Python for beginners / Learn some python

Venue PRBB - Room : "Ramón y Cajal"

http://pybcn.org/venue.html
------------------------------------------------------

One main session to learn some Python:  

"Execution model and other must-know's for Python newcomers (Duration 40min)"

by Pablo Enfedaque Vida


Followed by 6 Lightning-Talks: 

1) The Zen of Python http://legacy.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0020/ It's simple, short and fun, and a good way to introduce the Python philosophy to beginners.
by David Arcos

2) Virtualenv and pip. A quick intro of setting up the virtualenv, activating it and installing/uninstalling packages. If it fits I would install two different versions of the same package in separate virtualenvs to illustrate why they are useful.
by Alex Maneu

3) List comprehensions
by Jordi Gomez Bao

4) Métodos mágicos en python: Como sacar partido de los magic methods de python en un ejemplo simple.by Nacho Gentile

5) Python 2 vs. Python 3
by Pablo Enfedaque Vidal


6) Where to find help for Python
by Aleta Dunne

    Muchas gracias por vuestros comentarios y sobretodo muchas gracias a los speakers! Aunque creo que el título "Todo lo que no hubieras querido aprender a palos" hubiera sido más adecuado para la charla de ayer. Beginners, empezáis con el saber que dan los años de experiencia! Aprovechadlo!

    Thanks for the enthusiasm about the next meetup `Python for Beginners`.

    As you can see there are already 85 people attending the meetup, we would appreciate it if you could update your status to "No" if you are not planning on attending, that way others can attend the event.

    Thanks for your collaboration!

    Buenas. Soy recien llegado por partida triple (Barcelona, Python, Meetup.com), por lo que creo, disfrutaré aprendiendo/escuchando (de momento)

    Un saludo

    Fins ara m'han agradat molt les xerrades a les que he anat (de moment només 2, i no m'he pogut quedar a les cerveses per manca de temps).
    Estic desitjant veure que més puc aprendre sobre Python :)

    I enjoyed Python Web Frameworks yesterday. I'm new to Python, so I won't miss it! :-)

  • javier a.

    Maybe for beginners would be nice... I gave a talk on BCN DevCon about Python from a Java developer perspective... if there is interest...

    The slides are here:

    Hola,
    Si todavía faltan speakers podría hacer una mini-charla de como conectar Python con una base de datos (poniendo como ejemplo MySQL). Sino podría dar algo en la sesión Python + Databases.
    Saludos!
