I had sent this announcement to the SF-LUG list.  If any of y'all want to 
learn Python, then come to this!  It's been a consistent weekly Monday 
thing.  It's a little bit slow-paced, so oriented mostly at people without 
much programming experience.

I had sent an invitation about this to the NB-discuss list earlier, but 
now that I'm actually holding it at NB I figure y'all deserve another 
invitation!

Subject: [PYCLASS] NEW LOCATION! 12/8 Chapters 7 and 8

WHERE: Noisebridge (83C Weise St, near 16th & Mission BART) 
<http://noisebridge.net>
WHEN:  Mon Dec 8 6 PM
WHAT:  Community Python learning session: Chapter 7-8

TEXTBOOK INFO: http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/thinkpython.html
TEXTBOOK CHAP: http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/html/book008.html (and 
the next one)

This week, we focus on iteration, touching on Newton's Method for calculating 
square roots.  Exercise 4 is what Alex did last week at my urging, writing a 
Python intereter.

Exercise 5 would be easier if you know about doctests.  (Don't be shy - feel 
free to ask!)

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.

KEEP TALKING

I invite you to email me your answers to the exercises, or to discuss on the 
list.

See some of you there!

-- Asheesh.

That secret you've been guarding, isn't.
