Python workshop at local college


So yesterday and today I am joining a friend on a workshop he is doing about Python. The workshop is being handled at a local college. I think is great that more and more open source software is being introduced to the university. But this let me have a small talk about the acceleration of technology and the bureacracy within the college’s that will just not keep up with the technology. I brought the example of the use of Flash vs. the use of other technology like LAMP development, Ruby on Rails, Voice over IP and different technology that just won’t touch the university because of the structure which the university goes.Python should be one of the languages that should be taught in the universities just because is simple enough to learn to program and also flexible to produce software rather fast as opposed to C/C++ and Java.
