(Thanks to the new folks who joined a few weeks ago; it's great to have 
new people around!)

WHERE: Noisebridge (83C Weise St, near 16th & Mission BART)
WHEN:  Mon Feb 9 6:30 PM
WHAT:  Community Python learning session: Chapter 13

TEXTBOOK INFO: http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/thinkpython.html
TEXTBOOK CHAP: http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/html/book014.html

This week, we look at dat structure selection. This is the part where things 
get really interesting: we know enough to actually make interesting choices! We 
even get to generate pseudo-English with a technique called Markov analysis.


Remember that the point of the class is to help you answer questions you have. 
To that end, *read Chapter 13* so that you can make sense of the general class 

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 (since that's where this all started).

See some of you there!
