What we're about

The Bay Area Python Interest Group (BAyPIGgies) was formed in July 1999. Although we use MeetUp.com for advertising to new members, our governance and main communication happens at https://baypiggies.net/ (http://baypiggies.net/) and https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/baypiggies.

We meet the fourth Thursday of every month from 7:00pm - 9:00pm (except on November and December where we make special arrangements for the holidays). We are always looking for new speakers. Please reach out to our current organizers (Glen Jarvis and Jeff Fischer ) if you would like to give a talk. You don't have to be an expert programmer to give a talk.

pygwidgets: Object-Oriented GUI Widgets for Pygame

Online event

This month's meeting will feature a talk by Irv Kalb on widgets for PyGame. The talk will start with a quick description of the pygame environment, which is used for building graphical user interface based games and applications in Python. Unfortunately, pygame does not provide standard user interface widgets (e.g., buttons, text boxes, etc.) "pygwidgets" (pronounced "pig wijits") was written to fill this void. I will explain the use of these widgets from a programmers point of view (the API), and talk about the implementation as a good example of object-oriented programming techniques. Speaker bio: Irv Kalb Irv Kalb has a BS and MS in Computer Science and has spent his whole career in various roles in software. He worked for a number of high tech companies in Silicon Valley and worked as an independent consultant as "Furry Pants Productions" for many years. For the past ten years, he has taught software development at local colleges. He currently teaches Python programming at Cogswell University of Silicon Valley and at University of California Santa Cruz Extension in Santa Clara. He has published an introductory book on Python programming, and is finishing up a new book on object-oriented programming in Python (coming soon to a bookstore near you).
