  • Quite a few bad puns
  • Working with the basic data types
  • Explaining data structures in detail:
  1. - Dictionaries
  2. - Lists
  3. - Tuples
  • Work on the control flow structures:  - If-else, For loops, While loops
  • Basic file operations
  • Writing functions and using them in more than a few scenarios
  • Introduction to writing classes
  • Basic error handling
  • Introduction to using libraries  - sys  - os

The course is outlined such that we will have one script that we will be working on enhancing throughout the duration of the course. However, there will be one off exercises in between which will be used to explain specific concepts in detail. It is going to be completely hands on where you will do and learn along with the instructor as well as by yourself.

    Hi Krace - thanks for scheduling the meetup. Is "Learn python by solving problems" the entire agenda? If not, I can give a talk on lessons learnt while I was trying to automate docstring testing. Would be around half an hour. I can come to the meetup at around 2.

      This time we are planning only for workshop. We will bring back talks soon.
