Event Details

Hey Coders,

Come write Python code at Rackspace! We are working through Learn Python the Hard Way as a group. The book is available for free at http://learnpythonthehardway.org/book.

Each monthly meeting will begin with a short talk from a local developer about the cool stuff they do in Python. Then there will be instruction time covering that week's exercises. To wrap up we will work on some fun code katas to practice what we learned. What is a code kata? Glad you asked! 

"A code kata is an exercise in programming which helps a programmer hone their skills through practice and repetition. The term was probably first coined by Dave Thomas, co-author of the book The Pragmatic Programmer, in a bow to the Japanese concept of kata in the martial arts."

Our goal for this group is that by the end of the class you will be able to code your own awesome ideas and apps! You will also have a good foundation for practicing programming.

Exercise Schedule
