    Learn about the import statement, and how modules and packages work in Python, allowing you to incorporate the work of so many smart people into yours. How to write your own modules, so you yourself can reuse and repurpose. How to use the Standard Library. How to install packages from the huge Python repository called PyPI. Virtual environments, and more. This should be an eye opener!

  • Show Off Your Well-Trained List - Learn Python #6

    City of Fairfax Regional Library

    We didn't get to finish our first list training session - so much to do! So we'll continue where we left off, and cover sorting, tuples, even those fiendish list comprehensions. Some cool examples. Come one, come all, Python beckons!

  • How to Train Your List - Learn Python #5

    City of Fairfax Regional Library

    Let's continue where we left off - and instead of a dragon, we'll cover the magical list in Python. Along with for loops and lots of tips and things we can do with lists.

    The library seems to be getting booked a lot more - so that's why the long delay from last week. Working hard to get the live streaming working so we can accomplish a lot more.

    Check out https://CodeCachet.org for slides from our last meeting on Python control structures. There is even a homework assignment!

    See you at our next meetup - IRL or online, I'll let you know.

    Note: the next meeting in the library is in Room 214, not where we were before.
