Workshop Details

                Before starting the workshop idea, I took permissions from the Head Mistress of St Angels English High School, Bangalore to do Python workshops in their premises.

I started the workshop at 9:30 am in the morning on 16th July 2016. There were six students in all, all boys. I could rent out only one laptop that I used for teaching the students.

            I started the session by explaining the students the internals of a computer, the physical architecture, and the components assembled to make the computer the way it does. I briefly touched upon operating systems, front end, high level languages, and low level languages, just telling them what they needed to know before they could dive into Python programming.

           After, I taught the following topics to the students:

1.       Python shell interpreter, and running Python files
2.       Basics of variables, and values
3.       Difference between input and raw_input
4.       Print statements
5.       Numeric int, float, str
6.       Conversions between int, float, str
7.       Mathematical operations
8.       String manipulations
9.       Lists
1.   Slicing strings and lists

           While I taught, I displayed the actual working of these programs. I intend to continue the sessions further on similar lines.
