Saturday Study Group

UCSD Geisel Library

Our study group is for everyone on their Python journey, whether you're just starting out, an experienced pro, or anywhere in between. There's no formal instruction, just a bunch of folks who like to code. (If you're new to Python, check out these handy resources (http://pythonsd.org/pages/getting-started.html)!) We have a great time, come join us! Bring your laptop and any questions you have about Python. Free feel to show up at any time and stay as long as you want. Hope to see you there! Python Community Code of Conduct (http://www.pythonsd.org/pages/code-of-conduct.html): Python is much more than a software language. Python is a vibrant community made up of members from around the globe with a diverse set of skills, personalities, and experiences. It is through these differences that our community experiences great successes and continued growth. Overall, we're good to each other. We contribute to this community not because we have to, but because we want to.
