Dear pythonistas,

we received from Gen Ashley on behalf of OpenTechSchool this urgent request:

Dates: 12th May 2014 and 19th May
Place: The Skills Matter eXchange, 116-120 Goswell Road, EC1V 7DP, London
Time:  starts at 18.30

OpenTechSchool would like to invite you to coach for one of their free
classes offered to new learners of Python.

We are holding our third batch of classes (2nd batch for Python, which
is proving to be popular to learners) this MONDAY, MAY 12 and next
MONDAY, MAY 19, but we are currently short on Python coaches.

In case you wonder, here is a link to a short coaching guide - which
describes how the classes are run:

  http://opentechschool.github.io/slides/presentations/coaching/ [2].

There are around 60 learners signed up (with 30+ more on the waiting
list) and we will need around 4-5 more coaches. Developers don’t need
to commit to both dates, but it will be nice. Here is a link to the
"Beginners Python learning materials":

  http://opentechschool.github.io/python-beginners/en/index.html. [3]

The classes will be held at SKILLS MATTER, Goswell Road, London from
6:30pm to 8pm. We are hoping to hear back from developers who has some
time to spare (especially this coming Monday). We understand this is
short notice.

If you have the time to spare this MONDAY, MAY 12 and/or the next
MONDAY, MAY 19 - please email team.london at opentechschool.org.

Gen Ashley
Co-Organiser, OpenTechSchool London

What is OpenTechSchool?
 OpenTechSchool London (http://www.meetup.com/opentechschool-london
 [1]) is a community initiative offering free programming workshops and
 meetups to technology enthusiasts of all genders, backgrounds, and
 experience levels. It supports volunteer coaches in setting up events
 by taking care of the organizational details. OTS’ main goal is to
 create a friendly learning environment where no one feels shy about
 asking any question. Everyone is invited to participate, whether as a
 coach or a learner.

 The range of free courses offered can range from HTML/CCS/JavaScript
 to Python, Ruby, GIT, Mobile development and others. As these are
 “coaching” classes, rather than a “teaching” class, it’s a
 more relaxed environment for both learners and coaches, as there is no
 teacher in front, but coaches are around to help learners, if they hit
 difficulty, as they go through the learning materials (already
 prepared). Please see http://www.meetup.com/opentechschool-london [1]
 to see photos from previous coaching classes.
