Python for Beginners: Part II

Continuation of Python for Beginners: Part I.

We will review functions and cover classes then introduce exception handling. After that we will shift gears away from syntax and do an overview of major modules from the standard library.

Preparation: Download Python. You can either get the default version (basic) or one with the most popular libraries included. A popular distribution is Continuum's Anaconda which you can get here.

Don't forget to bring a wireless enabled laptop!

Instructor Bio: Ben Darnell has been working in Python since 2002 and maintains the Tornado web framework.  He helped to build Google Reader, Friendfeed, Brizzly, Dropbox, and Viewfinder, and now works at Square.

**We are looking for TAs and instructors. Let us know if you have a good referral or you yourself are interested!**
