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).

Python Study Group: Intro to Flask

Online event

This week we'll talk about getting up and running with flask, courtesy of Mike Combs. This is a beginner-level intro to flask - no prior knowledge is required. Hope to see you there!

In a normal week, this is a beginner-to-intermediate level group that encourages learning by way of teaching. Each presenter chooses a topic that they're unfamiliar with, researches it, and then teaches the group what they've learned. We rotate presenters and topics to keep things fresh, so if you’ve been looking for the motivation to dive into that one mysterious Python feature that you’ve seen in the codebase, this might be the group for you!

Hope to see you there!

(Is there a topic you'd like to learn about (and then teach us)? Sign up here to present at a future session: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1D1Y1hpRVUr-3Ai5Bn1LWbMMjPq7CsrIphvnkxplF2Og/edit?usp=sharing)
