PaleXO + Opensource = PyXO!

PaleXO, a team of amazing and enthusiastic volunteers dedicated to working with the XO and supporting childhood education in Palestine, just hosted their first python workshop, cleverly titled PyXO! One of their members, Mohammad Nawahda, decided to start the dynamic team "to make sure PaleXOers get the proper training about Python to ensure they have what it takes to start developing some great local activities and customizing others." The workshop appeared to be a great success with tons of members from the community excited to get involved and gain basic python training in order to help develop new activities to help Palestinian children learn with their XOs! Check out their full blog post here!

I will actually be in Ramallah for OLPC this week and would love to meet if possible. Please email me at and perhaps we can speak further; I know several of my colleagues have already been in touch with your program and I look forward to learning more from you work.
