Hello, Yoshimasa here. My colleagues and I run Python Engineer Development Co., Ltd. which administers the Python Certified Engineer Basic Examination (the Python Exam).
PyCon JP, Japan’s largest international Python conference, happened at the end of August, and we joined as Gold Sponsors. We offered an online booth and gave four mini presentations there.

To prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus disease COVID-19, stay-at-home restrictions have been put in place across the world.
How COVID-19 changed the way we work
To prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19, people are being asked to avoid going out as much as possible. For this reason, many companies that previously required their employees to commute to an office, have now permitted telecommuting and have hurriedly established remote working systems.
Japan’s efforts to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic have lead to a big increase in free education websites. Try searching the web for the terms "Python 無料 学習” (muryou gakushuu — free education), and you’ll see you’ll get a huge number of hits. These sites can allow you to study while you’re still overseas, so I highly recommend giving them a try.
