Python programming

  • Want to revive 'Python: a whirlwind tour'
    • Split into 3 stages:

      2. Python for people who know some python or have programmed before
      3. Advanced python - metaclasses, types etc.
    • Theme things about robotics
      • Simulated 'robot' moving around grid on the terminal

    • Game manager every year
  • Be clear about length of talk (5-10min or 30?)

  • Put it on native.susu.org?
  • Technicians are happy to do it if you ask them
    • Maybe not if it's open to everyone
