Python @Rackspace (Beginners)
Hey Coders, Come write Python code at Rackspace! We are learning about beginner Python topics. We have a list of references at the end of the description Each monthly meeting will begin with a quick overview of Python to make sure everyone is on the same page. Then there will be instruction and discussion on a Python topic. To wrap up, we will work through some code projects to practice what we learned. This Month's Topic TBD (check out the resources on https://nimbinatus.github.io/BeginnerCodersWWCATX/ ) If you are still getting started, please feel free to join us! We are a stress-free, fun group of people, all at different levels of experience. Please bring a computer and try to have Python 2 or Python 3 installed (a walkthrough can be found in exercise 0 of Learn Python the Hard Way [see Resources at the end of this description]). If you cannot figure it out, we will be happy to help you get started. Time We will begin at 6:45 pm. Come at 6:30 pm for meet and greet!
