Learning Python, Learning French

Nicole Harris

Audience level:


In this talk, Nicole explores her experience of learning French and Python "en même temps" and asks the question: What can the Python community learn from the language learning community?


Learning to code is seen as a new literacy akin to learning a second spoken language - but is it? In this talk I'll explore my experiences learning French and Python and examine some of the common themes between both fields. Together we'll dismantle the myth that adults cannot learn as well as children and explore what it really means to be fluent. Finally, we'll explore immersion based learning and look at how it might help us become better Python programmers.
