Beginning Python for Human People with Feelings

Melanie Crutchfield


This tutorial is for people who are **brand new to Python**. It's for people with curioisty to feed, anxiety to overcome, and worlds to change. It's for people named Edna. (And others not named Edna.) During this tutorial you'll be encouraged to **bring your whole self to learning**. We'll start with the very basics of Python, keeping your fingers on the keyboard to gain as much practice as possible. Between strings, functions, and other fun Python-y things, we'll discuss learning deeply, nourishing our brains, and boosting happiness with science. No prior experience required; come just as you are. This about being a whole person. It's about learning Python, because Python is really cool. It's also about staying afloat. Being productive. Focusing. It's about finding joy in the error codes. Come play. It'll be awesome.
