Girl Develop It: Intro to Python | Caktus Group

Curious about programming? Want to learn one language that you can use to build websites, program robots, visualize data, run servers, and make art? Then you're ready to get started with Python.

Python powers some of the most popular websites and apps we all know and love, like Pinterest, Instagram and Rdio, to name a few. It's used by tech companies all over the world, including many companies right here in Triangle.

Join us for GDIRDU's first Introduction to Python class! During this 4-session class (see dates/times below) we'll explore the basic components of programming with Python: using the Python interactive shell, functions/loops/conditionals, data structures and object oriented and functional programming. We'll mix lecture and practice, and help guide you through the coursework.

We'll spend part of the workshop helping you set up a development environment, so there's no need to install software ahead of time. Just bring your laptop and come prepared to write your first lines of Python code.
