[Python Boot Camp](https://www.pycon.jp/support/bootcamp.html)(#pycamp) is a Python beginner course held all over Japan. #pycamp is organized by PyCon JP Committee and has been held 30 times in 28 regions starting from 2016. The purpose of #pycamp is to expand the Python community throughout Japan, and as a result several local communities were established.

In this poster session I will share about Python Boot Camp's achievements, how it is organized and how we devised it. And I would like to discuss about how to extend this idea beyond Japan, how to expand in Japan more, next steps etc.
