PyNight at theClubhou.se! Over 40 people came by on a Monday night to speed their fingers through code!
More and more folks are developing interest in computer programming. theClubhou.se has partnered with Booz-Allen-Hamilton to host a quarterly programming night, usually focusing on Python. Employees from BAH who are experts in Python serve as mentors for the event. Challenges are presented for those more versed in coding, and prizes awarded at the end go the night to the top performing attendees!
Those just getting started in programming can also join in with the ‘n00b Nook’. The mentors are available to work with newcomers to begin laying the groundwork for explorations into Python. We had another packed out computer lab with folks getting an introduction to Python.
Python is a computer programming language which has gained popularity because of it’s versatility and ease of use. Created in the late 1980s by Guido von Rossum as a “hobby” language to play with away from work, Python has climbed to be ranked in the top five programming languages in recent years.
Be on the lookout for the next quarterly programming night with Booz-Allen-Hamilton!
