a thing about about about about technology so if you think that technology is mapped books and like iPhones and you know uh wearable technology and things like that happen maybe Africa doesn't need those things but if you start thinking of technologyis stuff that you buy and
said I think of it as feels then the question looks different and saying does Africa need technology becomes a question
does Africa needs skills African the practical knowledge yeah end then it has a very different complexion is much harder to think that skills our Taylor criteria are a luxury yes and the like mind African doesn't deserve to have an knowledge and and what did if you know these gentlemen and they invented like book this Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs and now and paradoxically and I should tell you more about this moment and free things can be unaffordable because they're free in the African context the hobbies and the strongly characterizes European software open source software movement really is a luxury
because we used in the west to building projects skills contacts and even industries as hobbyists of amateurs spare time enthusiasts but all that
is only possible when that already exist a well-established industry in networks when there's an established place in the industry when there's plenty of spare money and spare time and easy access to resources and information so hobbyism is parasitic on established business success and you will move about the subject 132 should yes we don't have time for that think is we need to make sure that whatever we're doing it can actually generate revenue because money is not a dirty word if you don't have lots of if you have to if you live in a place in the country where there's no 24 hours to it does not file access to electricity and you have to buy on by bicycle to run and you have to ration up how much I have my laptop busses went right to and the generator I get tired and how much longer coming work we have to do with noise pollution air pollution noise everything and we don't have to have all of these we need to make sure that whatever we're doing is profitable ways productive resonances I think it's safe to where we talking about that you can't rely on 24 hour electricity talking about the remote backwards solve you know that this is an idea which is a different reality and when the media of cities most arising in big cities so even in big cities you can't rely on them so you can't rely on on that and we don't have time for that so so there is that aspect of it we need to make the whatever we're doing can generate money so we need to make sure the work that we can after for did time time is allowed to for most people because you have to make sure the power down some people don't even have computers also the need to borrow say there is so what you're watching is still so much talking these stars at the links invented be the necessity is elected 3 where you don't even have internet for the most part so it's it's work it's not for 1 and that's where typos floors of a serious business yeah the 2 and a half people here have also been community event organizers anyone else organizer pike on here or an event we need something in a few well then you'll know that you you'll have face all kinds of challenges and spammers and the work and you don't have to go to Africa to find them so this is from my gender con Europe from 2004 when they're a boy bands and the structure that conference by suddenly selling every hotel bed in the city after our conference already started selling tickets
or in them that the Pico UK a couple of years ago and so anything can can and come up unexpectedly but still
and this is it this way and the python you in Europe is year is funny this Monte Python and Python software is characterized by the lighthearted tone that provide Rossum very wisely established right at the beginning and we enjoy it all kinds of ways so it's funding snakes and so on and would have to say about makes and states in Africa is not funny I'm really serious
and few think for example in a 0 for a period of
6 months we're trying to register as a not-for-profit with the government and to close a lot of going back and forth and we had to change our names so many times because the government's LD efficiently I've you called we don't approve such as this is actually have argued in this fight page document explaining all pose somewhat like under the now type and this after we eventually convinced them after 6 months of going back and forth and you know changing on names and finally say OK pi and it's all of these together as the name as a went to save Piketon software communities to very explicit and the 1 thing that you know because because lost Python represents the negative it's the transcripts we see there's attracted as harmful would die from that and you know so it's it's not funny for as an example and thing but it was when a girl uh appearance actually pulled out a out from the jungle those events because she saw me in my Europe right shit and he'd snake was the select is known we implement the the part of that there's no way and you know it should and can actually having to go to the woman and explain and tell about and explains how what Titley's as a soft it would look like this me or is it the 1 week the idea that many people used to same can happen in a simple way in in the western part of Nigeria where on the girl over that a company actually at the last minute pulled out from was the jungle goes even before this said channel no way that I down want change if anyone ever downwards when it's in
these however he just leave alone support the end date for the 1 that's really a relatively for another thing you introduce some posture that make any sense but this is our reality and we just have to be careful with our house makes because they
