PyATL Jam Session (In-town)

What's a Jam Session?

Jam Session meetings are intended to be hands-on, collaborative experiences with your fellow PyATL members. We'll be meeting from 7pm to 11pm to work together on whatever projects you feel like. Bring your own hobby projects, bring a work project, bring your new startup idea - whatever you like. Or, if you don't have a project of your own, come along and see what projects others are working on and sit down with them to help them out! Programmers of all experience levels are welcome! JR Rickerson will be there a bit early to help introduce people, organize, and make sure everyone is comfortable.

We recommend bringing a laptop with Python installed so you can join in the fun!

Each month we'll typically start with a warm-up of some kind we can do fairly quickly as a group.  Since we've done most of the simpler Python Challenge puzzles, I'm going to try putting together a short Code Kata for each warm-up instead.  If you're unfamiliar with Code Katas, you can read about them here:

After the warm-up we may work on a group collaborative project, go through a tutorial together, or just start into whatever discussion that comes up.

You can also work on projects on your own or in small groups if you'd prefer that to the overall discussion / project, and feel free to ask questions or share your experiences with the group.

Materials for each jam session can be found in the PyATL GitHub repository:

Ideas for project tutorials or collaborative projects can be found on our Google Spreadsheet here:

    My first meetup was awesome and inspiring to me as a beginner in Python!

    Sorry I missed out on this one! Working on a deadline, is there somewhere I can find notes about the meeting?

    I'm just starting out. Will anyone be able to help me download and install Python and Flask on my laptop? I have a project that I wanted to get set up by the end of the year.

      Ms. Taylor - we'll be doing exercises that you'll need Python installed to participate in, but if you don't mind missing some of the exercises I think we will probably be able to spare someone to help you install those tools.

      It looks like it has been fixed. At least, it worked for me just now, both your link and the one n the description.

      I did fix it, thank you for pointing it out!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
