Wrapup Notes

Wrapup[edit]

  • THANK YOU for taking part! I really enjoyed your enthusiasm and watching you learn. I look forward to seeing you again and staying in touch!
  • Overall, the most complete listing of beginners' resources is on the "Beginners' Guide" under "Documentation" at [www.python.org]. (Unfortunately, as of today, that website is still down! In the meantime, though, you can see the page at the Wayback Machine).

We'll pick just a few of these resources out for extra attention.
