PyStar Philly: Introduction to Python for women and their friends
Saturday, June 18, 2011 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
Would you like to learn Python in a friendly environment? Come out to the inaugural PyStar Philly on JUNE 18 (9am - 4pm) 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.
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 female identified folks; if you do not identify as such you are welcome to come if you are the guest of a female identified person. Please feel free to get in touch if you have questions.
You will need:
* A laptop running Windows XP or later, Mac OS X 10.5 or greater, Linux or BSD.
* Please set up your laptop with the required software: http://pystar.org/setup_machine.html
If you are interested in volunteering please select the volunteer ticket type. We will get in touch to set up a pre-workshop introduction of some sort and to get a sense of what you feel comfortable teaching or assisting with.
* 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
