Hello,

The class Python for Beginners - Part 1 will be held on
Wednesday, October 04, 2017 at 16:00 UTC in the channel
#archlinux-classroom on the freenode network. The class is
expected to run for about 2 hours.

This class will introduce you to programming with Python and how
to use IPython with an editor/IDE. Commonly used built-in
functions and libraries will be explained. Other topics will
explored based on participant interests.

The class will be screen-shared live (via YouTube), and later
archived with subtitles. Questions and some discussion on IRC is
expected, however the main part will be video and audio.

In preparation for the class, install the Jupyter notebook.
``pacman -S jupyter`` or, in a Python 3 virtualenv,
``pip3 install jupyter``. Also check out the python-beginners
git repository on Arch Classroom's GitHub[1] where you will find
IPython notebooks and links to useful resources on learning
Python: https://github.com/archclassroom/python-beginners

pulec is an Arch Linux user since 2012, gamer and gardener. He
makes a living using Linux and Python since 2013 and recently
joined Red Hat. He hopes to spread IT knowledge and open source
ideas to the general populace.

Thank you for this, I will look at it

Repeat of this first part will happen at Friday 27th October starting from
7:00 UTC.
Since my first lecture, I am always providing this Virtual Box image with
basic Arch Linux with xfce4, nobody wants to build python3 on some outdated
Red Hat distro.
Its meant mostly for people without Arch, but It might work for you as
well Randy.
Here is the *.ova file https://mega.nz/#!wAEEna4Q which should most
VirtualBox versions be able to import and run.
Hi all,
For learning purposes, you should be happy enough with
https://www.pythonanywhere.com/try-ipython/ and for some graphs later
https://try.jupyter.org/.
However, we will use some packages from https://pypi.python.org/pypi and
you will need at least python, python-pip and python-virtualenv (not
python2).
Looking forward to tomorrow evening.
