A Few Things We Learned from Doing a Workshop at #PyDelhiConf

Here are a few lessons I learned, doing a workshop at #PyDelhiConf
  1. Chatbots are interesting to people (we had good attendance)
  2. Jump into the code after showing a couple of overview diagrams (I talked too much)
  3. Send the code and tools to the participants a few days earlier
  4. Make it interactive (one of the organizers came by and told me during our session)
  5. Just because you are going to a Python conference, don’t assume that everyone knows Python. Lots of students and beginners were in attendance.
  6. Do code walkthroughs – very clear and very concise
  7. Don’t underestimate the time needed to do a good workshop. Use time wisely.
  8. Take the help of the community during the workshop, a couple of kindred spirits helped others.
  9. Always go with a few copies of all the software needed in pen drives.
  10. Ask yourself one question and let it guide the flow – what nanoskill will a participant get from their investment of time in your workshop
