June Presentation Night: Puzzle Solutions

Come hear about peoples' solutions to the project night puzzles! Sponsored by Red Hat and Kyruus.

If you've been to a project night, you know we often have puzzles there.  Different people solve the puzzles differently.  We'll have solvers show us their code, explain their approach, and teach us some Python along the way.  It will be fun, interactive, and instructive!

Try out the puzzles yourself beforehand! We'll have people talking about solutions to at least:

• A Hot Date with itertools,

• Twitter Puddle, and

• Python Poetry.

Red Hat is sponsoring pizza.

Kyruus is sponsoring drinks afterwards at Meadhall.

    I enjoyed the challenge of the problems. Some of the problems were pretty long. I prefer problems that are more mathematical in nature. Those tend to be less ambiguous. I have been using Project Euler ( for several years and have found the nearly 500 problems there to be quite good with well defined scope.
