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.
