Welcome to the first Indianapolis Python Workshop: a project-driven introduction to Python for women and their friends!

This workshop is running on the evening of Friday, April 13th, and all day Saturday, April 14th at the Wyndam Indianapolis West, alongside Indiana LinuxFest.

To attend the workshop, please RSVP through IndyPy, the Indianapolis Python user group. You'll need to create a account to RSVP. If you RSVP and then decide that you aren't attending, please update your status through the interface so we can notify someone from the waitlist.

You must be able to attend both days of the workshop to participate.

If the event is full, please sign up for the wait list. If spots open up, will let you know. We'll also give priority to wait-listers for future workshops.
