Hi Lorenz,

I've already started teaching myself Python and will organizing a Python
learning group for journalists through Hacks/Hackers Toronto with our first
meetup this Saturday, so yes, I'd love to participate with the P2PU course
and will let the others who attend know about this, too.

Signing up right now!
