[Python Edinburgh] Python Workshop/Support group Edinburgh

Hi all,

I'd vote that we start with a general "bring-a-project" workshop, since 
there seems to be a clear demand and it's the simplest (pretty much zero 
preparation, except for a venue) and see if there's a need for more 
specialised sessions later on.

I could mentor for science things -- e.g. data analysis and 
visualisation -- but I'd have a go at anything else, too.

Cheers,

Alisdair
