Boey Pak Cheong

Boey Pak Cheong graduated from Universiti Malaya with a B. Sc. (Hons) in Chemical Technology but became keenly interested and actively involved in computer programming from the late 1980s onwards. He pioneered the usage of Python in Malaysia since 1995 and has more than 20 years experience in software development using various programming languages (including Python, C, PHP, Javascript, HTML, CSS2, LaTeX ) in the Windows and Linux operating systems, with 19 years experience in using the Python language in a production environment.

Since 2006, he has conducted professional training courses in Python programming at the introductory, intermediate and advanced levels for several leading multinational companies in Malaysia, including Intel, F-Secure, CSGI, Experian and MIMOS amongst many others. He also conducts courses for the Django Web Development Framework, Linux and Tcl/Tk.

He also speaks frequently about Python, most recently at the MiniPyCon 2014 in Kuala Lumpur and at the Institution of Engineers, Malaysia.

Currently he operates Pytech Resources which specializes in Python and Django training and consultancy and software development. He has previously worked in technical and management positions with British Petroleum, ITT and Alcatel and also attended a senior management training program at the London Business School, UK.

He created the software for a leading e-commerce website using Python that dynamically generates comprehensive pdf reports either in English or Chinese and continues active development of new products for this website. But today Boey is primarily focused on teaching Python and Django.


For 2 years, I've started self-study with Python, with no development background. It was really a hard time, but thanks to P.C. Boey and his course, my thinking in Python was straightened out.

The course is very knowledgeable and good learning for those who don't have any idea about Python and for all those working with Python.


The course was handful for newbie. It covered all scope of Python basics and also was with hands on practice. I really loved the training material’s provided, which has been a great reference in designing my programs now . Thank you P C Boey.
