The final exercises are up at https://moot.it/learnpython to finish out the month of May.  We cover project structure, testing, exceptions, and some user input parsing.  

I won't be covering the final 3 exercises in the book, which deal with a web app, but feel free to do them on your own and ask questions!

3 more exercises are up, which introduce you to OOP, and start you on making a text game.  I think this will cover us past Friday through the weekend.

On Monday we'll look at how to write tests for your program

I also prepared a separate deck of slides, explaining Python classes from a different angle if you find you are struggling with the concept:

Next exercise is up, introducing the dictionary!  Dictionaries are so important that I think it will be just this one exercise for the weekend. http://moot.it/learnpython

We'll spend all next week on "classes", the most difficult topic in the book.

is anyone available for some specific coding questions I have? I'm having of trouble with something I'm developing.

Next set of exercises are up.  Some more about lists, some review, debugging, and a larger program.  At http://moot.it/learnpython for Wednesday/Thursday.

After a little thinking. As i am going to hold a GIt course, there are several options. We can use a GUI, or a terminal. Now, i don't expect people to know how to use a terminal. So i wan't people opinions what to do. I can't prepare a git course and a terminal course (i got exams comming up). Maybe someone else wanna hold it? or should we just use the GUI and make a bet it is simple enough to explain git without explaining the gui?
Opinions people! Opinions!
