- Packaging and Distribution
This month we'll be talking about packaging and distribution. Jace Browning will show us a demo of using poetry to upload a package to PyPI and pipx to download and install that package into an isolated environment. Ben Rousch will talk about various strategies you can use for distributing your Python applications. Afterwards, we go out for drinks and dinner at the nearby HopCat brewery.
- Cloudless Home Automation with Python
This month, Jed will introduce us to Home Assistant, an open source, RaspberryPi-based, self-hosted home automation platform written in Python. We'll also discuss changes to the pay structure and RSVPs on Meetup.com and what to do about it. Afterwards, we'll go out for the usual drinks and dinner at the nearby HopCat brewery.
- MicroPython In Action
We'll be talking about MicroPython - a slimmed-down Python for embedded devices - and we'll have a few demos of it in action. If you've created a project that uses MicroPython or CircuitPython, feel free to bring it and show it off! Afterwards, we'll go out for drinks and dinner at the nearby HopCat brewery.
- This is How I Python
This month we'll be showing off our development workflows. Do you have a useful Python configuration in your favorite editor? Have you discovered any handy plugins you want to share? Or maybe you like to work primarily in the shell and have it customized to boost productivity. Anyone who has something to show off should plan on speaking for no more than 15 minutes so that everyone gets a chance. We'll cycle back to let folks present more than once as time allots. After the event, we'll go out for drinks and dinner at the nearby HopCat brewery.
