The first Vigala Code Camp

Saturday, October 15, 2016. Today was the first Vigala Code Camp, a part of the EU Code Week initiative.

The event had been announced on their website, but otherwise I had not made any publicity. I like to start gently.

So this first edition was small, it lasted only one day, there were only two participants and only one speaker (namely me).

But we worked efficitently, it was a good experience and maybe the beginning of a great new tradition. Jüri promised that he and the Vana-Vigala professional school will help with future camps.

This camp was for intermediate level developers with at least some Python experience. We learned how to write database applications using Lino. As a preparation the participants had followed the first two sections of the Developer’s Guide’i (“Getting started” and “Your first application”).

Vigala Code Camps are free for the participants, but you need your own laptop computer with Python already installed. I do this as a volunteer and in the hope of finding new helpers for Lino.
