Introduction to Python - Beginners

Python is intended to be a highly readable programming language. It is designed to have an uncluttered visual layout, frequently using English keywords where other languages use punctuation. This is a two-hour course on introduction to Python, wherein students will learn basics of programming in python, Python Shell, input/output statements, data types, and conditional executions. Towards the end of the lecture, we will do few exercises and kindle interest in kids who are just starting programming. 

The attendees must be 10+ years old to participate in the workshop.

    Thanks for the feedback. The kids go back and do something with what they learned and get thirsty for more ... that is the key. Please continue to share your feedback, suggestions and experiences.

      I dont see the 10+ age requirement stated in the meetup details anywhere. I already enrolled my son, who is 8. Should I still bring my son or will you refund the enrollment fee? Thanks!

      This course requires kids should be 10+ years old. We missed adding age requirement in the meetup but have updated it now. If you have already paid, you can send kid for the class, but they might not pick much in the class. The meetup has no refund policy.
