"To me programming is more than an important practical art. It is also a gigantic undertaking in the foundations of knowledge." 
-- Grace Hopper in Management and the Computer of the Future (1962)

Brr, it' autumn time, everyone's back. Our Indian summer was just a dream. And it's also time for this month's newsletter.

This month I'll be heading up to Derry to run a Beginners Python workshop as part of CultureTECH. It's a week-long festival that celebrates digital media, music and films. We still have plenty of places for this workshop as well as the upcoming Introduction to Javascript workshop this coming Monday.

It has been quite an August with Raspberry Pi to Ruby on Rails to Data Analysis workshops, you can read my write-ups about them.

We are open to people hosting local chapters in their area, so do get in touch if you are interested.

If you have questions/suggestions or want me to mention something in the next newsletter, feel free to email me at
