 + 
 +So you came to Intro to Python Programming and you said...yeah,​ yeah. 
 +Variables. Data types. Conditionals & loops. BORING. This stuff is too 
 +easy! I'll be doing a followup class that digs deeper into common 
 +builtin functions of standard data types, libraries, and ways you can 
 +solve common problems as a sys admin, hacker, math nerd, etc. The 
 +first part will be an interpreter hands on and the second part you'​ll 
 +solve problems with sample data, text files, etc. 
 + 
 +See below for instructions on what you need before the class (Python 
 +and a text editor, basically) as well as some introductory material 
 +for those who want to get a head start.

 +===== Topics we'll cover: =====
 +
 +Stuff:
 +  * Useful builtin functions
 +  * Useful datatype functions
 +  * List comprehensions
 +  * Lambda functions
 +  * Generators
 +  * Function decorators
 +
 +Common happenings & hands-on exercises:
 +  * Math problems
 +  * Sorting problems
 +  * File parsing problems
 +
 +(There will be a lot of these small, hands-on problems. Prizes for
 +highest # solved!)
