The class Python for Beginners - Part 1 will be held on 
Wednesday, October 04, 2017 at 16:00 UTC in the channel 
#archlinux-classroom on the freenode network. The class is 
expected to run for about 2 hours.

This class will introduce you to programming with Python and how 
to use IPython with an editor/IDE. Commonly used built-in 
functions and libraries will be explained. Other topics will 
explored based on participant interests.

The class will be screen-shared live (via YouTube), and later 
archived with subtitles. Questions and some discussion on IRC is 
expected, however the main part will be video and audio.

In preparation for the class, install the Jupyter notebook. 
``pacman -S jupyter`` or, in a Python 3  virtualenv, 
``pip3 install jupyter``. Also check out the python-beginners 
git repository on Arch Classroom's GitHub[1] where you will find 
IPython notebooks and links to useful resources on learning
