Organize and learn a bit of python

Please note the change in location. Directions to Dimensional are at bottom.

Bring your laptop or pad of choice. We will use python 2.7 using a plain text editor and the command line on your system.

We will have three levels of discussion: never ever to beginner, advanced beginner/intermediate and more advanced.

I will post exercises for the meetup this weekend. Please take a look at the exercises because what you discover is what we will be discussing.

Come 15 minutes early if you need help installing python. You will do fine with most python installations but we will focus on 2.7.

You may want to try repl.it for a python 2.7 interpreter in your browser. It works well for what we are doing once the green band tells you it is loaded. Don't panic. It takes a few seconds to load.

Thank you Greg Daem and Chris Kucharski for helping us meet at Dimensional. Thank you again Aaron Pigeon and indeed.com for our first meeting space.

Directions: Dimensional is in the large building at the top the hill at Bee Cave Rd (FM 2244) and 360. Going west on Bee Cave take the first right past 360. Drive past a bank, park in the parking structure and take the stairs or elevator to the top. Dimensional is to the north of the structure.

    That was a great meetup! Whether on purpose or accident the format of showing the solution to a problem first with a simple portion of code, then building on that solution but covering edge cases and adding more advanced concepts or an entirely new approach altogether was very helpful. Also the PythonAnywhere portion was great. I can picture a live coding tutorial where one person codes up a real life application while another person explains what he's doing or modules he's using and why, etc. Because anyone who's tried live coding while speaking knows how much more difficult that can be.

    One request, if you suggested a book, tutorial, etc. that helped you learn python can you repost it here or in some other online shared document with a link?

    Thanks to everyone who made that time so great.
