Richard Jones' Log: Lecturing Python at RMIT

Sun, 15 Jul 2007

This got lost in recent goings-on in my life, but I wanted to mention that I'll be lecturing the Python component of a course at RMIT starting in late August. It's only 6 lectures, but I have a lot of prep work because the lectures haven't been updated for years (they were written around 2001). Thus there's examples that use the string module for string operations, and missing data types, and so on.

I'm looking forward to it, and the course sorely needs the update, but it does mean that I've had little time to devote to the recent Cheese Shop goings-on, and I almost forgot to set a date for the next PyWeek, and I've been neglecting my responsibilities with The Python Papers (minimal though they are), etc.

Also, the lectures are all in LaTeX. I haven't touched that since I left university, over a decade ago. Fortunately, there's kile. I've toyed with the idea of translating them to Bruce but I need to update the content first and then see how much time I have left.

Hey that's great. I've often thought that would be something I'd like to do one day.
