Event Details

Friday April 29th 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM - come with your laptop to get your development environment set up. There will be people on hand to assist or answer questions and make sure you're ready with everything you'll need to start learning Python on Saturday morning. If you can't make Friday, please follow http://pystar.org/setup_machine.html at home before Saturday morning.

Saturday April 30th 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM - LEARN LOTS OF PYTHON!

ATTENDEES:

Would you like to learn Python and Django in a non-alpha geek, friendly environment?  Come out to PyStar's first Bay Area workshop to get started learning this amazingly intuitive programming language.

These workshops are modeled after the RailsBridge "Ruby on Rails for Women" courses and are targeted at women who are new to programming, or new to Python.  All skill levels & interests welcome. The classes are led by volunteers and group size will depend on the amount of those we get.

Once you're signed up we'll get in touch to find out more about your current skill set in order to try and place you in a group of your peers for optimal learning.

This course is aimed at women so if you do not identify as such we ask that you try to find a woman to bring you as a guest.  Please feel free to get in touch if you have questions.

VOLUNTEERS:

If you are interested in volunteering please select the volunteer ticket type.  I will get in touch to set up a pre-workshop introdction of some sort and to get a sense of what you feel comfortable teaching or assisting with.

We'll need:

* Teachers who can explain basic Python & Django as well as git

* Assistants - if you're not sure that you are ready to teach, assisting students while they work through the curriculum is a good place to start

* Setup/Strike & General help: elevator greeters, help with getting groups in the right places, if you just want to be there and be helpful we want you - maybe you'll even feel up to trying the programming :)

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.

The workshop times are:

Friday April 29th 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm come with your laptop and get it set up for Saturday.  If you want to do this at home, follow http://pystar.org/setup_machine.html and make sure it all works. We really want everyone to be at the same starting point (development environment-wise) on Saturday morning.

Saturday April 30th 9:00 am - 4:00 pm is the workshop itself where people will go into groups to learn the curriculum.  The groups are loosely based on interest and prior programming skills so if you haven't yet, please email the organizer (me) through the event page and let me know your skill level and what you're hoping to get out of this class.

See you next weekend!
