What we're about

For the moment, physical CamPUG meetings are suspended due to COVID-19.

Watch individual meeting announcements for virtual meetings.


We get together once a month to talk about anything related to the Python programming language (https://www.python.org/).

Anyone who is interested in Python is welcome, whatever your level of knowledge (we're very happy to help with questions from those just learning the language), and for whatever purpose you use it.

We meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 7.00pm at the Raspberry Pi offices (37 Hills Rd, Cambridge CB2 1NT). We normally stop about 9.00pm, and go on to the pub.

We have a Twitter account: @campython (https://twitter.com/campython).

We have a Slack workspace (https://join.slack.com/t/campug/shared_invite/enQtMzM2NjcwMzM2ODM2LTQyMmQ5MmVlZGMxMzBhOGQ0MTQ1ZGMyMTkzYjc1MWQzM2M2ZDViZDc5NDEyYmViY2QyNWJlMjg2ZTkwNzc3NjM) anyone can join. If that link doesn't work for you, please contact one of the organisers (currently just Tibs) and ask for access.

We have a mailing list (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/campug), but in practice no-one uses that.

We have a code of conduct (https://github.com/campug/organisational/blob/master/CodeOfConduct.rst), which describes what is or is not acceptable behaviour of members (basically, be kind and considerate of others).

Come and play with Anvil's new App Server

Online event

This is the June monthly meeting. And it's another virtual meeting. Anvil (https://anvil.works), the platform for full-stack web development with nothing but Python, has just released (https://anvil.works/blog/open-source) their runtime framework and App Server as open source! We'll join Meredydd Luff for an online workshop as we build a simple Python-only web application, then deploy it with the newly open-source Anvil App Server. This will be our first experiment at a virtual workshop. We will be collaborating and screen-sharing with Jitsi. Note that we're starting at 19:00 (7pm). I will update this page with the meeting URL (we shall be using https://meet.jit.si/) at 18:00 (6pm), and also email the meeting URL to all those who have RSVPed "yes", in case that's more convenient. Please join the meeting before 19:00 so we can start on time. There's no fixed time for stopping - I don't intend to try and do virtual meetups that last as long as our physical ones, so we're going for one speaker plus discussion, and the meeting will end when the last person exits. Note that Jitsi says that it really only works with the Chrome browser - apparently there are still problems with Firefox and Safari. Remember that everything we do must follow our code of conduct - see https://github.com/campug/organisational/blob/master/CodeOfConduct.rst. Basically, be considerate to each other. And lastly, feel free to join our slack group (https://join.slack.com/t/campug/shared_invite/enQtMzM2NjcwMzM2ODM2LTQyMmQ5MmVlZGMxMzBhOGQ0MTQ1ZGMyMTkzYjc1MWQzM2M2ZDViZDc5NDEyYmViY2QyNWJlMjg2ZTkwNzc3NjM) for general discussion before and after the meeting.
