What we're about

The Python language is a rarity in the software industry: accessible to almost everyone, versatile across application domains and generally a joy with which to work. While enjoying Python alone is beneficial, PyRVA (https://pyrva.org) believes that Python is best enjoyed in the company of others. We're busy organizing talks, hackathons, workshops and more to help build up the Python community here in Richmond. Ideas are welcome.

PyRVA (http://www.pyrva.org/) follows the PSF Code of Conduct located here: https://www.python.org/psf/codeofconduct/

Upcoming events (4+)

Visual workflows in python

Link visible for attendees

In October, we will be joined by Dan Funk of the consulting company Sartography. He'll show us their open-source Python-based project called SpiffWorkflow.

SpiffWorkflow is a tool for interpreting and executing things that look like flow charts and spreadsheets. Specifically, SpiffWorkflow interprets Business Process Modelling Notation graphics and executes the workflow.

Dan says, "What’s great about BPMN is that you can potentially create software even a CEO can understand. Imagine having a meeting where everyone around the table actually understands what they were talking about. This is the glorious promise of BPMN...It’s a diagram that IS the software.

Join us for what is sure to be an interesting, beginner-friendly conversation!
