The class Python for Beginners - Part 1 will be held on Wednesday, October 04, 2017 at 16:00 UTC in the channel #archlinux-classroom on the freenode network. The class is expected to run for about 2 hours.

This class will introduce you to programming with Python and how to use IPython with an editor/IDE. Commonly used built-in functions and libraries will be explained. Other topics will explored based on participant interests.

The class will be screen-shared live (via YouTube), and later archived with subtitles. Questions and some discussion on IRC is expected, however the main part will be video and audio.

In preparation for the class, install the Jupyter notebook. ``pacman -S jupyter`` or, in a Python 3 virtualenv, ``pip3 install jupyter``. Also check out the python-beginners git repository on Arch Classroom's GitHub[1] where you will find IPython notebooks and links to useful resources on learning Python: https://github.com/archclassroom/python-beginners
