Weekend hands-on Python workshop for beginners
For our May’s Project Night, we are going to do something super special for the beginners in our community. We are partnering with Holberton School (https://www.holbertonschool.com/) to offer a weekend-long hands-on Python workshop for the beginners! Feel free to forward this special event to people that you think can benefit! During the weekend workshop, you will learn the basics of Python and programming. Print strings, use variables, conditions and loops and publish your work to Github. Everything will be done using the Linux distribution Ubuntu, so you’ll also learn some command line skills. For those who are fast learners, the staff at Holberton School will have advanced tasks for you, so expect to be challenged! Space is limited. You MUST register on tito to attend, not Meetup. (https://ti.to/sf-python/Hands-on-Python-workshop-for-beginners) What to expect: a weekend to understand the fundamentals of Python with a collaborative hands on workshop in Bay Area’s leading coding School. When: 9am to 6pm Saturday June 2 and Sunday June 3. Where: San Francisco, Yerba Buena area. Location in the tito registration link below. Who is this for: anyone who wants to learn Python and has an interest in becoming a full-stack developer. Max number of students: 30. Act soon! Once the slots are filled, they are filled. Cost: $30 per participant. The ticket is non-refundable, all proceeds will go to SF Python to expand our activities and community. The number of seats is limited to 30. Your completed registration with our ticketing partner https://ti.to/sf-python/Hands-on-Python-workshop-for-beginners will confirm your seat. Act soon! Once the slots are filled, they are filled. About SF Python: SF Python is run by volunteers aiming to foster the Python community and ecosystems in the SF Bay Area. Check out our flagship event PyBay2018 (https://pybay.com), the 3rd Annual Regional Python Conference this August 16-19.

What we're about

SF Python is your opportunity to grow your technical career by learning and sharing what you know with other local Python developers!

• If you'd like to submit a 25 or 40 mins talk, please do so via PyBay's CFP (https://pybay.com/cfp) process. CFP closes April 21, 2018

• If you'd like to submit a 5 mins lightning talk or 10-15 mins short talk, please use this form (https://goo.gl/forms/FtJ45W6bECGnLZQx1).

• If you'd like to sponsor our events, please start here (https://goo.gl/forms/QyYOOxSVFj3zHnaI3).

Organized by a handful of volunteers with the help of some faithful sponsors and your generous donations, we host about 20 events a year:

2 monthly meetups (http://sfpythonmeetup.com/)

- Presentation Night on the 2nd Wednesday of each month features intermediate to advanced level tech talks from Python Software Foundation members, core developers of open-source projects, and local software engineers.

- Project Night on the 3rd Wednesday of most months offers a chill evening to hack on projects, get questions answered, mentor other devs, or attend a tutorial. It's usually held at various companies in SF so you get to sample how different companies are using Python.

.PyBay, a yearly regional Python Conference (http://pybay.com/)

PyBay is the local version of PyCon. You can save on travel costs and still have an experience of the conference that serious python developers aspire to attend. PyBay is a 3-day weekend conference in August featuring 40 talks and 400+ attendees.

An annual holiday party (http://bayareapython.com/)

We think you'd agree that if you have been coming to SF Python's events, you have been advancing in your field. So come celebrate the year with us. We will listen to more amazing speakers while enjoying great food and drinks. Who knows, if we continue to get lucky, we will have more amazing entertainers to help us celebrate the year.

Why do we put these events up?

We believe there is power in in-person interactions. We believe in learning, sharing, and helping each other out. And we have seen the results. We have heard stories of people getting their problems solved because of the talks and the people they met at our events. We have witnessed people grow in their career, from receiving their first internship to landing their first speaking gig at conferences. We have even heard companies migrating to a different platform/technologies after attending our conference.

We look forward to your joining this awesome community - be it attending our events, giving a talk (https://goo.gl/forms/jOWUwI2R2ENvzCIr1), being a sponsor or supporting us financially!
