Today another former student of Mr. Preble, Steve Leighton, came into the club and taught the Python programming language.
Steve is a former student of United Technologies Center where he studied 3D and programming and is currently a student at the University of Maine – Orono campus and majoring in Computer Science.
He came in and taught the club members the basics of Python and then had them run through some “typical” Computer Science related problems. They went over different variable types, loops, classes, and functions first and then were asked to apply it through programming their way to solving complex problems.
It was a great intro to a versatile and rapid development language from a very capable programmer (and artist).
