BITS Extends Educational Opportunities Yet Again

During the last 6 months the BITS organization trained over 130 blind and visually impaired individuals in the Python programming language. Many of them
are doing great work and excelling due to the tremendous efforts of our educational team. We produced countless hours of content, wrote lots of documentation
and held months of classes and office hour support for students. We learned a lot about our efforts, and we are eager to start a new journey of learning
for BITS students. We are offering two classes starting in September. Keep reading for additional information.
