First Class (beginner session)

This is for the first hour of the event on October 6th, which is the beginner hour.

Note: the NERD requires anyone coming into the building to have an ID. Driver's Licenses work, as well as passports or credit cards with a picture.

Bring your own laptop, and **BEFORE CLASS, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE** see the link below for instructions on getting set up. If you have a drop of compassion in your soul, please do not show up without having gone to the link below and attempted to follow the instructions. That will cause me physical pain. It is okay to mess it up so long as you gave it a try.


The 1pm-2pm hour is for total beginners. We'll be working on arithmetic, variables, strings, conditionals, comparisons, basic input and output, and learning about the interpreter. OR as far as we get in an hour. I'll be going as slow as needed.

When you get there, check in with the front desk and tell them you're here for the learning with python class in the Thomas Paul room.

For both sessions, this and the advanced one which follows it at 2pm, subsequent classes will pick up right where we leave off. Note that the class on the 13th is *not* a subsequent class-- it's a duplicate of the first class, which is being held twice to fit as many people as possible.

    Something has come up for me and I can't make it. I hope there are more of these in future.

      There's a duplicate next Sunday! I also put up the class's entire content on this site, with examples, as a .docx under Files, which is under "More" next to "Discussions" at the top of the page.

    Sorry for this wide spread email.
    I am currently on the waiting list (with few others). It will be appreciated if folks that are RSVP that actually can not attend will update their status accordingly .

    Thank you for our help.

    By the way, I set the RSVP limit at the actual amount the room can hold. Lots of people would say that's foolish because some RSVPs won't show. This first time I'm going to be an optimist and see how it goes.