might not be as attractive as they are known to us as they are to of people do you think it data had an african friendly would still have called by the ship it it that's a good point a firm you know if if real had been developing a Python in the beginning with an African friend perhaps the main Python would have made them stop and think for a minute so this is an early you can't have too many useful perspectives when y'all creating something but this is really about snakes it's about meaning because in the global community like ours symbols and images and names are going to have unexpected meetings and we can't rely on a narrow cultural perspective to find things will work well and can you explain to the audience what African 1 is the most important for and what is coming the African . com right so outside the
loans to show but advice there on here if they're you know the names of events we expect African and the actual attempt 7 PM in the in like to send out tell there is actually for did the reality of the
season and only then I write a value on so nite and you don't want that yeah we organize movements in Namibia we you Namibians extremely relaxed that much too cold to to hurry to everything does happen that happens in the median time meanwhile the European co-organizers a series more because nothing seems to be happening but in fact all this happens at the last moment the other important thing that important thing is that the personal touch I think this is a consistent thing in Africa is in the it experience this way yes how well in you can mean bombard people with e-mail messages for months and nothing will happen when you walk into the office and talk to them for 45 minutes in the 1st 30 minutes the conversation will be about their children and in the final 15 minutes absolutely everything will be organized in a way that you could never do in Europe so there are different ways of doing things it's less stressful if you know this could happen with their heads up guys up this another thing that expectations with in other ways too so this is a long history of African technological brilliance mastery that when discovered by the West is not even recognized because of disbelief that it could have come from Africa so what if the herd of that binning bronzes they came from actually from
Nigerian of Company from the engine many kingdom by from that state you come from and instead of taking and so the uh
that many promises where these thousands of works created 14 19 centuries not largely bronzes most them on a branch to other materials most now in Western museums and collections because they were all looted by the British in 1897 but when they arrived in Europe experts or experts were astounded and they couldn't believe that this stuff had been made by people so quotes primitive and savage not just because of the art but because of the understanding of meta-knowledge that went into the things like this so they kept coming up with different theories about how uh the Africans mentioning the things they must have moved to the portuguese traders for example and they just couldn't believe that this was an African technology so that's just 1 example that I think is a real danger that is some new technological advances comes out of Africa it's simply might not be recognized because it won't fit Western on European expectations and but it's not just Europeans to who might have to reassess their ideas of African technology is it now we've we will Africans by African technology
so we sometimes have the mind-set that which I would say resulted from back to me the meaning inclinations where with you that the EU's foreign but these are broader better than what we do all what did you come in and begin Africa so we've actually started a lots of movements
around by Nigeria out to good major by narrative and thereby intermediates in the media by Africa orthographic and this was also translated into technology where we're trying to encourage other companies with the name Tiertza's by our and locally made software as opposed to be in in you know this after that come from the middle of the firing anywhere else in Asia and Europe Latin America and this is just an example of how the jurors love Italian shoes right this
this this this class that goes we always use the Italian you wanna see you have a meeting about times right algorithm is is he sees in addition i city in
year and so we are actually getting started the movement of of vibrating about because of as good as much quality as you would get anywhere else in the world we've been talking about Python in Africa but without Africans in and that Python so if this could be a new generation of African Python programs or Python community members what new ideas for applications or insights are we going to see coming out from then what what could we imagine we just don't know right we don't know yet people the definite apparently to when contracts because we already has some easy understand the importance of diversity in the datasets images in gender diversity in a different domain knowledge so now imagine bringing in the community of African by police there is integrated with the rest of the world just imagine what that means book I have I don't know you know and so and but do be like and 19th century okrugs expenses music when it's staring you in the face and so what's next forum uh life in in Africa well I honestly think is special and there's a good reason why we found out that 1st conference was Python conference and not just an open source software conference it was because of the community of friends of companies that we knew we could rely on how to make it so happened we've seen how the community internationally as helped start not just a picon in uh a in Namibia but also a Python community for uh Namibia So Python's way and it's not actually that Python you know it's not for us to say