Workshop: Python Intro for Beginners
Are you a beginner (new to programming) who wants to learn Python? Then this workshop is for you! || Gather and Setup 5:00 - 5:30 || Doors should be open by 5:00. If you haven't set up Python on your machine or are having challenges, this would be a good time to stop by. Python 3 is recommended for the workshop. || Workshop 5:30 - 7:00ish || We'll walk through a number exercises aimed at introducing setting up Python, basics of programing with the language and provide resources to learn more. || Things to Know || Bring a fully-charged laptop. This will be our first time in the space and are not sure what the outlet situation will be. Please work to have Python setup on your machine. For data science and analysis folks, we recommend installing Python 3.6 from Anaconda: For all other Python uses, we recommend following this guide, which covers installing Python for all sorts of operating systems: If you need help, please come to the workshop a little early and I'll try to help get you set up. || Location || We’ll be in Community Room 1 in the Downtown Central branch of the Milwaukee Public Library. The room is a slight right when you walk in the main Wisconsin street entrance. If you need help finding the room, ask a librarian...they're super friendly and helpful. Plenty of street parking is typically available.

    What we're about

    Hello MKE and beyond!!

    This group welcomes anyone of any skill level and background who has an interest in Python development.

    One of the most wonderfully surprising things about Python, beyond the awesomeness of the language itself, is the great global Python community. Whether you're a hobbyist or a professional, this group is about building a local MKE Python community and a bridge to the broader Python community. We're here to help each other grow and connect in a fun, low-key, welcoming environment. We are also a bridge to the broader regional, national, and global Python communities for those interested in plugging in.

    We're always looking for speakers and venues to host either talks or workshops.

    We're also always interested in sponsors. If you're a company looking to build a connection to the MKE developer community, please reach out.

    Our meetups primary focuses are:

    1) Introduction and Help getting started with Python: Installation, Coding Basics for all skill levels, Coding for entrepreneurs, Coding for kids, Building your First project, or Solving that annoying thing that should just work.

    2) Data Science: Pandas, Matplotlib, Scikit-Learn, Juypter, Anaconda, Dask, TensorFlow, Keras, etc.

    3) Web Development: Django, Flask, Tornado, etc.

    4) Anything and Everything Else Python:

    • DevTools: PyTest, PyCharm, pip packaging

    • DevOps and Infrastructure: Ansible, Fabric, etc.

    • IOT: MicroPython, Zerynth, etc.
