Event: PyCon Dhaka 2014
If you are in the programming sector you might have heard about Python. For those who don’t know what Python is, it’s is a cross-platform programming language which first appeared 23 years ago and is widely used till date.
Even in Bangladesh there is a great deal of people who work on it. There is a community as well but it never got the chance to hold a proper conference. Good to see things have now changed as we prosper towards Digital Bangladesh. This year for the first time in Bangladesh a PyCon event was carried out under the approval of Pycon.org in Dhaka City.
