What we're about
Welcome to the Greater Hartford Python Group!
Or, learn more Python.
Join us and become a more effective software architect and developer!
Welcome to the Greater Hartford Python Group--where you will meet fellow software and Python enthusiasts and professionals--as we work to build and strengthen the community of software architects and developers; Python and Python-based application developers, architects and designers; and other computing technologists in Connecticut.
Python is a fun, powerful, yet easy-to-learn programming language that is used in a wide variety of application domains in industry, and is increasingly a language of choice in computer science education due to its clear, readable syntax, natural expressiveness and versatility.
Join our group as a newcomer to Python or as an accomplished Pythonista. We hope that your participation in our group will help you and others to increase their understanding of what Python can do, the best practices to apply when using Python and Python-based tools, and generally, how to be a more productive, more effective and more knowledgeable software architect and developer.
Please do not hesitate to share your ideas with us and help steer our group towards becoming an invaluable source of information and networking opportunities. We hope you will find our group to be a passionate and fun group which is enthusiastic to grow and help all those interested in Python and software development--beginners, journeymen and experts--by sharing our collective knowledge, expertise, experiences and ideas.

This does not only extend to members to local Greater Hartford Python Group communities, but to anyone who chooses to become involved in the larger Greater Hartford Python Group community of users, developers and integrators through events or interactions.
Harassment includes offensive verbal/electronic comments related to personal characteristics or choices, sexual images or comments in public or online spaces, deliberate intimidation, bullying, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks, IRC chats, electronic meetings, physical meetings or other events, inappropriate physical contact, or unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing or bullying behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, representatives of the community may take reasonable action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender, expulsion from any Greater Hartford Python Group event, or expulsion from mailing lists, IRC chats, discussion boards and other electronic communications channels to resolve the issue. This may include expulsion from Greater Hartford Python Group Meetup group membership.
