The first Pyladies Toronto meetup will be held in a workshop style format. We'll become acquainted with the Python programming language, and with one another!
This is a brief description of what can be expected over the course of the meetup:
A brief introduction to the Python programming language:
What is used for? How does it differ from other programming languages? Why should we learn Python?
Python basics: Operators, variables, lists, control flow, strings, functions, and libraries.
This may sound intimidating now, but by the end of the meetup, I'm confident you'll leave with a better understanding of Python programming. We'll also discuss which resources are best for learning Python.
I am intent on making this organization's meetups worth your while.
We want to have fun, but we're getting together to learn something, and hopefully become very good at it. To this end, all of us will have to be super-disciplined, and come prepared to work hard.
1) Please make sure that you have installed Python on your operating system, prior to the meetup. For instructions on how to do this, see: http://www.python.org/getit/
2) Install a text editor: Text Wrangler is a good one for beginners- but if you prefer others, go for it.
Hope to see you there!
