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 (http://bit.ly/bospy_cc) 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:
Hosted by PTC (https://ptc.com/), pizza sponsored by Formlabs (https://formlabs.com/)
Two speakers, in PTC's amazing showcase of CAD and 3D printing technologies.
Kostya Nazarenko: Teaching old CAD new tricks with Python
The experience of integrating Python interpreter into Creo, a thirty-years-old CAD application: why, what, how.
Bathsheba Grossman: A Rhino, a Python and a Grasshopper Walk Into a Bar (3D Design with Python in Rhinoceros)
This talk is about what happened when a sculptor decided to stop modeling and start generating. Rhinoceros® is a 3D CAD program with lots of scripting options, including Python and a node programming language called Grasshopper. Bathsheba will talk about some ways to build and manipulate 3D objects with these, and show some art she's been working on. See Bathsheba's work at http://bathsheba.com
