DFW Pythoneers 2nd Saturday Teaching Meeting

Welcome.  We're a friendly group for those who program using the Python language as well as those wanting to learn it.  We try hard to be beginner friendly as well as cover advanced material.

At our Saturday afternoon meetings we set up a projector for presentations, code reviews of projects and demonstrations of useful add-on packages.  We often pass the plug to the projector around for members to share what they are working on or to get help with their code.  Our sessions are very hands-on so bring your laptops so you can participate.  We have wired and wireless Internet access at our meetings.

Not every meeting has a formal presentation, and because our sessions are 3-hours long, we like to mix it up with different topics.  One way of doing so is for members to step forward and give short, 5-minute talks called lightning talks.  Relax, the format is casual and not intended to cover a topic but to introduce it to the attendees or show off something you're working on.  They're a lot of fun and stimulate ideas for future talks.  Please think about a topic and come prepared.  It could be an simple as just announcing this cool Python library you found on some website one day.  Look thru your bookmarks for ideas.

Our sessions run until 5 pm and then we often go out for dinner as a group.  Our club wiki page can be found at www.dfwpython.org.  Feel free to edit it, perhaps adding a topic of interest to you.  We also have a version control repository (based on Subversion) that anyone is welcome to use for their projects, and a mailing list separate from the Python meetup.com forum to which you can subscribe. Details are on the wiki.

    As someone who is new to the group, new to Python (a month in), and a first time attendee - I really enjoyed the meeting. The toughest thing is to setup up (command line prompt? shell? some other form? an IDE?) 'decode' how to use Python - is it a calculator only? setting up definitions to call later, etc. And though I didn't see all of that answered exactly, it definitely gave me some more pointers as to the end results and some go to sources - so thank you for that. From Ben to Marcel to John and Chris. Thank you.

    Great meeting, and awesome presenter. It was really interesting to see Python being used in such a dynamic and "real time" way.

    We will have a special guest speaker at this meeting. Ben Zaitlen from Continuum Analytics will be talking about IPython Notebook and various scientific computing topics. You can find his Bio at http://continuum.io/author/quasiben

    Other members will also give brief presentations on how they use IPython / IPython Notebook.

    We welcome anyone who has something to share on this topic, or if you are just interested in listening.
