Since I am horrible at trying to talk thinks up, I will just copy in ChrisA’s description from the mailing list:
“This is outright theft of the hacklab.to “Python Newbie Night” event. One night a week (Wed. @7pm) we get together with electronic copies of “think python”, talk about a chapter, then write some code. We may skip around depending on the skill levels of those who are present. If the class format takes off we can do other languages as well (say java and C++). I would like to invite non-coders and non-members to the class, so tell your friends and relatives!” -ChrisA
So this Wednesday, September 9, 2009, we are having our first Python learning night at the Hive. Bring yourself, a laptop and a friend.
Every week we get together to share project progress and deal with the business matters for the space. Every so often a special guest shows up to demo something really cool that they have been working on. That happened at the last meeting when Joe stopped by to show off his Sketchduino. He has taken an Etch-a-Sketch and paired it with an Arduino and a laptop to draw any image. He gave a demo using one of our logos. Check out the YouTube video of the demo!
This week we will be finalizing plans for our trip to Mendelson this coming weekend, and hearing status updates on various projects, including Dave’s progress with the MakerBot.
The space will be open for people to come on down and hang out with us for the meeting. If you want to stop on by, please park out on the street. If there is nobody out front then walk around back to the loading dock, the door should be open. Walk in the back door, take the first door on your right and we are the double doors on the end.
