It was our pleasure to learn from him.
Anuvrat parashar was a developer at 1mg and is a great contributor to open source technology.
He is a python programmer,coder,FOSSEE enthusiast and evangelist. He is also a django professional and is a great backend developer. It was our great privilege to learn from such a learned person like him.
Various topic were covered during the interaction out of which the topics majorily covered are listed below-
1)  Introduction to linux
2)  Getting started with python 2.7

4)  Coding and development usingpython 2.7
The event was a big success. We received an application from over 200 students who desperately wanted to be a part of this event, out of which seventy chosen were called on to attend the workshop.
The programme was organised to provide the students to give them a brief knowledge about the programming languages and also provide them a hands on experience on the same. The event not only clarified the python related concepts of the students but also made them aware about the need to learn programming full flegedely to compete in this tech-savvy world.

Python is easy to use, powerful, and versatile, making it a great choice for beginners and experts alike. Python’s readability makes it a great first programming language — it allows you to think like a programmer and not waste time understanding the mysterious syntax that other programming languages can require.
There are some perks of learning Python , which differentiates it from the other languages out there,Python is a easy to learn language and can prove to be your stepping some into the world of programming. The one who has a good command over the Python language will always find it easy to deal with every possible kind of language and obviously will grasp it in a better way.
The future of Python in India is very clear and commendable. It is used daily in the operations of the Google search engine, the video sharing web site YouTube, NASA , and the New York Stock Exchange.
