Location: Neville 100
George Markowsky (School of Computing & Information Science, UMaine)
 Are you interested in unleashing the full power of your computer? Then you need to know about the Terminal Application and some of the goodies that it provides access to. One of these goodies is the programming language Python which is a commercial grade programming language used widely in applications. It is also named after Monty Python’s Flying Circus. We will show how to use Python to create a simple game using incremental development. The knowledge you will gain from this session can help you get the most from your computer.
