What are the best resources for learning Python?


The Philosophy department at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver (where I work) is inviting applications for an Assistant Professor without Review (non-tenure track position) in Ethics: philosophy.ubc.ca/job-opportun

I'm applying for the position of a docent (associate professor for you Americans) and I have to specify the field. If you're a docent, what is your field called?

Best practices for pronoun badges at academic conferences? :BoostOkay:

My local running shop is called 'Amphibian King'. I'm off to see the Amphibian King.

Are there and/or advocates in these parts? I'm new to Mastodon and would love to connect.

I'm teaching students about online and next week. Are there resources that I should definitely share with them?

Looking for relevant research:

Ride sharing/hailing services just got go-ahead to operate in Vancouver (BC, Canada). It's all over the news.

One thing I haven't heard much about: the potential environmental impact. Are there likely to be more cars on the roads/people choosing this over transit or biking? I expect research has been done on this sort of question...anyone know of any?