what software Africans should be learning they're going to need Africa was going to need to make its own choices spot Python gives us a great way In introducing these technologies and skills into Africa Python because of because of its community probably also because of the strength of the language itself can be the way so the future looks pretty good but the last half of our tool just a couple minutes left it is we want to address you as our audience have been so kind to listen to us now and we want to frame the question in your mind does python in Africa I need your help at all doesn't need your participation and engagement in the Africa Africa there's no need to be saved or taught right we can do a lot of these ourselves but we want to be a part of your plumbing is you want to be a part of our community not just about charity wanting to call I want you to th maybe and we also wanted to learn from us because there's so much to know the dating game just by talking to someone publicly defended a completely different experience than you would use to what people around so yes we want to participation wants you to join us we want to join us constant African like and it's really an
imitation and then they know where to come over the next 12 months we wanted to make new friends and in Africa and keep them there because when you have an experience like that it's something that will stay with you for your entire life and will be something really meaningful and we don't want to be a tourist be Python he stopped in Africa and it if if you come and have the experience of finding out from an African schoolboy what his plans are for the future in computing for his country that's an expense you'll never have as a torus so more often use a chance to literally to change the world and to take back the future and because the future is bright but there is and you'll be amazed with you make to it and then there's the future and there's the future and you find that you too are
transformed by the in if you think about this and
thank you so thank
you very much that is really where you know as like all of you but modernizer you'd questionable and figure out the sort of like with the what the 1st flight of how actually use of all the other half of the functional like last . lists and and I was like have microarray rhetorical question can we do workshop was for Europe was held I mentioned further from my my when the movement and we can give an example of that in the uh the 2nd like on the media to
look at some of the 1st and the 2nd by the media we would call early in the morning say because of the thought that they because they wish to protest at university and the menu was shut down known fortunate we had a day in hand because we planned to social daily in the conference so we went straight hotel and we said we got a problem we got 120
people coming for a Python Conference need audio-visual supplies of services in 3 different of 2 different holes and we need catering for 120 people and we needed tomorrow and they said yeah we can do that and I if you try that anywhere in Europe died in the war possible so things do happen and can happen in different and in different ways as we have to take some questions from the audience of such key this transfer the hassles as many people can have questions uh as possible so that's what the major not so that's bound to the left of that cop thank people from all over the
world but the real life that they want to know what might be the case that all it all the time that well and that
the review of the of the of the whole help out in the in the form on the on the left and the right part of the work on the left has sold to sh but it says it has a sculptor and it would include a community you still need to be able to have that person now talk about 1 and 1 uncontacted someone and honestly e-mail is a great but there is nothing to do with personal communication attraction there at all you can just get lucky and find that your colleague is planning this multi-year project uses 2 things to happen just by chance you have to talk as many people as possible and you will eventually toward the right person I think have if Hey I think if you look at it and that he would like him that he yet to the effect that if resources were in our solar system is an expression and uh but the anymore cause was come down here on the use of their
respective reward from you just come about 4 questions because I so the sulfuric to recall OK so I was I actually met met person from South Africa last of a plus use your Python and he invited me to Python in the media but I kind of chickened out because like Johannesburg is in the safest place in the world to be exact but like our if I cooked up by the Namibia for example like came w that is going to be OK and I did don't have to worry about any of OK so this is the Africa is
unknown to many people um you make Yvonne our friend from South Africa that yes so with these coming to Nigeria because I have as a he's he's a wonderful person need is 80 democracy with a functioning free press a robust press uh has elections and governments and get voted out by the people and people who lose their jobs in the correct way it's a really really safe place to be is much safer than that most of South Africa in terms of personal safety um and this even places are less stable than Namibia Vin not why yield places facility of a walking and road and so it has been a grab for the most part and we're aware of this problem and most common like Compaq endanger we're actually putting some extra and security measures to make sure I mean it's a label as we don't usually have as much of all currents is like not and plotted is warranted this terrorism so it's not it's so the layout of the head out of print queues being to every uh economy became this year with his seven-year-old was 6 also so you know it's that we should mention that and most African societies are quite conservative socially conservative bounding here so unfortunately and for gay or transgender Africa might not always be the southernmost welcoming text and it's not for European start lecturing Africans on what standards they should have but I hope that being this encounter that we've been talking about my out change some of those attitudes just because people are meeting each other and being friends and so on there are things to be aware of and in many ways in Africa uh and sexual activity is not legal Saul 1 more question from your side might want to skip and 1 of my questions also op icons in Africa about have like a similar code of
