Python Office Hours

This originally started out as a study group for people working through the same online course. But you don't have to be taking an online course to come to office hours. Perhaps you are curious about programming, or curious about python. Perhaps you have something you want to build and know that python can help.

This is a chance for people to get together for moral support, project assistance, and homework assistance. We’ll have an experienced python developer or two on hand to help answer questions and explain difficult concepts. This is an “office hours” event with volunteer teaching assistants. For students, the expectation is that you watch lectures, read tutorials and attempt homework on your own, then use this as a resource to aid in learning. For people who may not be students but have ideas for projects, the expectation is that you can bounce ideas off of other people in the group for review, and get help with any python bits along the way. If you don't have a project, or aren't taking a class, but are just curious about python, or maybe even about programming in general, then we might be able to help by giving you a starting point to explore.

    Just a reminder that Python Office Hours is tonight!

    I'm going to be in a study mode preparing for the sprint, so I would like more people to show up to help since I'll be a little distracted with it.

    I started talking to the project owner about sprint plans, and he said:

    "Our current stack is Flask, MongoDB, jQuery, ember.js, Mako templates, probably Celery and RabbitMQ, and likely Fabric for deployment. If you don't know those, it would be best to briefly acquaint yourself with those technologies."

    My goal is to acquaint myself with all of those as well as work out a way to get people able to dive in to a sprint right away at pycon. This is the first sprint I am helping with and I'm very excited!

    I am hoping we can put together a great file for the issue of hacking with python and github in windows.
