Hi Jeffrey,

Thanks for reaching out! Please put 'Python Q&A Sessions' into the schedule
for Class-A-Thon in the month of August.  We will be testing curriculum
topics but have not arrived at a firm syllabus/schedule. Our goal is to
continue to build a team of people interested in learning Python together.





Cheers,
