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.
WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?
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.
WHAT'S THE LOCATION?
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!
Q: What do you call a boomerang that doesn't come back?
A: A stick.
