Today at our 17th meetup
we had our first talk and hackroom by one of our own members, Ali Hamdan, a network security engineer at RiverSafe. Ali gave an intro to Python to the whole group
, then took anyone interested in learning more to another meeting room.
Ali is a self-described Python addict: “My interest in computing began during 6th form where I’d experiment with various penetration testing techniques. This led me to leaving my studies of business and graphics to studying computing at college.
“After leaving college with a keen interest in programming, I started an apprenticeship with an insurance software company programming in C#.net for a year. I then moved on to working as a freelance web developer with over 10 projects in a year.”
Meanwhile I helped some front enders with their own projects and introduced people to Jekyll
. Then Sharla, Jerome and I messed around with Boomerang.Join us next time! January 14th!
It’s fun! We’ll also be at Sky HQ on February 21st
Also, got a passion to share like Ali? Let us know if you’d like to give a talk or run a hackroom. We’re totally flexible on the format. Just message us on Meetups or message Jerome
