Python study group (Can't make Saturdays? See Sunday's group)

The focus will be working through these exercises:

http://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/

Feel free to bring a python project you're working on if you've already completed all the exercises in LPTHW.

 

Here are two ways you can come prepared so that in the event of a wifi fiasco, you can still learn python.

1) Download the text editor before you come. Any one of these would work:

http://macromates.com/

http://www.sublimetext.com/2

2) Download the pdf of this tutorial which is similar to LPTHW, plus the code companion files:

LAST BUT NOT LEAST: Feel free to generate tweets that we can play with, because tinkering with the Twitter API is always fun. Tweet one or more answers to the following question: "What is one thing you're looking forward to this weekend?"

and use #NYCPythonMeetup

 

Go Team Python!

      Wow, thanks! Michael N. also explained a lot of concepts to myself and others. He explained how to write classes and did a jython demo, too!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
