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.

    First of all, thanks Robert for heading up the class last time--and for tolerating all my questions. I have another question (which I also posted on the Dallas Pythoneers site):
    My son is new to Python & he formed a social programming & tinkering group with other teens. Some of the teens know Python a little & some are very new to it. My son uses Codecademy to teach himself. Are there any good beginner level collaborative projects for those just learning Python? I'm thinking each teen can do a block of code and then put the project together -- any suggestions or online sites where I can find some beginner collaborative projects?
