Informal Introductory Python Tutorial Meetup

A structure of what I plan on covering (if we get to it all -- if we do not -- fear not this will likely span multiple weeks!): 


- Python Data types
- Playing with strings and all that :D
- Python Scoping rules (important to know this)
- Python flow control (conditionals and looping constructs)
- Lists, Dictionaries, Sets and other collection types (I will especially cover List comprehensions -- one of the awesomely powerful things python has to offer)
- Classes and a bit of Object Oriented Programming (OOP) concepts and ideas...

What I want to do is live code an IRC bot using the twisted framework which will tie all of these things together.

Requirements: We will be using Python 2.7 (I'd like to use Python 3.3 but twisted does not support it). If you're on Mac OSX see [1], if you use linux -- use the package manager and if you're on windows see [2].

In addition to that: if you would like to run it -- having pip installed is useful as this is how python manages and installs libraries[3].

    The instructor was totally unprepared, seemed confused, and kept saying he was going to "bullshit" the whole thing. I was very disappointed because I was really excited to visit Hack Manhattan for the first time.

      I'm sorry if you had a bad time -- I wish you spoke to me before posting this -- also for what it's worth I did not in any way say this was formal

    Hi, 

    Accidently I forgot my laptop charger in the left. Would it be possible if I can come some time tomorrow to collect it? 

    Please let me know. 

    Thanks
