Come and learn, share, grow, meet new people, and visit old friends at our monthly meeting! We'll be talking about the Python programming language and anything that intersects it, and the cool stuff you can do with it.
The "enum" module was added to the standard library in python 3.4 and provides useful methods for organizing groups of constants or otherwise unique-but-related values. Andrew Kubera will present a short introduction of when and how to use the `enum.Enum` class (and related subclasses) to make your code more straightforward (and more typesafe!).
Travis Risner will then present about curio - the library written by David Beazley to take advantage of the new async and await commands in Python 3.5 and 3.6 to simplify threading and multiprocessing. Come see how to code and manage multiple activities running concurrently without any "callbacks" or other clumsy code. David Beazley, among many other activities, was the keynote speaker at PyOhio 2016, wrote Python Essential Reference, and co-authored the most recent edition of Python Cookbook.
Afterwards we'll be heading to Brazenhead on 5th.
