Boise Area Python Users Group (BAPUG) meets monthly to share new ideas and learn more about the Python programming language. We enlist the help of intermediate and advanced users to share how they use the language, along with tips and tricks for others.
We welcome beginners, and our goal is to be helpful and nurturing to all. We are an open community, and we do not discriminate against anyone, for any reason, nor do we tolerate those that do.
We hope to grow BAPUG into a vibrant community, with strong local participation. We want BAPUG to be the best place to learn and share about Python and Python related topics.
Since the founding members of the group also have web development experience and interests, BAPUG will also include talks about web frameworks, including Django, Flask, Pylons, etc. Python is a rich language, and is used a many areas, so we hope to have talk covering NLP, Computer vision, Game programming, 3D Animation, numerical programming, and any other areas where Python is used.
Due to Treefort and BSU spring break, the meeting has been delayed for a week until the following Wednesday. I apologize if this causes difficulty for you. It may also make things easier, so hopefully, that is the case.
Come join us for some Python fun. March madness will just be getting started, so let's meet before it gets too far along.
Eric Akert will be giving a talk:
Topic: Data Analysis with Pandas, BeautifulSoup, and Matplotlib
A quick run through on how to pull down, analyze, and display data using some popular Python libraries.
We will also have an opportunity for anyone to give a lightning talk. Lightning talks are < 5 minutes but could be as short as 1. Show us something cool/interesting -- even if only you think it is. Tantalize the group with some Python anecdote, or a nifty discovery. Here is a link for information if this is brand new to you:
