Hands-On: Introduction to Python Programming using the IoT Greenhouse

February 19, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - February 26, 2019 @ 7:30 pm EST

The term “fastest-growing” can be hard to precisely define. But many, including Stack Overflow, make the case that Python is the fastest-growing programming language. As a beginner, start with easy-to-learn Python, a powerful tool for building web applications or simple automation.

Join this Hands-On session to learn the basics of Python development. You’ll learn by doing, creating simple control code for the Raspberry Pi-based IoT Greenhouse. Basic coding will be introduced during this two session workshop, with follow-up 20Fathoms events planned in the near future.

System hardware and software are provided for the introductory session, so size is limited.

This is a four-hour class, scheduled over two weeks. Please attend both.  

For ages 16 and older. Please register in advance.

Workshop Dates

 – Tuesday, Feb. 19 from 5:30 to 7:30
