Starting Python

From another large group we had a small handful starting with some Python. In case you need to find them again, here are the two sites we used.

PythonAnywhere, a commercial Python-hosting company. We set up beginner accounts (free) and used these to get started quickly with Python. It’s particularly useful for anyone at Coderdojo using a borrowed laptop; all your files are stored on your account and will be there when you get home or come back next week.

Django Girls tutorial, an introduction to Python that aims for a fully-working Django-powered website at the end. We got through the basics of Python this week, and next week we’ll aim to get some of the way to a working website. If you missed this week don’t worry, we’ll have a re-cap of what we did this week and catching up shouldn’t be a problem.
