The aim of this weekly event is to offer a place where fellow Python learners and developers can come and asks questions and/or code with some company!
Come work on these exercises for learning python:

Hey, thanks for setting this up! I was talking to some of you in the Chesterfield room and I mentioned the free O'Reilly webcasts (e.g. intro to d3.js or intro to Python's Pandas). Here's the links to the webcasts. Hope it helps:

Wondering about Python development environment pros and cons, e.g., Windows vs. Linux (CentOS). Any thoughts?

I've tried it in both and will happily help you set up an env in either. However, after switching to a *nix style env I feel I have been freed of a lot of system administration tasks. Virtualbox offers a free way to run a *nix os within the Windows system you may be setup with now. Hope that helps!
Centos is very stable, but a bit behind on lots of stuff. Outside of .NET development, I hate to be stuck on a windows machine.

i've had good luck with this 100% debian based distro, aptosid.com, can write *iso to a usb stick and use it to boot and run to try it out.. has everything to shrink current, create new or whatever your disc's current partitions and install.. start it or whatever you've got with grub2... could make you 19% happier.. rolling releases.. multiple new *iso a year.. etc..
Also, please follow the orange meetup signs to the couches towards the back. I will be hanging out there. If you have any issues, please feel free to ping me at [masked]
