We’re A PyDev Gold Sponsor

Kichwa Coders are proud to be a gold sponsor of Pydev. For us this is a continuation of the support we pledged last year.  This year has also seen Kichwa Coders join the Eclipse Science Working Group and become part of the global collaboration working towards reusable open source software. Python has always played a major part in scientific software and will continue to do so going forward. PyDev is the best Python development environment out there, we love it and our clients and their customers love it.  We’re excited about the plans ahead, particularly the Python profiler.  Here’s where you can learn more about the new features planned and join us in supporting PyDev.

EclipseCon France 2014

The Kichwa Coders team is in sunny Toulouse this week for Eclipsecon France.  This year’s conference features an ‘unconference‘ beforehand, where we’ll be meeting with other members of the science working group.

At the conference itself, there will be a host of talks on tools in action, eclipse in the industry, IoT and lots of other cool Eclipse related stuff.  Tracy Miranda will be delivering two speeches, the first on Wednesday on ‘Lean Design Critique’ and on Thursday the boards will be coming out as Tracy does a demo and talk on ‘Espruino, Javascript for Things‘.

So come join us and say hi if you’re there.
