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 (https://about.bostonpython.com/code-of-conduct) 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://about.bostonpython.com/slack

• Twitter as @bostonpython

Job postings on the Meetup.com mailing list are OK, as long as they meet the Job Posting Requirements (https://about.bostonpython.com/jobs).

NLP Study Group Session 2: Linguistics for Programmers

Needs a location

Welcome to the second session of Boston Python's NLP (Natural Language Processing) study group! This is a group where we teach each other things: every contributor chooses a topic that they don't know, learns about it, and presents what they learned to the group.

Our next session will be an overview of linguistic concepts that are useful in tackling NLP problems. We'll cover some concrete things (like how syntax can be used to predict ambiguity) some less concrete things (what is a word, really?), and a whole lot in between. After this talk, you'll be able to contextualize some of the work that NLP libraries are doing (and impress your friends at parties with some nerdy linguistics facts)*.

After the talk, we'll break out into small groups to discuss the presentation (and other NLP-related topics).

All are welcome! Come join us on the Boston Python Slack workspace if you have questions or want to know more:
