Our June meetup's topic is Web Scraping
It's a somewhat complete treatment of the topic, if you come, it'll be
greatly enriching. It's not a series of talks, it's a series of actions
^^_. See here
The remaining talk spots are quick ones of 15 mins. If you want to present
something, just ping.
We have wonderful potentials in this small country of ours. Wonderful
people with towering skills. For us to benefit from ourselves, we need
efficiency. Meetups are one step forward, but meeting for the sake of
meeting achieves nothing. That's why we need to up our time quality.
Let's say someone invests 40mins. He wants to get something beyond
awareness, else, 5 such sessions and someone will remain as ignorant as he
was. Awareness helps the curious ones and experts, the latter ones needing
only hints to pour out wonders as they can work out the details. But those
getting their hands dirty want tangible stuffs. That's why we are
attempting to optimise our meetups, introducing more practise.
If you've ever taught programming before, you'd have noticed that mere
following of a topic does not guarantee the grasp of concepts or usage
confidence. By decreasing the teaching material and increasing exercises,
students really 'learn' and teachers really 'teach'. That's why this meetup
is a dip in the ocean. We are covering key points. We expect the meetup to
continue at home, for days after, with the codes you've been playing with.
'Speakers' will be around for questions.
We believe that those presenting benefit much more than those attending.
That's why we encourage everybody to come up with something to present.
