I have to get out of here a bit early today as I’m attending an “Introduction to Python” workshop (more coding!) tonight and all day tomorrow sponsored by PhillyPUG / PyStar Philly. I need to get home to pack up my laptop and head out so I’m not late tonight (especially given my bus karma this week)! I did the intro to Python class last September, but it didn’t really stick. So when the opportunity to take it again came up, I jumped at the opportunity. I’m hoping my Code Year work has helped so it sticks better this time.
This is my personal blog about random things that happen in my life and any random thoughts that cross my mind.
The opinions expressed here are entirely my own and do not represent the views of my employer in any way.
My favorite quote is from Catherine Aird: "If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to serve as a horrible warning." One way or another, good or bad, everything you do serves as an example to others.
