What we’re about
The PyTexas Meetup is a virtual Meetup serving the Python Community of Texas. With Texas being so big and spread out, it's hard to find a meetup in your local area. The PyTexas Meetup will be a monthly virtual event, with a physical gathering happening at the annual PyTexas conference in the spring.
All members who attend the meetup are expected to follow our Code of Conduct

Speaker 1: Mason Egger
Topic: The Enters and Exits of Context Managers
Have you ever opened a file using the with keyword in Python? That little keyword is one of the many fascinating parts of the Python programming language, the Context Manager. The Python Context Manager is a tool that allows the programmer to reliably create and tear down temporary contexts within a program. This allows programmers to reduce duplicate code, improving the maintainability and reliability of the code. This talk will cover all things Context Manager, from what they are, how to build them, when to use them, and more.
Speaker 2: Pandy Knight
Topic: `def test_crash_course_with_pytest():`
What, you mean to tell me that you don't test your code?! Let's fix that right quick! In this session, let's learn how to start testing our code with pytest, Python's most popular test framework. We'll cover how to add pytest to a project, leverage mechanics like parameters and fixtures, and write tests at different levels. Bring your laptops, too, because this whole session will be live-coded!
