WHEN: Mon Jan 26 6:30 PM
WHAT: Community Python learning session: Chapter 11
TEXTBOOK INFO: http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/thinkpython.html
TEXTBOOK CHAP: http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/html/book012.html
This week, we look dictionaries, a really interesting data type. This is
the first long chapter on a data type, so pay attention. They're quite fun
IF YOU ARE NEW
If you are new, *read Chapter 11* and work forward in the text, starting
with chapter 1. Focus on the exercises for Chapter 11 so that we can have
a coherent conversation in class, and feel free to ask me questions about
WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?
A bunch of SF-LUG people have been learning an introduction to
programming, and I've been facilitating. My expectation is to have a fun
conversation with people who have mostly read the chapter, and some of
whom (hopefully all!) have done the chapter's exercises.
WHAT'S THE LOCATION?
Noisebridge is a "hacker space" where people gather to discuss technology
and art or build things. It's a member-supported non-profit, and I think
you'll think it's pretty cool. Read https://www.noisebridge.net/.
I invite you to email me your answers to the exercises, or to discuss on
the sf-lug list.
See some of you there!
Your depth of comprehension may tend to make you lax in worldly ways.
