This workshop will teach everyone the basics of the Python programming language. We cover the basics of how one constructs a program from a series of simple instructions in Python.
The course has no pre-requisites and avoids all but the simplest mathematics. Anyone with moderate computer experience should be able to master the materials in this course. We'll cover a large amount of the basics during the first portion of the workshop and prepare you for an actual project that you'll be coding yourself at the end.
Please bring your own laptop - a phone or iPad will not be sufficient to follow along with the course. If you do not have a laptop we will attempt to find one for you but cannot promise we will have the resources to provide one for everyone.
Several days before coming to the workshop please RSVP for this event and check your email for a message from meetup and instructions on how set up your laptop prior to the workshop. If you get stuck, please come promptly at 2pm or a little earlier for help finishing this process.
Pizza will be provided by our host, Microsoft.
If you have any questions, hop into the Redmond Python Slack community and ask away here - tiny.cc/joinredpy
All attendees will be expected to follow the Python Software Foundation code of conduct: https://www.python.org/psf/codeofconduct/
