On behalf of all the PyCon organizing committee members, I would like to thank everyone for their support for PyCon Singapore 2015 which was held at Singapore Polytechnic from 17th June to 19th June.
This marks the 6th conference to be organized by the Python User Group Community in Singapore and we hope that your feedback and support will help us improve and take the conference to the next level in the coming years. A short feedback form is available online which will not take you more than five minutes to complete.
Thanks to the efforts of Ivan and Mr Gi, along with the support of the Ministry of Education Singapore, the first EDU Summit was successfully held on the first day of the conference. The summit brought together Computing and Computer Science educators from O-levels to tertiary institutions to share their teaching experiences and upcoming changes to the computing curriculum for O and A levels.
We will be updating this blog post with links to slide decks once we receive them from the speakers. Keep a lookout for them either via this blog post or our Twitter account. Our friends from engineers.sg have also recorded videos of talks during this conference and these videos will also be viewable online once they are available.
PyCon SG 2015 would not have been possible without the tremendous support we have received from our sponsors and volunteers. I would like to thank our sponsors, Singapore Polytechnic, Braintree, Neo, Bitmazk, Carousell, ThoughtWorks, Python Software Foundation and MySQL for supporting the community and making this conference possible. Student helpers and their teacher, Mr Gi, from Dunman High School played a huge role in ensuring that the conference ran smoothly. Special thanks go out to our keynote speakers Andrew Godwin, Jessica McKellar and Lynn Root for their inspirational keynotes.
Last but not least, as the chair of this conference, I would like to thank the organizing committee for all their hard work in the past year to make this conference a reality. We will soon be opening a call for volunteers for PyCon SG 2016; if you are interested in helping out with the conference (no technical chops required), look out for our next meeting!
Sincerely, Victor Neo
Chairman, PyCon Singapore 2015
