A lightning talk... • ... is a 5-minute talk on any topic (as long as its not a marketing pitch.) • ... can be given by anyone, even someone totally new to Python! (Share your experiences learning Python!) • ... often about something cool you just learnt or some open source software you wrote. • ... but doesn't need slides and doesn't even need to be prepared! • ... but doesn't even need to be about Python or about something technical (as long as its not a pitch)! Sign-up to speak here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ksh2ZW9i6OwSLYDMHqk8wkd-9eF2mmMomWwkkX4-ec4/edit#gid=0 Need an idea for a talk? The above spreadsheet includes talk ideas! Want to see someone give a talk on a specific topic? Add a request to the spreadsheet above! Want to give a talk? Jessica Garson has written up some great advice on how to prepare and make the most of it! See it here! https://dev.to/jessicagarson/how-giving-lightning-talks-helped-me-gain-technical-confidence--2omm Doors open at 6:00; event ends at 8:30. You must be on the RSVP list to attend. We'll be in rooms #6203 and #6202, called Belasco and Ambassador on the sixth floor. Coffee and tea provided, and pizza and sodas will be sponsored by Apex Systems.

  • Event Night: Code Spelling Bee
    This Thursday, NYC Python will be hosting its first code spelling bee! What is a code spelling bee? It's a competition in which you can show that you're the baddest coder around! Here's how it works: · doors open at 6:00 PM · we'll get started at 6:30 PM · competitors will be asked to identify themselves; not everyone has to compete; it's okay to just watch · the referee will select one programming problem · programming problems will range from the simple ("fizzbuzz") to the fiendish ("knight's tour") · competitors will take turns writing ONE line of code · competitors will dictate their line of code CHARACTER by CHARACTER (including whitespace and punctuation) · the referee will enter the line of code into a text editor · competitors can ask the referee about the problem and can ask the referee to run the code up to the point BEFORE the competitor has started their own line · competitors will NOT be able to see the screen when they write their line of code · competitors will be able to see the screen BEFORE and AFTER they are on stage · once a competitor returns to their seat, their turn is over · if a competitor's line of code results in a syntax error or otherwise un-runnable program, their line will be deleted and that competitor is OUT! · last person standing wins · we will send an NYC Python wide e-mail with the name of the winner (s) so that everyone will know: YOU'RE THE BEST! THE BEST! NO ONE'S GONNA EVER KEEP YOU DOWN! p-r-i-n-t-open paren-single quote-c-a-n-space-y-o-u-space-d-o-space-i-t-exclamation point-single quote-comma-single quote-capital g-o-o-d-space-l-u-c-k-exclamation point-single-quote-close paren
