**At the event:**
I want to help people with different experience levels the best way possible.
That’s why I created an overview to help you figure out what you should do at the event, depending on your experience. What step sounds like the best starting point for you?

*Step 1: Learn the basics of Python =>*
- Don’t know yet how to write code on your laptop? Here are 3 suggestions, all free:
--- The quickest way (online): Just visit https://repl.it/languages/python3 and start coding
--- Offline: download & install Visual Studio Code (https://code.visualstudio.com/, recommended, with a lot of helpful plugins that save a ton of time), Atom (https://atom.io/packages/atom-ide-ui) or PyCharm (https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/download/)
- >> Learning resources for you, try out and see what you prefer:
--- Udacity online course (free): Programming Foundations with Python https://hskl.me/w0g6
--- YouTube video tutorial (free): Learn Python - Full Course for Beginners https://hskl.me/kbrq
--- YouTube video tutorial (free): Intro to Data Science - Crash Course for Beginners https://hskl.me/unhv
--- More content for beginners (free & paid): https://beta.heyskill.me/search?q=Python&&Highlights=For%20beginner

*Step 2: Play around with mini project examples, to get more comfortable with Python =>*
See what you like most:
- 'Automate the Boring stuff' book
--- free online version: https://automatetheboringstuff.com/
--- paid print & ebook: https://hskl.me/dy4k
- Code Club Modules for Python: https://codeclubprojects.org/en-GB/python/

*Step 3: Plan & build a concrete project, that matters to you:*
- Example projects Python is awesome for:
--- Data science - analyze datasets
--- Automating tasks on your computer
--- Build a website (with Django or Flask as a backend)
--- Build a quiz game
--- Analyze data from APIs of other websites (YouTube, Meetup, Google Maps, Twitter, Buffer, Google Vision AI, etc.)
--- Machine learning
- Projects for inspiration: Glitch.com or search via Google

*Step 4: Help others learning Python - ask around who needs help.*

===========

>> Safe Space Policy:<<
You deserve events where you feel welcomed and relaxed - not judged by others, not harassed and not mansplained by anyone. That counts regardless of your gender, sexual orientation, age, religion or outfit.
To make sure everyone at our event has a great time just make sure you follow our one rule:
Be excellent to each other.
Or in other words: be nice, welcoming, and if you are a cis male, be conscious of not dominating conversations and don't mansplain (https://bit.ly/2JryoSu)

If anyone makes you feel uncomfortable - talk to that person. Or talk to one of the organizers in person or message me:
