Please bring your laptop. We will use python 2.7 and learn by doing using a plain text editor of your choice and the command line(your terminal).
Zed Shaw (of "Learn Python the Hard Way") has a good tutorial on finding your way around the command line: http://cli.learncodethehardway.org/book/introduction.html
Come 15 minutes early if you need help installing python.
We can use teachers and mentors. Please contact me.
Thanks to Aaron Pigeon and indeed.com for an excellent place to meet, and thanks to everyone else who helped.
Let's make learning python fun.
