I had the honor of working with Mike Crute and David Stanek to produce and deliver an all-day tutorial session at CodeMash 2013, where we got folks up to speed on Python and then ran them through a series of iterative exercises as we built a small Django site together.
We promised slides, and though we took a bit of a break to celebrate and then enjoy the conference, I wanted to make sure we didn't wait too long before making them available. Hopefully they will be a useful reference in spite of their lack of the interactivity inherent in a live tutorial session.
You can clone down the sample code repository if you'd like to play along at home.
I think it's safe to say we had a great time presenting at and attending CodeMash and are looking forward to continuing to make sure Python is represented there.
