What's the coolest thing you've done with Python?

I learned Python by reading my own book. I wrote the Java version of "How to Think Like a Computer Scientist". Jeff Elkner translated it into Python and that's how I learned Python.

What would you like to learn in the Python world?

I am waiting for an excuse to play with Raspberry Pi.

Any particular areas of expertise outside of Python?

Data analysis and engineering education.

Introduction

I teach computer science at Olin College. I use Python in several classes, and it is my go-to language for my own projects, including Swampy. I have written several books using Python, including Think Python, Think Stats and Think Complexity.

What Allen D. is saying about this Meetup Group

Well organized group with lots of good people.
