For the last couple of months I’ve been involved in a great project: getting Haredic (ultra-orthodox jews) man into the software world!
Last week, we got an exciting visit from Oren Libermann, a CNN reporter, who published this nice story.
My job in the training process is to teach them the Python programing language. Were doing a 3 month course, in which we go from learning the basic features of the language to writing a full blown (but small) software project.
The last mini-project we did might give an short example of what the course entails: the students we’re given a CSV file, with some basic data about the world’s countries. They needed to analyze that data and create a website which they published later using Github pages. Here is a sample of the results: 1, 2, 3.
Theres much more to write and I’ll try to update as the course advances!
