Hey all - Just got invited to teach Library Carpentry to archivists at their Australian conference later this year so if we could get input from archivists for the sprint, that would be good!

@weaverbel Awesome. When this year? Is there any opportunity to gather needs/requirements from attendees in advance that might feed into the sprint?

@drjwbaker Will find out more from the inviter tomorrow. Battling a monster storm here - we are like Noah in the Ark at this stage - waters rising all around us. A month's rain dumped in one day! Flooding all over. Stay tuned!

@weaverbel and all. I'd be up for the python chat. Have you got a date/time yet? I think. You could do one lesson on using it as an intro to programming. Talk about variables, data structures, flow control etc. Then another lesson that was a practical application. I know you mentioned Dargo.
Django even. Could I suggest flask. It's way easier than Django. You cod show it as a way to get a website up and running very quickly.

@drjwbaker The archivists conf is in September 2017 and I'm hoping to do the workshop on Monday 25th.

@weaverbel do you have more details about your N.Am trip? Looks like the Library Carpentry event in Ottawa will more likely be later in the year.
But you're still welcome!

Hi @timtomch Thanks for that but I have decided to go to Boston instead and teach an LC workshop there with @JulianeS_twitter on 15 May. After that I am going to Scotland so Canada will have to wait till next time :-(

Great - thanks. We have three but you can never have too many helpers and it is a good way for someone to get to the workshop and learn something !
Not to mention make new friends !
