Announcing the first Dayton Python Workshop for women and their friends, April 5-6, 2013!
The Workshop is a free, friendly, hands-on, beginners' introduction to computer programming. In one short weekend (a Friday evening and a Saturday), participants get a real handle on programming for practical tasks, using the easy yet powerful Python language... while having a fun time with new friends!
The primary target audience is women of all ages and backgrounds, including those who have never programmed before. Men can participate as the guest of a female attendee - that's where the "women and their friends" part comes in. If you're a man who wants to take part, ask a woman you know to join you. Don't underestimate the power of a personal invitation - you'll never know which of your friends just needs a nudge to try it until you give her that nudge.
The workshop is the latest in a series based on the famous Boston Python Workshop; they've already introduced hundreds of beginners to programming in Boston, Columbus, Indianapolis, Portland, Chicago, and Kansas City. It's designed for true beginners to programming - absolutely no programming or computer experience is assumed. (Even experienced programmers have enjoyed the workshop, though - so long as they're new to Python!)
We'll enjoy food and a great venue at New Horizons in Fairborn.
