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.

If anyone has any questions, join our public mailing list and ask us there!

Rupture: Street Fighter Tournament. Saturday, 15th October.


Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition Tournament

While first person shooters and war games grew more and more popular over the years, there is one genre that always stood proud in the world of competitive gaming. That is – the fighting game genre!

With regular tournaments being held all over Ireland (including Dublin and Cork), it’s time Galway got it’s chance to fight the good fight.

Rupture will be held in 091 Labs (above Kennedy’s pub) in Eyre Square on Saturday 15th October, where Galway’s finest fighters can battle it out on a number of Xbox 360’s to prove their worth in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition. With a €10 entrance fee and a chance to win quite a bit more, Rupture will be an incredibly intense and fun competition, as players are travelling from all over to compete. And for the full effect, we’ll be showing the grand finals on a big screen!

Registry will take place between 12-1pm on Saturday 15th October, with the tournament starting soon afterwards. So be sure to turn up early to secure your place in the tournament, and to warm up with a few casual fights too.
