First Class (advanced session)

This is for the second hour of the event on October 6th, which is the advanced 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 2pm-3pm hour is for those who have already learned to program in other languages. We'll be implementing some basic programs that demonstrate Python's syntax, covering variables, conditionals, looping, functions, some built-in functions, some modules, the interpreter, and probably some details about scoping and argument passing in Python. OR as far as we get in an hour. We'll see! Lots of content promised though.

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

For both sessions, this and the beginner one which precedes it at 1pm, 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.

    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.
