    Rise. Thank for the heads up about the geeky girl python workshop next month. Is that workshop advertised on meetup.com somewhere?

      Hi Peter. Thanks for sharing your experience with this coder test website. Do you mind posting the URL here? Also please if you have a favorite challenge from that website, may be you could post it as well and others can join in and compare approaches next Saturday ? Thanks!

    Hi, everyone.

    This will be my first time attending this study group. I'm a statistics grad student looking to learn more about data analysis using Python, and found this particular resource: http://blog.yhathq.com/posts/data-science-in-python-tutorial.html

    I look forward to meeting everyone. Also, if there is anyway I can help the organizers with setting up, let me know.

      Hi Gonzalo,

      Thanks for sharing, interesting link! I won't be there this weekend but I will see you the following week if you are attending (I have similar interests).

      Hi Gonzalo, looking forward to meet you next time. I am also interested in scientific python. I have to leave now but the study group is still going strong with people likely to stay for some time. We are in the large room at the very end of the hallway on the right of the Pangea counter.
