Learning python on a normal laptop is boring. What about trying to learn it on a Raspberry Pi 4, and using only Open Source tools? Tyler will show you how you can do exactly this; learn Python with Open Source tools on a Raspberry Pi 4. Here are some more questions that are going to be answered in his talk: How well does it work putting your work on Github? Is it a learning experience to learn on the Pi? How well does it help a non-python programmer learn Python? What are some advantages/disadvantages while using the Pi? Was it very efficient? What are some of the key commands that he learned how to use in Python?

Throughout Tyler’s talk he is going to address how well learning Python using only Open Source tools worked. While Tyler is learning along the way he will be saving files of key learning points to Github. Then everyone can access these and use them to teach themselves more about Python. Tyler will also be making tutorials along the way in his presentation. Tyler will be showing some of the tools he used live in his presentation so you can see how easy it is to use Open Source software to learn Python.
