You've started the Codecademy and Coursera courses; you've thumbed through Zed Shaw's "Learn Python the Hard Way"; and now you're itching to see what Python can help you do. This is the workshop for you!
Here's the breakdown: we're going to be taking you on a whirlwind tour of Python's capabilities. By the end of the workshop, you should be able to easily follow any of the widely available Python courses on the internet, and have a grasp on some of the more complex aspects of the language.
Please don't forget to bring your personal laptop!
Audience: This course is aimed at those who already have some basic programming experience, either in Python or in another high level programming language (such as C/C++, Fortran, Java, Ruby, Perl, or Visual Basic). If you're an absolute beginner -- new to Python, and new to programming in general -- make sure to check out the "Python 101" workshop!
