Next Meetup

Boston Python Presentation Night
DataDog will provide pizza. The Cambridge Innovation Center is providing space tonight. We have three talks of varying lengths: Stephanie Marker, Predicting the price of Ether with an LSTM RNN Using long short-term memory recurrent neural networks models (from Keras) I attempt to predict the price of the Ether cryptocurrency. The talk will be a high level overview of how to work with time series data, including data preprocessing, formatting the data as a time series, normalization, feature selection, model parameter selection, fitting a model, evaluating a model's performance, and forecasting. Michael McMahon, Using Python and Sphinx to Develop a Role Playing Game Michael Dezube, Options for parallel processing in Python Have a lot of computing to do? Maybe you can use all those CPU cores in your laptop! Or maybe not. We'll demonstrate a number of options for how to do more work on one computer from Python. Covered will be threads, multiprocessing, Cython, Numpy, and Numba.

What we're about

Public Group


Boston Python is one of the largest local Python user groups in the world. Meet other local Python developers, learners, employers, and enthusiasts of all kinds. All skill levels are welcome: if you are interested in Python, we are interested in you!

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, and the mailing list, we have a few other ways to stay connected:

• Twitter as @bostonpython

• #bostonpython IRC channel on freenode. Drop in any time to get questions answered!

• mailing list:

Job postings on the mailing list are OK, as long as they meet the Job Posting Requirements (
