Teaching Python at Apple

When you think of learning Python, what type of developer or technologist comes to mind? Is it someone looking to get their first job or maybe moving from .NET to Python and looking for a shift in their careers?

While these are common moves, you may be surprised how many folks within a tech company learn new languages like Python to stay within that company. On this episode, you'll meet Ron Hayden. He founded the Software University internal training program at Apple and is now doing his own independent training around Python.

I think you'll find his story an interesting element in the mosaic of Python.
