Project Night!

Winston Salem project night

We are continuing our monthly project night. We've also added this event to our meetup page:

This month it will be the 3rd wednesday of the month.

That's the 20th of November.


3rd Wednesday of the month, 6pm
November 20th 2013


2650 Pilgrim Ct, 
Winston-Salem, NC 27106


Do you have a project you want to show off? Or do you need a second set of eyes on your code? Would you like to hack on an open source project? Perhaps you need help getting a module on a specific platform? Don't have a project but would like to help others or to learn more Python?
Whatever the case may be, project nights are your opportunity to get some help or to help others, so bring your laptop (or Raspberry Pi or whatever device that can run Python) and let's get things going. One project this month will be playing with the Pi Lite.

PYPTUG Meeting - November 25th

PYthon Piedmont Triad User Group meeting

Come join PYPTUG at out next meeting (November 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, PYPTUG activities and members projects, then on to News from the community. After that, on to our main talk.

Main talk: Python Wheels - Sharing your labor of love

by Francois Dion

"Talking about packaging your Python code, making it available on PyPI, and talking about Python Wheels".

Lightning talks!

After the main talk, 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.
