May Newsletter and moar news
By Vicky Twomey-Lee in Dublin May 16, 2016, 9:49 p.m.
After a bit of hiatus on figuring out what workshops to run, and being busy working with Dogpatch Labs as their developer liaison and events coordinator, I'm planning Python and Unity3D workshops.
I've asked for folks to RSVP their interest in Python and I have over 40 people who want to learn about Python, that's amazing! Keep your eyes peeled, I will be finding a venue for a weeknight this month with capacity for 15 people, so I will be running a few Python workshops in the coming months.
There a few things I want your attention about...
