Re: Learning Python in a group

I'm sure that many (myself included) would be happy to help out, but
due to timezone differences, working hours, etc you may only get
responses up to 24 hours (or more) later.
Awesome, heh I'm sure we'll have questions for the list in good time :)

What needs does your (non-face-to-face) group have that would not be
met by posting questions to the Python Tutor list?

http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/tutor

Perhaps you and your co-learners can sign up to that list, and
coordinate with that list's users to use your wiki, messaging
services, etc?
Actually, I hadn't seen that list before but I've just signed up for
it and it sounds really interesting! The big difference really is that
I'd like to try and build something a little more personal, where we
have a group of people who can contact each other in real time and
have regular meeting times as well as being able to find each other in
between meetings too. I think this kind of consistent relationship is
probably quite conducive to learning, and I think others would
probably agree :)
Personally I learned Python from the Python docs (starting with the
tutorial), practice, and Google. Dive Into Python is good too.
Yeah, I think we're definitely going to be making use of these
resources, and then just using each other as support as we wade
through the material and inevitably get stuck in places!

Thanks for your help :)

Best,

Jon

I guess it's time to choose what a project your group will work at.
Personally, I'm working at the project relating to text analysis, but
it's rather specific because I use Russian texts. So, maybe we should
to choose more 'international' implementation.

hi guys.

I would be glad to join your group because i want to learn deeper
python but i am frustrated of isolation too. It would provide
stimulation and encourage to study and will boost our desire to learn.
So count me in!

Hi, I am new to Python and am trying to write a little front end to another application in Python. What I want is to have a gui pop up listing some items with several buttons. The guts of the program I am not having any trouble with but the GUI part I am (or more accurately, the transition between GUI pieces).

Recently I woke up inclined to take up the task of learning another programming language.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
