What we're about

Meet other local Python developers, learners, employers, and enthusiasts of all kinds. All skill levels are welcome: if you are interested in Python, we are interested in you! Come along and expand your network of people, opportunities, and ideas.

We have great regular events:

Monthly presentation series: these are mid-length presentations (30 minutes to an hour) about topics of interest to the community. Sometimes we also have lightning talks (5-15 minutes). If you have something you'd like to share with everyone, drop a line to the organisers!

Monthly informal "Hands-on" evenings: these are a chance to sit down with other Python developers of all experience levels to push your project forward, get help with a particular trouble spot, share expertise, or do whatever else you like. These formally start at 6:30 (when the pizza arrives) but you can drift in from about 5:45. There will be a brief training session to kick things off each time. The training content will be aimed at the beginner level.

This meetup.com group is for the Auckland meetings.

Auckland Python Hands-On Coding Night

22 Viaduct Harbour Avenue

The Auckland members of the New Zealand Python Users Group have a Hands-On Coding night each month. You're very welcome to attend. We have a mix of Python users. Students, academics, hobbyists, industry professionals, and some completely new to Python. During these meetups, we pull out our own laptops and dig into coding something meaningful that works. We'll do a quick "round" at the start, where you can introduce yourself, your project, and any need for expertise you may have. People tend to wander around, checking out what others are using Python for, and giving ideas and tips where appropriate. Those Attendees planning to work on an Open Source contribution, please try to set up your environment with a clone of the OSM (Open Street Map) project ahead of time. As this event occurs around a sociable dinner time, our happy sponsors Microsoft have offered to supply pizza. So please only RSVP if you actually attend coming, otherwise you leave the real attendees no option but to engage in wasteful eating practices. The doors open at 6:30pm. We will be taking volunteers for holding the doors open downstairs while we set up on Level 5. Everything should be wrapped up by 8:30pm. See you there! We follow the NZPUG code of conduct to create an inclusive friendly environment. https://python.nz/Page/42341 (Please be nice to everyone!)

Auckland Python Presentation

AUT, Room WZ416

The Auckland members of the New Zealand Python Users Group meet every month. You're very welcome to attend. We have a healthy mix of Python users. Students, academics, hobbyists, industry professionals, and many completely new to Python. During these meetups, we have two presentations by members of the group about their Python endeavours. At least one of the presentations should be aimed at a beginner level, so don't worry if you are not too familiar with Python. We invite you to bring a nametag from a conference or other event you have attended, so we can feel like we know you a little already. Should you choose to self-identify, we have coloured stickers by the door as you enter that show at a glance your level of Python experience. Feel free to bring any questions you have, or any projects you are working on, you’ll find an expert willing to help. OTOH if you *are* that expert, please let the organisers know, and you will be assured of many inspiring conversations through the evening. The doors open at 6:30pm, and the first presentation starts at 6:45pm. Everything should be wrapped up by 8:30pm. See you there! If you would like to present at a future meetup, fill out this google form and we will schedule you in https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc9EknPmnQP4SsXE4_JkDttmnh5ZbOM-A2vrNpy_0qnqnmd4g/viewform?usp=sf_link We follow the NZPUG code of conduct to create an inclusive friendly environment. https://python.nz/Page/42341 As this event occurs after a sociable dinner time, some of us stay on in the CBD after work, and grab a bite to eat before the meetup starts. Expect to see someone from the meetup at the Revive Cafe on Lorne Street from about 5:30pm - 6:15pm, and drop the organisers a line if you have another eating establishment you’d like us to mention here. Let us know if there are any problems that you are having by asking in the comments below.
