Free Weekly Python Workshop

Hi there everyone!

I have an interesting opportunity for you guys. I am planning on doing a weekly online Python workshop. It will be for 2 hours every week. This is only for women (for now) who want to get started with programming or want to improve their current knowledge. It is entirely free. This is your best chance to learn from me. The seats will be limited to 5-10 in the first batch as it is an experiment for me as well. So try to fill in the form as soon as you can. I will announce the names of the selected candidates after a couple of days.

Best of luck!

Form: http://goo.gl/forms/nk7lM976bm

PS: You can share this form with anyone else you know who would be interested in this opportunity.

If you have any questions then feel free to write them in the comments bellow. I would love to answer them :)

Forget Perl, Java, FORTRAN, IDL, or whatever else they were pushing when you got your degree. This type of discussion is usually emotionally charged – many a flame war has been fought over programming languages. Feelings will get hurt. Heads will roll. But first …
