Omaha Python Users Group Meeting, June 20, 2011

Filed under: info,MeetingNotes — JeffH @ 8:47 pm

Tonight’s Meeting:

Joe talked about the 2 semester course he attended at Iowa Western on Linux Engineering.

Steve talked about Code Like a Pythonista, by David Goodger.  He thinks it is a great resource.  I agree with him. (So much I did a presentation on David’s material back in 2008).  Steve also liked the Python Challenge.  He has made it though the first 5 or 6 so far and hopes to make it all the way through.

Joe brought up the fact that Full Circle Magazine – has released two specific Python issues, Issue 1 and Issue 2.

Jeff brought a Code editor that he likes, Editra.  It is a very nice, rapidly advancing development environment.  If you are in the market you should take a look if Komodo or PyCharm are turning your head.

A non-python, learn how to program environment is MIT’s Scratch.  Joe likes Snake Wrangling for Kids.
