The Central Ohio Python User's Group

About Us

We are a friendly and enthusiastic group of Central Ohio Pythonistas. We meet most Thursday evenings for informal dojos, occasionally for lunch on various days of the week, and have a monthly meeting usually on the last Monday of the month. To have lunch at your favorite place, announce the time and place on the mailing list.

After our monthly meetings we like to adjourn to some nearby eatery to enjoy good food, good drinks, and good conversation.

We have code on our github repository, especially of challenges where people solved problems using Python in very different ways.

Monthly Meetings

Usually on last Monday of each month.

  • 6:00 pm to 6:30 pm: eat, socialize
  • 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm: announcements and introductions then presentations
  • 8:00 pm hard stop for presentations

Dojos

We meet most Thursday evenings:

  • from around 6pm
  • to around 8pm in person at Smokehouse Brewing Company,
  • or until around 9pm online at Gather.

Dojos are informal Python group study sessions where everyone interested in Python gathers to learn about Python, help others with Python, or just hang out. Everyone interested in Python from complete beginners, to experts, and everyone in between are welcome to the Dojos. Bring your Python questions and problems. Digressions from Python are common.

in person

We meet in person at:
Smokehouse Brewing Company

  • When you arrive, ask the greeter to seat you in the back with the Python folks.
  • Please bring your laptop and power supply. Power strips will be available.
  • Smokehouse Brewing currently closes at 8:00 p.m. so we need to pay our bills by then. We will need to be out of the building by 8:30 p.m.
  • We will attempt to connect to our Gather on-line meeting site so folks from out of town and others can still participate.
