PyKC Coffee & Code

We're at Alight Analytics again this month! There is a free city parking lot behind the building on Main St. The lot next to the building is metered and failing to pay can result in a $27 fine. The entrance is on Walnut and has a black awning. Take the elevator to the third floor. Coffee will be provided.

Come work on Python projects, get programming help, help others, and hang out. Bring your own project or work on one of the suggested projects below. We'll have members available to help beginning Python programmers with language basics and practice. Don't forget your laptop!

Audience: Everyone! We'll have something for all Python experience levels.

Things to bring: a wireless-enabled laptop and power cord.

Sessions On Demand (SOD): These demand-based sessions will have facilitators available.

Beginners Boostrap: Just getting started with Python? We'll help you get everything you need to learn Python installed on your computer. Here are some good resources for learning Python:

The official Python tutorial:

Think Python: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist:

An introduction to Python through writing games:

Python coding exercises:

Django Jam: A session for discussing all things Django.

Tools & Tips: A session about the practical aspects of Python programming. Editor or IDE? MySQL, PostgreSQL or NoSQL? virtualenv or virtual machine?

Build Your Own Session (BYOS): Don't like any of these sessions? How about facilitating one of your own? It's always nice to hear new voices and viewpoints.

    Forgot to mention this and thought it would be worth-while since Flask was brought up.

      Yeah, I got the early release on this one, too. It's a good book.

      Agreed. We'll probably avoid the River Market on Saturdays, in the future!

    Hey - I am in town and may still be in town for this. I'd love to come by. How big of a space do you need? Do you also need refreshments?
