About the course

At the beginning...

In 2012 at the »PyCon DE« in Leipzig a proposal to establish a programming contest was discussed. The goal was to teach young people Python, or preferrable, a programming language that we use in our jobs. Soon, the conference was over but nothing happened!

In march 2013, Peter Koppatz asked Reimar Bauer at the »Linuxtag« in Berlin about the progress of the idea of a programming contest. Reimar answered that nothing had happened since Leipzig!

So Peter presented the idea to combine programming with Python and building 3D worlds. Still skeptical, Reimar listened to Peter and he recognized the huge potential of this idea. And so the stone began to roll. Now the first competition is over. And its success is a motivation to improve the course material and prepare a version that can easily be translated to other languages.

So now you can:
