Diving into python

Last night we held our first Python night, where I gave an introductory course into Python. We had a strong showing of both members and non-members who were eager to learn, and we were able to hammer through the basics in about an hour.

Next week we'll be doing a quick re-cap of the basics, and continue diving into the depths of the language. Current agenda includes object-oriented programming and handling exceptions. I'm also going to cook up some exercises for attendees to work on so we can flex our editors and interpreters.

If you missed this week's class and are new to the language, the course is essentially a modified version of the (free! online!) book Dive into Python. We covered the first four chapters last night. Feel free to read up, and if you get stuck--bring your questions next week!
