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).
IF YOU ARE NEW
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
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
the sf-lug list.
See some of you there!
You single-handedly fought your way into this hopeless mess.
