DoJo

DoJos are informal Python meetings. Bring your Python questions and problems. DoJos are like group study sessions. Digressions from Python are common. All are welcome to the DoJos. Look for geeks with laptops. If we get smart, we'll print the python logo out on a sheet of paper and put it on a table.

If you come early, grab a table close to power outlets. Extra bonus points (maybe free pastry?) for bringing outlet strips and extension cords.

Panera's Wifi works, but is slow for downloading big stuff. If you need big stuff, try to download it before DoJos.

    Thanks very much Mike. This is an excellent resource. I see that it covers many age groups, so I'm also passing it along to my wife who teaches the gifted education section in third grade for our district, and who has taught Logo and Lego Robolab / NXT to youngsters many years ago.

    Dear Python Friends,

    I will be teaching my son scientific programming with Python in the[masked] school year, his senior year in high school. His school does not offer AP Programming or Numerical Methods. I am interested in opinions regarding resources.

    I plan to use "A Primer on Scientific Programming with Python" by Langangen as the primary text. I will also use "Numerical Methods in Engineering with Python" by Kiusalaas for math ideas. (My son has math through Differential Equations and physics through Statistical Thermodynamics, so I think these are appropriate.) We will supplement these with "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist" by Elkner, Downey and Meyers, "Python Programming" by Zelle, the website "Software Carpentry", and MIT 6.00 online lectures.

    Are ther any massive holes in my resources? Your opinions will be greatly appreciated. (I am a user, but not an expert.)

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
