Fwd: May Beginner's Workshop - Python

Brianna Laugher
Hi all,

Saturday 21st is the monthly Linux Users of Victoria (LUV) Beginners
Workshop event, and this month includes a tutorial intro to
programming with Python.

I am sure everyone here won't need such a tutorial but it might be
interesting to go along, if there are any Python newbies I am sure
some extra hands on deck will be helpful. Otherwise, it's a nice,
friendly event to take your laptop to on a Saturday afternoon and hack
away on whatever your latest project is. Also great to get help to
those odd Linux OS questions like "how do I get that panel back?" and
"what's the best program for organising my photos?"

Saturday 21 May, 12 noon at The Hub @ Docklands
near cnr Bourke St and Harbour Esplanade, Docklands

The next LUV Beginner's Workshop and Tutorial and the OLPC Corner will be on
the 21st of May. This month Alec Clews will be giving an introduction to
programming with Python.

The tutorial will start one hour into the workshop, at 1pm. If you wish to
participate in this hands-on tutorial, please bring your laptop with Python

In the usual unstructured workshop format, we intend to cover things like:

 * installing various Linux distributions;
 * tweaking and configuring your system;
 * automatic backups;
 * home networking, including wireless;
 * setting up specific platforms (e.g. MythTV, Asterisk, UbuntuStudio, etc);
 * using specific applications - OpenOffice, Inkscape, GIMP, OpenMovieStudio

... but if you want help with a different application or problem, come along
and let us know. The event is what you make of it. Bring your laptop!

The Melbourne OLPC Club meetings are co-located with the Beginner's Workshops.
If you are interested in the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project, please come
and join in!
