"Spread The Word in Python" - Carlos Moreno-Garcia

In this talk, Dr Carlos Moreno-Garcia (School of Computing RGU) will show a simple code to manipulate files using Python and "spread a message" across multiple directories. This message can be anything, from a watermark or even extra code which improves (or not!) other files. Standard Python packages will be used in a virtual environment to ensure there's no damage in your operating system!

If you don’t already have Python set up, we can help you with that too. Coding in pairs or small groups (especially mixing beginner and more experiences coders) is strongly encouraged, though you can also code solo.

This event is orgnanised by a charity - Code The City. CTC suggests a small donation to help with charity admin costs, but if this is a barrier please just change the ticket price to what you can afford.

We're now back to running physical events backed up with an online option.

If you select a physical ticket and it happens that we can not meet physically you will have to attend the Zoom session. If you choose a physical ticket and it goes ahead you will have to comply with any conditions of attendance (eg masks or social distancing) that the venue operators demand at the time.

Those attending the physical space meetup should attend at 6pm for pizza and drinks. The coding session (for online attendees) will be from 6.30pm. Doors will be locked from 6.30pm.

**If tickets are sold out please do not attend as you will be refused entry without a ticket. **

Our booking system is provided by Tito. Their platform is integrated with payment processing by Stripe
