Let's get together to discuss Django web development, and Python in Perth! Or else join the online community on Slack (http://slack.pdpd.com.au)! Our topics cover everything from the latest developments in web technologies to using Python for hardware hacking. All skill levels are welcome and there's always time for catching up and networking before and after the talks.
Learn Python through building an application for pulling cheap fuel prices from FuelWatch. We got people going through week 1-4 and others going through 5-8.
I intend to run this workshop every week on Monday at 6:00pm for 2 hours costing $10 for each session. However it will help with cost and regularity if payment is for 4 weeks upfront at least ($40). Payment methods would be through bank transfer or PayID. Please private message me of your payment preference ASAP.
I will honour full refunds if you decide to pull out before the event or if we don't have the numbers. Partial refunds if you have attended 1 or more.
This event can be cancelled if we don't get the numbers but you can always pick the other more populous day. Currently I need at least 5 paying members. Please let me know ASAP so I can book the venue.

This course is very hands-on and is written for 10 weeks (but will probably take longer). Have a look at what each week will look like at https://github.com/robinchew/workshop_notes or see past meetup events. I ran these workshops in 2018 and it was fun teaching and seeing people learning from each other. I'm sure everyone will get something out of it.
Week 1 - Install Python, import libraries
Week 2 - Datastructures to represent fuel data
Week 3 - String manipulation for creating a HTML page
Week 4 - Manage your code with Git
Week 5 - Refactor your code to be more 'Pythonic'
Week 6 - Run your app on the Flask web server
Week 7 - Host your app publicly with Heroku
Week 8 - Expand on your product
Come join the Slack #workshop channel at http://slack.pdpd.com.au, and talk to me and some past participants, this will also be the place to ask questions if you feel left behind.
In 2020, I would like to run the workshop similar to 2018, except not lose money this time. What you should end up with is a practical product and hopefully some programming skills to expand on the product or create a completely new one, perhaps for your business.
Here are some examples built by past workshoppers (these sites take time to load because of free hosting):
