Python Special Interest Group

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

This month Mario will be talking about the pyspread module and Andy will be talking about controlling the the Raspberry Pi's GPIO pins with Python.

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


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.

The MakerBar Python Special Interest Group is Sponsored by Risk Focus Inc.

    I know absolutely nothing about Python. Except that my brother owns a Ball Python named slayer

    I am still looking for speakers if anyone is interested. Personally I would love to see a presentation on or about a Python Package, is anyone working with or contributing to a package that they would be willing to tell us about?

    I think this would be the ideal script to use for a book raffle this week, we'll raffle something if we have 10+ RSVPs.
