Following on from our rapid-pace Git Good talk (uwcs.co.uk/resources/git-good) we will be giving you hands-on experience with Git. You will get practice with everything the talk covered, which is invaluable to see the benefits and internalize the lessons. We'll also have some experienced exec members on hand to answer any of the many questions that arise from your first(?) journey into version control.
Aimed at complete beginners to programming! Week 1 is kicking off with a talk from us outlining the course and some basic Python concepts, followed by a workshop session to put them in practice. This course will take you from a complete novice to creating a quiz program, so if you've fancied creating some gadgets, a website, or automating some daily task: this course will bring anyone up to speed!
Welcome to the start of term. Celebrate your first day of teaching with some food, while still staying on campus. Entertain any older years with your questionable modules choices, and maybe get some emergency advice. :P
Following on from our talk, fancy a meal out with us? Chill out, enjoy some good food, and maybe some meet new people! We will walk up from the CS Department around 16:45, so feel free to join us on the walk up from there.
