Welcome back to the London Python Dojo, once again hosted at Bank of America.
Food and drinks will be provided, photo ID necessary and festive jumpers encouraged.
We will have our usual mixture of beer and pizza, socialising, lightning talks, hacking on silly problems and more beer. Also we're giving away a much-sought-after book thanks to O'Reilly.
So book now for a free ticket!
What is a dojo?
A coding dojo is a safe place (we use the PyCon UK code of conduct) to deliberately practise and develop your coding skills, and perhaps learn something new too. We don't really (read: never) stick to a strict dojo format but rather brainstorm ideas for problems to solve, choosing one by popular, if complicated, vote, and then break into teams courtesy of the London Python Dojo Fully Patented Numbering Scheme for an hour and a half of furious coding (at least, furious something). To wrap the evening up each team does a “show and tell”, and end with drinks in the pub.
All programming abilities welcome, we have diverse attendees ranging from beginners to core Python contributors!
Here's a presentation given at Europython 2011 that explains things further And a blog post: "How to Run an Awesome Code Dojo".
