Python Class

Learn how to work with Pythons and Boa Constrictors!
We will also look at the programming language Python.
"For those of you who don't know, Python is a general-purpose, high-level programming language that will run on Linux, Windows, Mac, and probably an abacus. Python is relatively easy to learn because the design philosophy emphasizes code readability and natural syntax. Python can be used for scripting or writing full applications, web-apps, etc. It's a fantastic language and is used by many organizations such as NASA, Google, and Dropbox.

What I'd like to do is go ahead and start a crash course on Python fundamentals aimed at people who haven't really programmed at all and get up through the basics in a month or two, probably through a weekly meeting. Each meeting would have a precise agenda so interested people with some experience could easily decide when to start coming if they didn't want to start on the ground level. " - Instructor Daniel H.

    Hello. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I'm afraid I won't be able to be at the Makerspace today. I'm very sorry about the late notice and I encourage any of you who want to work on your Coursera projects to collaborate with others to still attend; the classroom is still reserved for the normal times. I hope to see all of you again very soon.

    I'm still showing up. I am looking into Coursera, and would love to hack along with everyone else. I also have helped others learn and hone their skills using Python Koans (https://github.com/gregmalcolm/python_koans) and so am updating those if anyone is interested.

    Will do my best to be there! I am having difficulty 'rebooting' and getting back on my feet... uhhh, wait... Pythons don't have feet, maybe that's my problem... Poor approach!!! Either way, always ready to learn.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
