We in 091 Labs are kicking off our 2013 classes with a bang!
Starting next week are a series of 4 introductory classes in both Linux and Python. Due to the many requests we’ve received over the last year, we’re going to try an experiment with these. Attendees are given the option of choosing one of three time tracks to attend for either and that is the time they attend every week. More info on the classes below
The price for attending is €5 per class for 091 Labs members (€20) and €10 per class for the Public (€40) paid in advance online or at the first class. Links to the various Eventbrites below.
Intro to Python
What you will learn
Start with the basics of programming and how they are dealt with in Python3, moving through functions, data structures, and classes before explaining correct code style. Then stepping into more advanced topics of data handling and files, using the underlying operating system. Following that we’re delve into some functional programming, packaging and installing programs, and some basic server and web templating.

The knitting circle will have its next meeting at the labs on Saturday, January 12th from 4 to 7pm. The knitting circle is open to knitters of all skill levels. It provides a social and collaborative workspace, and help is available for people just starting out. Meetings are held on the second Saturday of each month.
All attendees are encouraged to bring their own supplies, as only a few spare needles are available. Attendance is free for members, and €2 for everyone else. All money goes to the upkeep of the Labs. Any questions can be directed to maraley42 [at] gmail [dot] com.
The fine folks at the Galway Home Brewers Club will be having their December meeting (and kicking off their Christmas party) tonight around sevenish. It’ll be a closed-doors event – just members of the Home Brewers Club, and members of the ‘Labs, and there’ll be a few drinkies being had. Around nineish, the party will transfer to a nearby drinking establishment; most likely the Salt House.
Screening of “One Day on Earth”, a collaborative film made in every country on Earth on 10/10/10.
Around the middle of last year, I came across a Kickstarter (or rather was pointed at it by Aaron) that really caught my interest. The idea was that on one day in 2010, specifically 10/10/10, poeple from countries all over the world were asked to film their lives, surroundings and communities with the aim of telling a story of humanity in the start of the 21st century. The story would be a collaborative effort in more than one way. As well as drawing on the many short films, it was to use a now commonplace, but at the time quite novel means of funding. I decided to join the many other Kickstarters and contribute $100 on behalf of 091 Labs. After quite some time, the film was compiled and produced, and eventually, the DVD made its way to Galway.
We will be holding a screening at 091 Labs at 7pm on the 16th of December. All are welcome. All donations to 091 Labs.
