Introduction to Programming with Python

Python Next Wednesday 3/30/2011 at 7:00 PM Tony Johnson will be teaching an introduction to programming class with the Python language.   The course will cover the fundamentals of software development and act as a stepping stone to more advanced programming topics.

UPDATE:

1) You will need a laptop.
2) There is no cost to members or the general public.
3) You will need Python 3.2 installed on your computer.
Here is the link to download python: http://www.python.org/download/
4) Any simple text editor that is already installed on your OS will be sufficient.

    Does this class require membership? Is there a cost involved?

    Could someone record this with the Flip donated by Tim in the Red Emergency Documentation Box under the steps? I won’t be able to make it out on Wednesday.

    Classes are open to the public, generally there is a small fee (in the range of $10) however I am not 100% certain on this class’s cost. Members are generally free, unless there is a hardware kit involved (and with Python there won’t be).

    Some more info would be GREAT. I know a few people who want to come but we need more info.

    Like do we bring a laptop? or do you provide? What costs are there for members? non members? If we need to bring a laptop, should we have anything preloaded before we show up? Text editor? Compiler? If this truly is a beginners class, people may not know all this stuff or where to get it.

    Just to clarify.

    1) You will need a laptop.
    2) There is no cost to members or the general public.
    3) You will need Python 3.2 installed on your computer.

    4) Any simple text editor that is already installed on your OS will be sufficient.

    Also a $5 recommended donation for non-members would be appreciated to help us keep Pumping Station: One up and running.

    Is installing Python 3 going to wipe out my Python 2 install? Is there a recommended way to have both installed side-by-side?

    I had to work this week, but will this class be taught on a weekly basis?

    The nature and scope of future classes is still to be determined.
