MAY 12: Intro to programming (using Python) - Part 1 of 2

Hey Everyone,

Our next workshop will be a REPEAT of basic introduction to programming, where we will introduce you to the absolute basics of writing code. We will get you set up using a friendly programming language called Python, and you will make some drawings to illustrate the principles behind some simple programming concepts. You don't need any experience, just a willingness to learn and a laptop :) 

Please RSVP only if you're coming along as a learner. If you would like to coach, that's awesome, thank you! But please instead email us at [masked] (that's so we can make sure we have enough coaches for people who are learning). 

You will need to bring a laptop, to work on the exercises; we will help you get set up with everything else on the day. If you're curious, you can get a sneak peek of the material at http://opentechschool.github.io/python-beginners/en/index.html.

So your registration/check-in when you get to Skills Matter will be a lot quicker, please register your details here as well : https://skillsmatter.com/meetups/6388-intro-to-programming-using-python-part-1-of-2.

Looking forward to seeing you!

    Just wanted to say a BIG thank you to you all for last night. I am so excited about learning some coding.... all of your enthusiasm has definitely rubbed off on me! I really am a complete beginner, so I especially wanted to say how great your volunteers were, particularly the two who helped and encouraged me! They were great teachers - patient, motivating, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, in fact everything a great teacher should be! And for all of you to do this voluntarily is amazing.

    Thank you all for being AWESOME and see you next week :)

    Hi Everyone, you will notice that after each class, we will be updating people's RSVP as "No Show" if they did not turn up for the class. This will help us with prioritizing people who gets in to future classes, especially in cases where there is a huge waiting list.
