Hi Lukas/Pystar,

I was wondering if there are pystar survey results that you can share
yet? I'd be curious to read them!


thanks,

Hey all,

Here's the survey results from last weekend's PyStar SF

Pre Workshop (anonymized):

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqrLWWrDZOf5dDFXNFVKWkVveFlJRjdCeGhOWXJxM3c&hl=en_US

Post Workshop survey:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqrLWWrDZOf5dEtfb3J2QWFNLVRBUm1zNlpvUnZMUWc&hl=en_US

I think we did a pretty good job of addressing the feedback from PyStar
Bay Area which requested more programming exercises for folks who have
already touched a programming language before. Still lots of room for
improvement though. I'm hoping that today's talk at PyGotham might lead
to some additional curriculum hacking while I'm in NYC, but also as
Pamela suggested another hack night I'll look into doing that when I get
home. Perhaps we can pull in folks who aren't in SF too over
vidyo/etherpad/github and have a distributed hack night.

Cheers,
Lukas

Hi Lukas,

as I recall, spreadsheets has another way to look at form results,
somewhere in the form menu. Maybe that would be easier to read - is it
possible to share that?

I'm attaching some screenshots comparing pre & post (I used these in the
PyStar talk at PyGotham) as well as a zip of the saved web pages of
summarized form output. I couldn't find a way to export that view from
google docs so I figured this was better than saving as a pdf, though I
can do that if it helps anyone.

I really like seeing how people do feel more comfortable and in command
of their computers after the workshop, among other things.

Cheers,
Lukas

Interesting-- I think it'd be good to more formally incorporate a
command-line tutorial. I sprinkled command line stuff throughout mine
where it made sense but I think most of my students would have
benefited from a solid 20 minutes of command-line-ery.
