First Python Workshop of 2019 completed!
By Vicky Twomey-Lee in Dublin Jan. 23, 2019, 2:01 p.m.
We ran our 1st workshop of 2019, here's a quick write-up with resources. 🙌👩💻👩🏻💻👩🏼💻👩🏽💻👩🏾💻👩🏿💻
During the workshop, I realised the Python scripts some folks were using were the older version (in Python 2 as well), if you had problems running the scripts, you can download the latest Python scripts again (I've removed all the other .zip files) via https://bitbucket.org/codinggrace/python-project-workshop/downloads/

We ran out of time at the end, here are some resources to follow up:
- Hitch Hikers Guide to Python - docs.python-guide.org
