PYthon Piedmont Triad User Group meetingCome join PYPTUG at out next meeting (June 30th 2014) to learn more about the Python programming language, modules and tools. Python is the perfect language to learn if you've never programmed before, and at the other end, it is also the perfect tool that no expert would do without.
WhatMeeting will start at 5:30pm.
We will open on an Intro to PYPTUG and on how to get started with Python, PYPTUG activities and members projects, then on to News from the community.
Finally, the main part of the meeting will be a workshop. Not Python specific, but about creative problem solving, it should be of interest to many people.
Creative Problem Solving with a Mullet
Demystifying MacGyver is brand new workshop designed and instructed by Evan Booth, creator of Terminal Cornucopia. The mission of Demystifying MacGyver is threefold:
- Equip attendees by covering the theoretical and practical fundamentals of creative problem solving

- Engage attendees with hands-on exercises
Who would benefit from Demystifying MacGyver?Regardless of the industry, one's ability to successfully apply unorthodox thinking to solve problems is the fuel that powers progress and innovation.
