PYPTUG Meeting - January 26th

PYthon Piedmont Triad User Group meeting

Come join PYPTUG at out next monthly meeting (January 26th 2015) 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. Monthly meetings are in addition to our project nights (our next project night is this Wednesday the 21st).


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.

This month we will have a main talk followed by some lightning talks, including one on the 3D and Video editing software called "Blender3D"..

Main Talk

by Don Jennings
Title: "IPython, You Python"

BioDon Jennings first developed an interest in python earlier in the century and now gets to use it daily as he does software engineering at Inmar working on digital promotions.

Get ready to be Interactive with Python as we cover IPython, especially the IPython Notebook:

- engage in hands-on demos
- explore widgets
- share those notebooks

 Lightning talks! 

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.

  1. In a corporate environment, it has been observed that to achieve success, you need to have people working in unison in the form of teams to work towards a common goal. Frequent corporate team building activities really help in increasing coordination among employees.
