Are you looking for a fun challenge? Looking to improve your Python skills?
Haven't written Python before? You're in luck! We're hosting puzzle solving sessions for the 2018 Advent of Code!
AoC is a project created by Eric Wastl; each year during the month of December, puzzles are listed on the AoC website (https://adventofcode.com/). A new puzzle is listed each day of the month and requires code to solve (actually any language will work--but we especially love Python!). Puzzles are created for a variety of skill levels and are perfect for challenging yourself, others, or collaborating together to solve.
We'll be hosting these sessions on Sunday afternoons in December. This is a great opportunity to learn (or start learning Python!) and meet others, and work together. No prior Python or coding knowledge is required and help will be available as needed. If you've been coding for years, it's also a great opportunity to brush up on your skills and learn something new.
Our first session will be in the upper loft of Cafe 153 at Bridgestreet on Sunday, December 2nd at 1:00pm. Though the Meetup is listed from 1-2pm, we're willing to possibly go longer depending on interest and attendance. Please bring your own laptop to this Meetup. Wifi will be available in the cafe.
Hope to see you there!
