WHERE: Noisebridge (83C Weise St, near 16th & Mission BART)
WHEN:  Mon Feb 2 6:30 PM
WHAT:  Community Python learning session: Chapter 12

TEXTBOOK INFO: http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/thinkpython.html
TEXTBOOK CHAP: http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/html/book013.html

This week, we look at tuples. We also learn about a classic 
Python idiom, Decorate-Sort-Undecorate (and in class I will 
show you the super-new way to write that even faster).


Remember that the point of the class is to help you answer questions you 
have. To that end, *read Chapter 12* so that you can make sense of the 
general class discussion.

In addition, work forward in the text starting with chapter 1. I *urge* 
you to send me your exercises for any chapters; I can provide good 
feedback. 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 
earlier material.


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.


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!
