"This was Nguyen's second effort as a volunteer. "My first time was during the 2008 celebration, in which I gave a talk on free and open source software in science education. I definitely look forward to volunteering to help out in any way I can during next year's SFD," he told iTWire.

"This year he had volunteered to speak about Python, in particular how Python could be used as a way to introduce people to computer programming.

""Teaching beginners how to program a computer can be easy or it can be difficult," Nguyen said.

(The talk is here and his notes are here.)"
