What we're about

PyDEN is a meetup for Python developers in the Denver Metro Area. We are one of 4 front range python meetups who come together once a year for the PyColorado Conference.

We host monthly meetups on Python topics (and sometimes non-Python topics of interest), and welcome speakers of all levels to participate and engage with our community.

These students recently graduated from Devetry's nine-month Code Forward program. The students began with no prior knowledge and are now deploying full-stack applications in Flask, Vue, and Postgres, using AWS-RDS and Heroku. Coming from a diverse set of personal and professional experiences, the students are thrilled to show off some of their most recent applications to the PyDen community. ======================== Our meetup adheres to the PyColorado Code of Conduct (https://pycolorado.org/code-of-conduct) to ensure all members attending any of our meetups feel included and heard.
