What we're about

Welcome! Boston Python is one of the largest local Python user groups in the world. Meet other local Python developers, learners, employers (https://www.meetup.com/bostonpython/sponsors/), and enthusiasts of all kinds. All skill levels are welcome: if you are interested in Python, we are interested in you! We have a code of conduct (http://bit.ly/bospy_cc) to ensure that everyone stays happy and productive.

We have great regular events:

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

Monthly informal project nights: 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.

In addition to meeting face-to-face, we have a few other ways to stay connected:

• Slack: https://slack.bostonpython.com/

• Twitter as @bostonpython

• Boston@python.org mailing list: http://bit.ly/bospymail

Job postings on the Meetup.com mailing list are OK, as long as they meet the Job Posting Requirements (http://www.meetup.com/bostonpython/pages/Job_Posting_requirements/).

If you'd like to help financially, you can make a tax-deductible contribution at donate.bostonpython.com. (http://donate.bostonpython.com)

Presentation Night: Web Scraping


Hosted by Wayfair, with pizza sponsored by Indigo (https://www.indigoag.com/) Tonight, a deep dive into Web Scraping. Edward Stronge and Isaac Vidas will present a two-part talk about getting data from a web site by reading and parsing the HTML. This is a very popular technique, but there are pitfalls along the way. Starting from the basics, they will get you up to speed on the power of web scraping.
