Intro to Python Class

  • Oct 20, 2012 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

PyLadies DC and DC Python want you to join us for a workshop for women and their friends who have no or limited programming experience. This event is welcoming and respectful of trans women. Men are welcome as guests of women who are attending (please RSVP as well).

On Saturday, you'll set up your development environment and start learning Python. On Sunday, we'll spend the morning on a lecture-based introduction to the language, taking breaks to practice concepts on bite-sized exercises. In the afternoon we'll break out into groups to practice Python through short projects on a variety of fun and practical topics.

At the end of the workshop, we will help connect with the closest Python user group so that you may continue the learning Python well beyond the workshop.

Venue details

The event is hosted by AU School of communication and the AU Computer Science Department. We will be in SCAN (Sports Annex), Room 157. (Parking instructions and directions using public transit will be posted soon.)


Things to bring
: a wireless-enabled laptop that you can install stuff to and a plug for the laptop.

    Amazing! The folks teaching were tremendously nice and helpful! I'm now able to automate a bunch of work that I once did by hand! Awesome!
