PYPTUG meeting - February 25th

PYthon Piedmont Triad User Group meeting

Come join PYPTUG at out next meeting (February 25th 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 will start at 5:30pm.

We will open on an Intro to PYPTUG and on how to get started with Python, then with News from the community, PYPTUG activities and members projects.

Main talk: venv

The main talk this month will be "venv".

Chris Calloway will present venv, the new virtual environment creation module included with Python 3.3:

Lightning talks!

At this point, one has been scheduled:

  • The Gimp: how to write a plugin in 10 minutes - Francois Dion 
We will have some time for extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration. If you'd like to do one, some suggestions of talks were provided here, if you are looking for inspiration. Or talk about a project you are working on.

We'll then wrap up the meeting.
