Learn and practice Python basics
Here's the breakdown:
You'll need to bring a wireless-enabled laptop. (See the files page for more information on laptop setup, lecture material, and projects: http://www.meetup.com/PyLadies-ATX/files/)
Women and their friends who have no or limited programming experience. This event is welcoming and respectful of trans women. Men who want to learn Python are welcome as guests of women who are attending (please RSVP as well).
We'll set up your development environment and go over some fundamentals of computing and programming on Saturday morning, then spend a good chunk of the day on an introduction to Python, taking breaks to practice concepts through bite-sized lessons. In the afternoon we'll break out into groups to continue writing Python using specific practice exercises.
Our goal is to provide an environment in which women can develop their programming skills with confidence. You'll leave with the resources you need to continue your programming education on your own and with your fellow students. Our staff are predominantly women from the Austin programming and open source communities.
