Dear Proto-Pythonista,

Welcome! To those that pre-registered ... you must officially register at the Eventbrite site linked below. Even if you have already gotten your tickets through Eventbrite, please read on.

This is the first of a few announcements we expect to send in anticipation of the Python Bootcamp 2016, to be held on the UC Berkeley campus from August 22 to August 23. 

1) ACTION REQUIRED: We've had an overwhelming amount of interest this year and thus need you each to formally register for the bootcamp through our Eventbrite site (if you preregistered, you should have gotten an email with the password; if not, email us at

Please do so by AUG 16 @ 2pm to save your spot.  YOU ARE NOT GUARANTEED A SPOT UNTIL YOU SIGN UP.

We ask a small fee for everyone associated with the UC and national labs to help defray costs. If the fee presents a hardship for you, please email us back. Industry participants will be asked to pay a larger fee, which is substantially less than what bootcamp-for-hire companies charge.  

2) In the next ~week or so we'll be sending emails describing what you'll need to do to get yourself up and running before the bootcamp. Please make sure you can bring a laptop (your own or on loan) for all two days of the bootcamp.

3) This is also the good time to start working through the official Python tutorial if you haven't already:

That's it for now. Enjoy the remainder of your summer!

Josh Bloom, on behalf of all the Camp Counselors
