I'm about to start a course in Beginning Programming in Python.

It will be held on the courses at linuxchix.org mailing list.
Lessons will be posted weekly, probably on Fridays, with the
first lesson starting on Friday, June 17. Yes, that's only two
days from now, so now's the time to subscribe to the courses
list if you aren't already.

This is intended a short course, probably only 4-5 weeks to start with,
aimed mostly at people who are new to programming. Though of course
anyone is welcome, even if you've programmed before. And experienced
programmers are welcome to hang out, lurk and help answer questions.
It might conceivably be extended if people are still interested and
having fun.

If you want to follow the Python course without other Courses
list traffic, once you've subscribed, go to "Edit options" and
subscribe to the "Beginning Programming in Python" topic category.
If you don't choose any topic categories, you'll see the whole list.
Right now, nearly all the list traffic concerns this course, so
there's not much difference.

The course is free (just subscribe to the mailing list)
and open to both women and men. Standard LinuxChix rules apply:
Be polite, be helpful. And do the homework. :-)
