Monday Python Flying Circus (Python Peer Mentoring Night )

Join us for an evening of Python! Come to Learn and/or share your existing knowledge with others.

Special Breakout Session by Alex Chamberlain from Puppet Labs: New Coders - What Kinds of Positions Your New Skills May Qualify You for, What to Expect in Your New Career.

Set aside one night a week to become a better developer, pick up new skills, and get help with your projects and learning. We'll have mentors on hand and a community of other learners to meet and work with.

Our event is beginner friendly, we can help get you started with programing, support your online learning, or just talk about where you are at and what comes next.

Bring your laptop, and something you want to learn, try, build or share.

    Not what I thought Python Mentoring was to be about. I am sure that the talk was useful to some (many?) attendees, but Peer Mentoring it was not. I suggest a clear statement of the the agenda and schedule for future meetings would be appropriate.

      Thanks for the feedback! And Sorry I wasn't more accurate in my description. The event listed a special breakout session talk by Alex. Normally we do introductions and break off into groups, but sometimes we have a speaker. This particular speaker generated a lot of interest so we spent longer with it and didn't separate into two rooms, as we normally would. Give us a try next week- I bet you'll find the format more to your liking.

    Wonderful meeting again! I loved the talk by Alex from Puppet Labs. Tons of useful information for those of us new to programming and I'd imagine for those experienced programmers looking for a change.

    I would like to learn how to use Python packages without having them installed by the System Administrator. I would like to tar up my scripts and know they will work at any customer site.

      You have to go a bit further that a simple tar file to deliver a properly-installable Python package. As a first toe in the water, however, read up on the PYTHONPATH environment variable, untar the package into a writable directory you have added to PYTHONPATH, and import away!
