      Jason, that's perfect, and I want to steal it. Albert, Jules, I'm going to (with Jason's approval, of course) steal this and make it the description. Anything anyone wants added/changed before I do?

      Of course that's why I posted it. When you get a chance if you see this first, check your messages on here :D

    code does not print correctly on here, but I'll post the intro Jupyter Notebook on our slack page, in the coding corner. [masked]. if you are not connected to that, send Jeff your e-mail from the Facebook page, on via Meetup messaging.

    don't be discouraged if a lot of this stuff does not make sense. if you are interested in diving into Python, come anyway and I'm sure we will be friendly. I think you will be impressed by how beginner friendly the language is and what can be done after just a few hours hacking away at it.

    Yes, We have secured a home! The Osterhout Library in downtown WB has agreed to host us any time the room is available. There is a screen and a projector available as well (free use of all). However, since short notice, not sure if we will get the projector for this Saturday. But thanks to Connie at Osterhout we officially have a home! :).

    Correction. Osterhout library, private room. They have a projector. See you all there. (Anaconda, worth the install)

    Location pending, but we're working on that. Consider installing Anaconda distribution - that's one exe to install on windows and it will give you both Python and Jupyter notebook. I'm going to facilitate a discussion of lists and then we can take it from there.
