Let's Learn Python - Introduction to Programming

A hands-on beginner budding programmers workshop where kids will learn about Python programming and will get a chance to do fun projects such as:
-Guess The Number
-Jokes
-Birthday

If time permits, we will teach kids how to do little bit more advanced stuff to wet their appetite.

Update 1:

In preparation for our upcoming meetup, please make sure to install Python 3.x on your laptops. Here are video instructions for Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux: http://inventwithpython.com/videos/

    Here are some links from yesterday:
    - Invent with Python - Al Sweigart: http://inventwithpython.com/­
    - Python for Kids (free chapter 4 with Turtle drawing: http://nostarch.com/pythonforki...­
    - Cloud9 IDE - write, run, and debug your code online: https://c9.io/­

    Here's another resource that we did not discuss but you may find helpful. It's an online Python IDE developed by Rice University: http://www.codeskulptor.org/­ it has some nice GUI properties that you can take advantage of. Here is an example of a Pong game that I wrote:

    I’d like to mention another resource that’s especially useful for people who have some previous coding experience and want to get up to speed with Python. It’s Mark Pilgrim’s book “Dive Into Python 3″, the full text of which is here:
    http://getpython3.com/diveintop...­ It's downloadable as a .pdf as well.

      I saw you enjoying it as well...the same way as I did. It was son's first time programming. He enjoyed it too! Looking forward to the next one.

  • Andy N.

    Is there an age limit? What's the general age ranges here?

    April 29, 2013

    • Hugo E.

      No, not really. On the lower end as long as you believe that you kid can handle it, then you can bring her along. On the upper end it doesn't really matter.
