TEXTBOOK CHAP: http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/html/book010.html
(and the next one)
This week, we look at playing games with the English language using Python
based on word list files. Chapter 10 returns to the less exciting topic
of lists, but this is our first foray into "mutable data", data that you
can modify. A chapter 10 exercise one of the fundamental computer science
algorithms, binary search.
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
See some of you there!
Q: What do you call a boomerang that doesn't come back?
A: A stick.
