I've decided to try something different and will be holding Python "office hours" in Tog on Thursday evening. It's not really a secret but I'm not exactly advertising it either. I sent an email to my former students for Thursday's test run, and depending on how it goes I may hold these regularly and be more vocal about it.
What is it going to be about? This is sort of a follow-up to an intro course, for people who have a project but can still get stuck and could use some guidance. Or for people who want to reinforce their knowledge of Python/get up to speed by doing exercises, with someone nearby to give a hand if needed. Basically it's for people who want to do their own thing, with the knowledge that if things don't work there's someone who should be able to help in the room, rather than hours of frustration in sight. Or that's the idea! This isn't a course, I won't be teaching or lecturing or erm talking that much. If no one needs help I'll be working on my own stuff.
I look forward to seeing how it goes. Drop by Tog ( map ) anytime between 6.30 and 9pm this Thursday if you're interested! And feel free to drop me a note (see About page) if you're curious but not sure if it's a good fit for you.
