Are you a Python beginner? Come and join our group study! We’ve been following the “Learn Python the Hard Way” free online tutorial by Zed Shaw, a very popular resource for complete beginners. We have assigned a set of lessons for each week, which you should work with during the week preceding the group’s meet up. Even if you couldn’t get started yet, come and get help on setting up your system, learn about the pros and cons of the most popular self learning resources, and work on anything Python you’d like!
Here is a link to Zed Shaw’s Python tutorial: http://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/
Here is an overview of the entire LPTHW program (you should have covered much of the material before each meetup to make the most of it):
Week 1: Exercises 1 – 17
Week 2: Exercises 18 – 33
Week 3: Exercises 34 – 45
Week 4: Exercises 46 – 52.
A huge thanks to Yahoo! for hosting us!! Someone needs to give you access to the building, so if you arrive late, please send us a message. If you intend to use public transportation, the VTA light rail that departs from Mountain View's Caltrain Station stops right by Yahoo's campus (Lockheed Martin stop).
