Even though he is not a coder David has become a regular visitor to PyCon UK supporting his son, Luke. David has found the community to be very welcoming and presented a Lightning Talk last year on the idea of coding in prisons.
David is a prison chaplain and is passionate about providing prisoners with hope and purpose. This can include inspiring and helping them to code and in providing employment opportunities on release.
He is keen to get a Code Club going in his own prison, HMP Onley - this ambition is still to be realised.
David is at PyCon UK from Friday to Monday and happy to connect with anyone during that time with any questions or just to say hello.
