Fun fact - In 2019 every school kid in Australia from Grades 3-8 is learning to code. And lots of them are doing it through courses on Grok Learning.

Our platform helps teachers teach things like Python, Web and micro:bit. One of their favourite things is our auto-marker - we give feedback to students by running their code on our servers (a sandboxing nightmare!).

We've got interesting problems to solve, like - How do you simulate a micro-controller for marking? Can we design an interface that helps you understand code? How do you write a course that kids find engaging?

Our platform is built on Python (with other stuff) and our office is over in Glebe, near Sydney University. If CS education interests you, you should chat to us.

The Django Software Foundation is a US-based non-profit organisation with the mission to promote, support, and advance the Django Web framework - the Web framework for perfectionists with deadlines.

Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. Built by experienced developers, it takes care of much of the hassle of Web development, so you can focus on writing your apps without needing to reinvent the wheel. It’s free and open source, and used by startups and Fortune 500 companies - companies like Instagram, Pinterest, NASA, and the US Library of Congress.

The Django Software Foundation sponsors sprints, meetups, gatherings and community events, protects the intellectual property of the Django project, and contributes to improvements in the Web industry, both technical and social.

The Django Software Foundation is the Specialist Track Sponsor of DjangoCon AU 2019
