Dear Noisebridgees,

My Python class continues. Even if you're totally new to Python or 
programming, please come.  (If you're *totally* new, try to get there on 
time or a little early!)

Subject: [PYCLASS] Jan 5 6:30 PM: Chapters 9 and 10

WHERE: Noisebridge (83C Weise St, near 16th & Mission BART)
WHEN:  Mon Jan 5 6:30 PM
WHAT:  Community Python learning session: Chapter 9-10

TEXTBOOK INFO: http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/thinkpython.html
TEXTBOOK CHAP: http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/html/book010.html (and 
the next one)

This week, we look at playing games with the English language using Python 
based on word list files.  Chapter 10 returns to the less exciting topic of 
lists, but this is our first foray into "mutable data", data that you can 
modify. A chapter 10 exercise one of the fundamental computer science 
algorithms, binary search.


A bunch of SF-LUG people have been learning an introduction to programming, and 
I've been facilitating.  My expectation is to have a fun conversation with 
people who have mostly read the chapter, and some of whom (hopefully all!) have 
done the chapter's exercises.


Noisebridge is a "hacker space" where people gather to discuss technology and 
art or build things.  It's a member-supported non-profit, and I think you'll 
think it's pretty cool.  Read https://www.noisebridge.net/.


I invite you to email me your answers to the exercises, or to discuss on the 

See some of you there!

-- Asheesh.
