You only have a vague intuition about Python being something else than a kind of snake or a British humorists group? You know Pythonistas who spoke to you with enthusiasm about their favorite programming language but you never really dived in because... well, yes... you know...

It's time for action!

Montréal-Python invites you to its basic introduction workshop to programming in Python in French. No specific knowledge is required, this workshop welcomes all newcomers.

At the end of this workshop, you'll have learn to:

  • explore by yourself Python's potential through experimentation and introspection in the interpretor
  • master the basic notions : types, fonctions, conditionnals, iterations...
  • write a script
  • import Python's power

Here's the full content of the workshop (in French).

The workshop will be:

  • Thursday, the 19th of September 2013
  • from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
  • room PK-R610 of UQAM Président-Kennedy building : 201, avenue du Président-Kennedy

Bring your laptop or pair up with someone else.

You'll need Python running on your computer. It's also recommended to have IPython installed.

Generally speaking, if you want to have fun with the code in Montréal-Python workshops without loosing your time with configuring your machine and if you want a guaranteed support by the technical assistants, do yourself a favor and get a developer workstation on Ubuntu by following these simple steps : (in French, English version in translation)

If you need help to setup your development environment, we'll be there to help before the workshop, starting at 5:15 PM.

See you Thursday!
