PYPTUG meeting - January 28th

PYthon Piedmont Triad User Group meeting

Come join PYPTUG at out next meeting (January 28th 2013) to learn more about the Python programming language, modules and tools. Python is the perfect language to learn if you've never programmed before, and at the other end, it is also the perfect tool that no expert would do without.


Meeting room will be open at 5:00pm, giving some time to settle down, meet and greet and to talk Python.

We will officially start the meeting at 5:30pm.

After PYPTUG introductions and related news, we will have various presentations. The main talk this month will be of interest for all those who are ASP.NET or C# programmers looking to expand their tool set, and all those who use Windows for Python development or deployment:

CPython with Visual Studio

Will Sams will talk about Python development under Windows, using Python Tools for Visual Studio.

Lightning talks!

Some time is allocated for lightning talks. Already committed for the 28th:

  • Python(X,Y) - to be confirmed
  • There and back again: Remote Processes via Paramiko - Ryan Twombly
  • Real world connections - Don Jennings
  • Brython: Python Utopia? - Francois Dion

If you want to give one (you can choose a 5 or 10 minutes lightning talk), do let us know as soon as possible on the PYPTUG mailing list (we ask PYPTUG members to also join this list):

Some suggestions of talks were provided here, if you are looking for inspiration.

We'll then wrap up the meeting.

Auditorium open at 5pm, meet and greet
Meeting starts 5:30PM until 7:30PM at the latest


Note the change of venue this month, the Kernersville location was not available. It is still close to High Point and Greensboro, near I-40 / US-52:

Winston Salem Southside Library

Map this

It is close to the I-40 and Peters Creek (and US-52 too). If you take
the Silas Creek exit on I-40, turn left on Buchanan and go up until
you get to the library on the left. If you are on Peters Creek Pkwy, turn
on Brewer (on the side where Parkland High School is) and veer left on
Buchanan. Library is on the right.
