London Python Dojo Returns to Mind Candy

Last night saw the return of the London Python Dojo to the Mind Candy office. For those who are unfamiliar, the dojo is a monthly meetup for python enthusiasts that really covers the full range of “What’s Python?” to “I’ve been using Python for 24 years”, where we meet and come up with ideas/scenarios/problems that can be solved with Python in a couple of hours (usually after some refreshments).resized1.resized2

Ideas are written on a whiteboard an then voted on for what to project to take on for the evening. We then break of in to teams and code for about an hour or so and then each team presents what they’ve done and the ideas behind what they were trying to accomplish (even if you don’t have working code).

Last night’s task was to implement battleship logic/strategy which then could be played against other teams. You can see the (unofficial) winning team’s code here.

I am really biased as I was in fact a part of Team 1.

Overall a very good evening in good company creatively coding. (as it usually is).
