What we’re about

GothPy is an association of Python programmers based in Gothenburg, Sweden. It's run by Python programmers, for Python programmers. Various of our employers sponsor the group with meeting venues, refreshments, and organizer time. The group was founded in April 2008 and holds roughly monthly meetings.

New members of the group are asked to answer some questions about themselves and how they are using Python, and this helps us to get to know one another. At the meetings we also often go round the group and everyone presents themselves. One aim of this meetup is to encourage Pythonistas in Göteborg to get to know one another, it helps everyone in the long run. The community is not very large and we may find people who we would like to work with in future, or who can help us with particular challenges we face in our Python programming.

Meetings are usually held after work, 18:00 - 20:30, and begin with friendly chatting over pizza slices, wraps or sandwiches. The main part of the meeting is often spent listen to a presentation of some Python-related topic by someone in the group. Often we follow that up with some actual coding, working through an example or exercise.

This group is only open to Python programmers resident in Göteborg or the surrounding area. Exceptions to this rule are made at the discretion of the organizers.

This meetup is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of meetup participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any meetup event, including talks, workshops, and this website. Meetup participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the group at the discretion of the organizers.
