PyConES 2019

After three months of organization, all students and coaches were finally meeting in person at the UPV early in the morning expecting a great day. All our expectations were clearly surpassed :) We had 20 students and 9 coaches. The past week each team had a teleconference to prepare the installation, so we weren’t complete strangers. [Leer más]
