Python Special Interest Group

We'll be meeting to discuss Python and all things Pythonic.

Doors will open at 7pm event starts at 8pm.  The workshop will not be open for soldering as part of this event.

For August Travis & Andy will be speaking.

Andy will discuss the essential topics in learning or teaching Python based on his upcoming Python for Financial programmers class.

Travis is still working on the details of his talk and we will add at least one other talk.  Feel free to suggest a future talk or volunteer to give one in the comments.

Each month for the Python Special Interest group meetup we will have two talks, one about a "pure Python" topic, a library or technique, a speaker or discussion depending what there is interest in and a second "hackerspace Python" topic with Python used to control a device or used in some sort of hacker device, or some MakerBar project that would seem particularly interesting to this group.

 

Potential talks:

* Talk about a piece of Python software, either the speaker's own or something from the community.

* Talk about a talk, represent or critique some talk given by another speaker, keynotes are good for this.

* Ask for help, bring some code that we can do a group code review on.

* Lead a discussion, tell us what's on your mind and we'll have a little chat about it, our meeting table is a big whiteboard so a big mind-map is a pretty cool option.

    Not at all, everyone should find some value. It will be a bit meta, and discuss what should be taught/learned by anyone and why. Even the course itself would be good for anyone wanting to learn Python for backend applications rather than say scientific Python, Django, or Python for games.

    Will tomorrow's talk only be relevant to those who work in finance?
