IUMW Second Site Visit

On the 29th of April 2016 we made a second site visit to the Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, International University of Malaya-Wales and the Dean of the faculty, Prof. Dr. Patrice brought us around the campus showing us the facilities which will be available for PyCon MY 2016.

We spent around over 2 hours going around the facilities planning how the event can fit well with what will be available for us.

The Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics IUMW is also around 520 meters from the Putra Komuter train station, and will take you around 7 minutes to walk from the station to the faculty building.

Site visit to our venue

Today we went to have our second site visit to our venue at Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, University Malaya. We’ll be having our PyCon MY 2015 conference in the B Block

2015-07-22 16.50.38What we did today was to reconfirm the availability of the lecture halls for out tracks and the computer labs for our workshop.

The Faculty currently is going through some heavy construction which is taking up space in the parking lots behind the Faculty. This has the effect of reducing the amount of parking bays available, so we hope that participants can car pool or take public transportation to the venue.

Other than that, everything else looks good and we’re confident it will be an enjoyable weekend of pure Python goodness.

Looking forward to meeting you there!