conduct as we would Europe or is it maybe initiative set something like how like but so yes we do have a code of conduct and we have just take a
year and having a dedicated people and specific for their inner don't dating just put a kind of this is very important for with everyone is if you welcome yes we do have in our preferences and take taken extremely seriously as well and and when not sh we're not sure I'll put in the code of conduct example behavior or language is not tolerated here so we can still share the values of our community yeah where are we going to have to do it in the appropriate way the hi thank you it's quite inspiring are you shown that it's growing really fast my
question to you is what does it mean in numbers when can we say that that's a 1 per cent of you graduated no it the sharing the that 1 per cent
of the new university graduates of had some experience with spike OK so for example in Nigeria Python is not being taught all is standing universities what we have now lecturers agitated by the major community single-handedly championing teaching Python in universities so for example the cylindrical fairer basic scope via this kind of anti-Semitic thing and you know some more uh morning universities CC first-person general but we hoping that means that this we can you know make it a standard because as if I think is 1 of the very friendly be enough for any languages to learn yeah we people accept multiple times in set up multiple times to us in the media from exam of thank you begin with friends their works in cooperation uh in the African countries that that only there uh after they about
the institution for teaching uh Matisse in in in
engineering and stop that 1 of the problem there have is that they can
from many European American countries to teach and when the students have learned that just leave as possible of the uh that country so all uh working time when they go they be after each 2 or 3 years they need always different people because uh well that's here I think 1 of the things that we've discovered I I should mention she
talked about kind of seriousness in which this is all taken like Jagger goals events in in uh in major tackling really serious things actually some the pictures from schoolchildren giving lightning talks in Namibia towards the end I'm and every time 1 of these young people stands out in front of a microphone they're talking about how can we what they want to know is what have we bring what we've just learned to other people maybe in rural areas of their country so that they are thinking about their own country and about people in this society who actually don't have the same opportunities as them and we've seen them for example the um university students going into the schools straight away to share this stuff with the kids so I think the com the the actual Python community keeps people to get a people got skills they'll find their skills that work in their communities keeping people in the country generating work in the country and revenue and money and so on in the country and that's just the year and in a personal example is advanced by Python when I had the opportunity of the privilege to be here in 2015 your Python and and then I went back home and organized just 1 event and that had the Curie Boulevard mean effect there now we have elected to 1 so it's like I have learned so much about the committee which is so amazing so great I want this back from and entity background so I would say it differs from many people here have have what motivates them good when an evident effect I need to go and show women danger there were not all about fashion and catering the we can cordon we can be good in Greek engineers to so it differs because the people of the legions few
there is nothing wrong with video games and and and the fun part of and come programming computing that that
many people enjoy but we will see that when people get all this technology in Africa they want to turn it so so that like Ronald's uh so that as Zimbabwe and factory Matt manufacturing some current work more efficiently so that uh and uh the market traders can find a better uh make sure that the cell with the food they concerned with real local problems and that's what's on their minds that so I think that is what keeps people there OK we already running way over time so 1 last
fall short question short answers so that I guess you will all be Huron today all and I think you really have to ask any questions come from sigh again it it 1 is ready for a piker about how to do that but it really needs to be done that was yeah it can we there
is ready for plankton and you have to be done and he was you know the the champion that was the rule under former
yes there is a this all the time companies in the US so an from
thank you so much for listening to us it's meant an awful lot to us to be here it's a huge honor and um means great what deal to us this is some information that you should follow up or you can follow up with I should me we love to talk to you I have some Picon Namibia's because if your laptop is got a blank space on it and thank you and you will see Europe icon Africa few
