TEXTBOOK CHAP: http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/html/book008.html
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.
I invite you to email me your answers to the exercises, or to discuss on
See some of you there!
