PYthon Piedmont Triad User Group meetingCome join PYPTUG at out next meeting (October 27th 2014) 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.
WhatMeeting 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.
This month we will have a tutorial review followed by a main talk.
Internet Tutorial ReviewContinuing on the review last month of Gizeh (Cairo for Tourists), this month we will review an Internet tutorial on creating digital coupons: "Branded MMS coupon generation", and a few ways that this could be made better. This should be of interest to many: mobile devs, devops, infrastructure architects, web app devs, marketers, CIO/CTOs.

He will also review some specific cases in different fields, and what kind of changes had to be done, such as the case of the MMA software, a "Band in a box" style python program that let's you create full midi scores from basic chords, with Python 2 or 3.
