From the announcement email:"The topic is Python for people who can program (at least a little), but don't know Python at all. We will cover the very basics: syntax, basic data types, lists, dictionaries, control structures, functions, classes and objects, and modules. Or possibly less, depending on how time allows. Certainly not all the details of everything. Most of the examples will be about string manipulation, since that is common in most kinds of programs."
Feel free to join in!
