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).

Online Collaboration and Project Night in Gather

Online event

Online project night using Gather! The event will open at 6:30 for chit-chat, and we'll kick off officially at 6:40. Everyone is invited!

Invite link: https://gather.town/invite?token=dJIHUVIQ

Gather lets us have a space similar to a physical room with tables. We'll have tables for specific topics: Starting Out, Data Science, Machine Learning, Testing, Web, Hardware, and so on. Let us know what topic you want!

We have a Google Doc for you to see the topics and say a little about what you'd like to do: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_bBbP5tWXI9RJHwWxvZ2WNGcQOsZ8hMygJziaeBJzkM

There are no pre-determined projects, no presentations. You do not have to show anything if you don't want to. This is an open-ended opportunity to work together with like-minded people.

Hosts will be on hand help you find the right room and collaborators.

Bring ideas. Bring questions. Bring enthusiasm. Bring friends. The Boston Python Project & Collaboration Night is a time to find others with compatible interests. Code, hack, teach, learn, meet, laugh, talk: anything goes at Project Night.

All skill levels are welcome. There will be at least two rooms of beginning learners, and helpers for them. Other topics in the past have been Django, Data, Web Scraping, Hardware, Puzzles, Science, Testing, Art. Maybe you have another idea? Bring it!

Here are some Python resources to get you started: https://about.bostonpython.com/resources

Feel free to discuss ideas beforehand on our Slack: https://about.bostonpython.com/slack

We'll all be online starting at 6:30!
