Pizza, Python, Posters, LANs and user groups.


WARNING: This might be a bit of a long post. Some parts of it have been waiting a while because blogging is the devil.

First off, we’d like to thank our friends at Four Star Pizza. We had our AGM (minutes here!) back at the end of November and they gave us a few pizzas for it. Now that Christmas is over and we’re well into the new year we figure that people have enough money again to be spending on random stuff… like pizza. Anyway, they have a new menu and a few deals going at the minute and we’d recommend having a look at them!

Python for Non-Programmers – Monday, November 28th @ 7.30pm


We’re going to be running a two night class on ‘Python for Non-Programmers’ in the Labs. The two nights in question are next Monday, November 28th and the following Monday, December 5th.

This class is intended for those who have either never programmed before or are looking for a bit of a push to start learning Python. It’ll be covering the basics of programming (variables, strings, loops, arrays, functions, etc) using Python 3. In January we’ll be doing a longer Beginner Python course for those who are interested and later again, Intermediate Python.

First class starts at 7.30pm on the 28th and will run until 10pm. The first half hour is installation of the programs we’ll be using for the class. The rest of the time will be spent learning.

Second class will start at 8pm on the 5th and will also run until 10pm. This will be continuing on from where we left off the previous week.

We would ask that those who are coming along to arrive a little early, just in case.

Each class will be €2 for 091 Labs members and €4 for non-members.
