What we're about

PyDistrict is a group for Python enthusiasts in the Washington, D.C. area. Everyone who uses Python is welcome, whether it's on the web, with data, in embedded systems or elsewhere.

Every month we put on a talk from a speaker in the community (currently these are virtual).

Before the pandemic, we also hosted monthly Project Nights, where people cowork on their Python web projects together -- we're looking forward to being able to resume in-person events safely.

We have a Code of Conduct. You can read it here: http://pydistrict.org/conduct.html

PyDistrict™: April 27th Meetup

Online event

Blueprints for a Serpent by Taylor Bird

Bio:

Taylor Bird software developer with Excella. He has roughly a decade long background in Java programming and software design for enterprise systems. His recent focus has been on data science, and he is mostly programming in Python these days for that.

Talk:

Blueprints For a Serpent. A survey of Python variants. Let's discuss that Python is a specification for a language of which cPython is just the most popular reference implementation. We'll talk at a high level about how this is possible and then we'll cover some examples of alternate implementations of Python, what they offer and why you might want to use them.

Project Night

Location visible to members

Join us for Python Project Night!

Project Nights are informal gatherings where attendees can bring their own projects and work together (or just next to each other). We'll have at least one experienced Python web developer on hand to help less experienced people with their projects.

We host these project nights each month in addition to our normal talk meetups.

Agenda

• 6:30-7:00pm - Arrive, eat and catch up (thank Chief (http://agencychief.com/) for the food!)

• 7:00pm-8:45pm - Coworking

What could you do at project night, you ask?

• Work on your own side projects with other people doing the same

• Get help learning Python (or Django or Flask) from more experienced developers. (Or, help mentor other attendees if you're already a whiz)

• Ask for a code review for a project you've been working on by yourself

• Talk through a particular problem with someone who has solved it before

• Just hang out and have some cool conversations!

We are cross-listing this event with DC Python, so please RSVP to only one so we can get an accurate headcount.
