## Highlights

* There's a half-day class coming up to cover the basics of Linux, git, and Bash, but it's not ready by press-time. We'll send a follow-up.

* Update on the crowd funding effort:
  Looks like we won't be able to raise enough to send both students but we did get enough for one to attend.
  It turns out one of the two had a conflict that popped up anyway and had to bow out. So it worked out!

## Python


Learn Parseltongue and be amazed as you unleash an army of pythons to do your bidding!

Okay, maybe not, but come with us and learn to write Python code and you can drive your silicon slaves to do whatever your heart desires.

>From scraping web data to huge mathematical puzzles and back again to machine learning, there’s nothing this simple, all-purpose language can’t do!

Zac Champion will show you how to code in Python and exhibit a few of the many ways it can be practically used!

Saturday, Aug 4  9am - 1pm (show up any time after 8:30am)
at SFS Comfy Room 4237 W. Grand Ave. Denver, CO 80123

* We are friends. You can post just about anything, but if it doesn't have to do with learning free-libre software, stick an "OT:" in front of it.
* We are professionals (when we must be). Please post your help wanted and job wanted here.
* We hang out in [Mattermost](https://mattermost.sofree.us/signup_user_complete/?id=yxm5sbjra7gsmkaj19ut3w6qgr).
