For the first time in the US, the OpenTechSchool wants to offer its well-tried Introduction to Programming with Python (http://python.opentechschool.org/#python-beginners) workshop: An introduction to programming for absolute beginners. So if you're interested to getting introduced to programming with the great Python Turtle workshop we've prepared for you, please sign up. It's totally free.
You'll need to bring your own laptop in order to participate. If you have a recent Mac or Linux, you already have everything you need installed. If you're running Windows, please download and install Python Anaconda (http://www.continuum.io/downloads).
Because the number of seats is limited, it is important that you only sign up if you definitely plan on coming (and do so, too!). If you can't make it for any reason, please cancel your attendance on Meetup right away so your someone on the waiting list can take your place. Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you there!
