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).
