Workshop: Introduction to programming with python

After running this workshop successfully twice in Berlin and more often in Melbourne and Stockholm, it is about time it is offered to the people of Tel-Aviv to get them started in programming using Python - no prior knowledge required. So if you are interested to learning programming hands-on and with amazing coaches around, using the great PythonTurtle workshop we've prepared for you, please sign up. And yes, it's free.

You will need to bring your own laptop in order to participate with a recent python (2.7) installed. If you have a recent Mac or Linux, this is pre-installed, you are covered. If you are running Windows, please let the organizers know in advance, so they can help you set it up.

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!

 

Though the event is full already, please subscribe to the waiting list. We are currently trying to secure a bigger venue and then we can raise the amount of learners, who can join.

    Any recommendations re. parking? :)

    1 · June 14, 2013

    • Benjamin K.

      There is no dedicated parking. But there is a huge commercial area nearby which I suspect to be empty on a saturday so I assume parking isn't much of an issue.

    maybe you can host the meeting in different place so more people will have a chance to enjoy this workshop

    1 · June 14, 2013

    • liblib

      just saw that this workshop is for people with no coding experience i'd love to join a workshop from c# or C++ or java or... to python :)

      1 · June 15, 2013

    • Benjamin K.

      If you already have coding experience learning python isn't that hard and there is very little to actual to learn other than working in the language and its syntax imho. The best guide for that is http://docs.python-gu...­ right now and every coder should be able to self-learn python with that without any workshop needed.

      June 15, 2013

  • Dan

    Could you lie stream it or record and post it afterwards?

    June 14, 2013

    • Benjamin K.

      There won't be any talk or presentation, but just learners working through the material themselves - this one btw.: http://opentechschool...­ - so there is really nothing to stream ...

      June 14, 2013

  • Zvi S.

    I will not be able to attend the meeting. I was not able to exclude myself since the RSVP button is not there.
    I'm confirmed + 1 so 2 places will be available.

    June 14, 2013

    • yael

      Will be more than happy to take your spots!

      June 14, 2013

  • lena

    I received a mail that I am confirmed but when I entered the link it sent me to the waiting list. Can you please confirm if I can join the class

    June 12, 2013

    • Benjamin K.

      You are confirmed - as you can see in the list on the right :-)

      June 12, 2013

  • Yossi C.

    please inform when there are other meetings I'll skip this one

    June 12, 2013

    • Benjamin K.

      of course. just make sure you have notifications for this group set up properly and you'll receive them.

      June 12, 2013

  • Yossi C.

    the workshop just include the turtle staff? I just started using python this week but this seems a bit simplistic. any other stuff or other workshop oriented toward non-python programmers?

    June 12, 2013

    • Benjamin K.

      Hi Yossi,

      June 12, 2013

    • Benjamin K.

      This workshop focusses on introducing the main concepts of programming to people without any prior coding knowledge and uses the turtle module to do that. There are other workshops focussing on other aspekts, like web-development with django or flask or how to do data processing but this one will talk only about basic ideas of programming.

  • Nava L.

    Hi, I have Win 7 - 32 bit, though I think I have 2.7 Python already installed (from studying with my son "invent with python").

    June 11, 2013

    • Benjamin K.

      could you open a terminal and type in 'python --version' and press enter? If it says something with "Python 2.7...' you are good. Otherwise you need to upgrade your installation as said before...

      June 12, 2013

  • Ori F.

    Just wondering about the Windows installations - did you consider using PythonAnywhere or a similar web based python environment?

    June 10, 2013

    • Benjamin K.

      Hi Ori, as mentioned before, it is required to have it run as a local installation. For details this is because the curriculum currently uses the Turtle library, which runs on the Tinker-UI-Framework and does not run in browsers.

    I have mac book air from 2011.

    • Benjamin K.

      could you open a terminal and type in 'python --version' and press enter? If it says something with "Python 2.7...' you are good. Otherwise you need to upgrade your computer...

    • Yehuda

      yes. it is 2.7.1

    why on Shabbat?

    1 · June 10, 2013

    • Benjamin K.

      These events rise and fall with coaches and their availability. So the way we choose the date is by asking the coaches with a Doodle and this date was the one when most were available.

      June 10, 2013

  • Tzahi

    I have win7 64bit

    June 10, 2013

    • Benjamin K.

      Alright. Please download and installhttp://www.python.org...­ and configure it as stated here: http://docs.python.or...­ - if after restarting your commandline the commmand "python" still doesn't work, please come half an hour earlier and let one of the coaches know, so we can fix your setup.
