    Is there anyone in the group who's using framework?

    I have an upcoming project that will require the use of this framework, and I'm seeking guidance on how to implement it.

      First rule of thumb with python = learn to love monty python references. ;D

      I found that reading and referencing "Learning Python" and "Programming Python" helped me immensely. "Python Cookbook" may also help you understand how to code is put together.

      Try jumping into using Django framework - that will help you apply what you learn very easily and see results.

      If you're new to programming there's a Coursera course that just began today. It uses python 3, and the first offering received rave reviews. It might be worth checking out. https://www.coursera.o...­

      It can get changed even within a few hours of the meetup starting. I've had that happen to me and was able to get in on one meetup earlier in the year. So keep your eyes peeled!

    There's always a newbies/beginners table, with helpful people, at the project nights. If you're already a programmer in (say) C++, Java, Ruby, Javascript or Lisp, try
