Coursera Python Basics Study Group!

Hello everyone! At the end of the workshop, several of us discussed meeting together to work through this coursera class together which begins today:

https://www.coursera.org/course/interactivepython

I got the email addresses of several interested people, and wanted to put a message out here on the group to see if anyone else would like to attend.

Erica Douglass at Opportunity Space has been gracious enough to make this place an open house as far as any workshop/study group is concerned; in addition I work here so I can set up the space or any materials we may need. I know East Austin might be a bit of a drive for some of y'all but I think this is going to be a great opportunity to work on really learning Python, and with a great group of like-minded and focused people in a distraction-free (yet homey!) zone.

If you haven't signed up for the class already you can still do it on coursera's website. I'll be emailing to the people I have on hand right now, and if I hear from any more people I will add you to the list!

Please post here about your meetup day preferences. I can do weekends after 2pm, and weekday afternoon/evenings.

    Hi all! Though I'm very interested in this meetup, I won't be able to join today :( I hope to join the next one. Thanks.

      no worries Nabila! if you keep working through the coursera class and want to work on the homework/mini-projects with us, show up at the next one. Any time you guys are able to make it, at whatever point you are at in the course!

      Hi there. I'm here but looks like I'm early.. The door is locked (or I'm at the wrong place haha :))

    I need to start this course! Lacking the discipline right now...

    Thanks, Jay, for getting this going.

      No worries! Glad you're making it out!

    I signed up for the course, but I haven't started yet. I was hoping to use this time to focus on going through the material. Is this the correct use of this study group? (I would hate to join and not be able to actively participate if that is the expectation..)

      Just FYI Amy, this weekend is the deadline for the Project for week 1 (if you want a grade).

      Amy - definitely come on out and join us! I think everyone is taking the class at a slightly different pace, so it'll be fine that you're just starting, and there will be plenty of people to help out if you have questions.

    I could make it Wed or Thurs probably every other week. 7pm is a good time for me.

    I signed up for the class, and would love to meet. Evenings are best for me, but things are crazy busy right now so it might be a few weeks before I can actually come.
