LPTHW Beginner Meetup #2

Are you brand new to Python? We're going to be meeting every other week to go through Zed Shaw's Learn Python the Hard Way. It's free and you can find it right here:
http://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/
If you are working through LPTHW, please try to complete exercises 11-20. If you can't finish, don't worry, still come. We'll work out any issues together. You can also email [masked] if you have any questions.

If you have another book you'd rather work through, the topics covered this week will be: functions, files, and prompts.

NOTE: if you have a bit more of experience in Python and like to help people, also come... some TAs could definitely help :D

    I wasn't able to enter the building this Sunday..all of the rotating doors were locked. It's possible I was in the wrong place--I was trying One Broadway at the rotating doors at the corner of Broadway and 3rd

      Sometimes I have to make a ruckus to get the security guards to notice me. (Also, I don't think they ever use their powers of automated-unlocking on the rotating doors, just the normal ones.)

      Ok next time I will be sure to get inside!! I just didn't know what was going on there whether the meetup might have been cancelled or what. Thank you!

    Barb asked me how she could share code online and I was all like, "read Pro Git." Then I kicked myself for saying that. A simpler way? Sign up for a GitHub account and share your code as a "Gist." You can create a gist here: https://gist.github.com/

    Once you click create, look to the right-hand side. Under "Link to this gist." You can share that URL with us PyLadies on the Discussion Board. I'd love to talk code between sessions!

    Hi guys, my sister and myself are interested in coming. We of course were not in attendance for the first meetup. I see below that completing exercise 11-20 will put us on course for the 13th but what was covered prior to that. Thanks!

    Hi
    I was not at the 1st meeting - could you let me know where you left off so I can catch up.
    Thanks!

      You'll be right on track if you're working on or have completed Excercises 11 - 20 by October 13!
