This practice oriented course will allow novices and wannabe programmers (or people interested to understand "how these things work") quickly get started. The idea is to show how you can get started "small" and play with coding to get used to the way of thinking / doing, and move to an interesting result, without spending hours on the theory background. The Python programming language is ideal for that process. It is often referred to as a language for pragmatic programmers. And it is used with great success in diverse modern application areas such as webapps, computers/servers automation, and data science. For this to be effective for you, please bring a laptop where we will install the necessary software and play "live" with coding.

Bring one of the following:
A contact for a potential development gig (e.g. for a project looking for a freelance)
A surprise
Coffee / Tea
Send a tweet about my project
Your enthusiasm

About the teacher, Kamon Ayeva

I am a freelance developer. I use the Python programming language and web development tools, on a daily basis to deliver projects, mainly for webapps. I have an active interest into contributing to new entrepreneur projects, using Internet-based innovations and the open data.

L’humanité est confrontée depuis plusieurs années à un contexte de crise systémique global (économique, écologique, social…), qui semble à la fois lié à la fin de la disponibilité de l’énergie et des matières premières à faible coût ainsi qu’à la destruction de l’équilibre écologique vital (dérèglement du climat, pollution). – Bien que l’humanité tente de maintenir possible son développement dans ce contexte difficile, il n’a pas été démontré qu’elle soit capable de s’affranchir de déterminismes évolutifs qui la dépassent (les lois de l’évolution, les principes de la thermodynamique), qui expliquent pourquoi les transitions envisagées ne sont pas réalisables. Ce cours a pour but de favoriser les échanges d’informations et de compétences afin d’anticiper au mieux ce déclin, de tenter d’éviter une dégradation trop importante ou brutale des structures vitales de nos sociétés et de préserver malgré la déplétion les meilleures conditions de vie possible pour le plus grand nombre. Je souhaiterais lancer une cycle de conférence/débat pour informer les gens et les amener à se questionner sur les causes de notre trajectoire sociale qui nous amène dans le mur. Le premier cours portera sur le bilan planétaire en 2017 sur les enjeux de ressources matérielles (énergie, minerais divers, etc...) et des contraintes environnementales (climat, polluants). Une fois le cadre expliqué, les cours suivants porteront les fausses perceptions que nous avons de nous-même (individuellement et socialement) et de nos actions.

Bring one of the following:
faire évoluer els mentalités
préparer les autres
relayer l'information
solliciter les organes de décision et de pouvoir
soutenir les projets concrets

About the teacher, Adrien Couzinier

Ingénieur en énergies renouvelables et économies d'énergie, je m'intéresse depuis plusieurs années aux problématiques énergétiques et climatiques et par extension au défi de notre futur déclin. Au quotidien, j'essaye d'avoir une vie quotidienne la moins impactante pour l'environnement et je lance un projet d'éco-tourisme sur une ferme avec permaculture, aromathérapie, apiculture etc ... Je fais partie d'associations de formation aux étudiants en énergie/climat et de courants politiques de l'objection de croissance et de la décroissance.

This is not a lecture. It is a dialogue in which anyone who wishes can participate. It is about talking and it is about listening. But most importantly of all it is about thinking, considering and reconsidering not only the thoughts and arguments of others but those of our own. No previous knowledge of philosophy is required. But what is philosophy? Philosophy is the process systematically answering certain kinds of questions about certain kinds of thing. The main areas of philosophy are Metaphysics - questions about what exists, Epistemology - questions about what we can know about what exists, Ethics, Aesthetics and Political philosophy - questions about what we value in what there is, Philosophy of Language - questions about how it is that our words mean things, and Logic - questions about the validity of our arguments. Roughly speaking, philosophy can be distinguished from science, which is concerned with empirical evidence, and religion, which which is concerned with faith and mystical revelation.

Bring one of the following:
Boring postcards
Feedback
Interesting postcards
Participation
Pictures from a magazine

About the teacher, Darren Poynton

Alexander Technique is the best self-help technique you have (probably) never heard of! Its a really practical way of becoming more aware of how you move and react and how we all tend to put too much effort into everyday tasks. It has been shown to help with chronic back pain by breaking the pain-tension- more pain cycle. But it is about more than pain, posture and bad backs, its about mindful movement and responses to life.

Bring one of the following:
Bring a friend with back pain
Curiosity
Dance lesson
Introduction to something fun and unusual in Norwich
Web design/social media advice

About the teacher, Mireille Heald

I'm Mireille, and I've recently moved to Norwich. I'm a STAT registered Alexander Technique teacher, which involved 3 years full time training. I was a vet until back pain forced me to give up work. Alexander Technique was really helpful to me and having a scientific and practical way of thinking I aim to teach it in a really down to earth way.
