Python

Tuesdays at lunch (bring your TIDY lunch) from Jan 29 to Apr 23

Python is an interesting and relatively friendly language that is growing in popularity. Used in MANY different places, including backend web development, science, engineering, math applications, and much more. We may possibly explore python coding on Raspberry Pi's (TBD) as well as in Lab 11.
