Learning Django, Learning French
In this talk Nicole will explore her experience of learning French and Django at the same time; and examine some of the common themes between both fields.
Together we'll dismantle the myth that children are better learners than adults, look at how motivation impacts learning, explore the benefits of mentorship, and discover how we can boost the confidence of new Djangonauts.
