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 Brazenhead to enjoy good food, good drinks, and good conversation.

Visit us on meetup.com

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

This month, Neil Ludban will be presenting "From the Pyramids to Python: Architecture to cope with large projects".

We learned to break too many lines of code into functions, and then reorganize as methods on classes, but how can we remember it all as the project grows to hundreds or thousands of classes? From ancient pyramids to modern skyscrapers, see some patterns (and anti-patterns) that can be applied to our Python projects to make them orders of magnitude easier (or harder) to build and maintain.

Please RSVP so our generous host knows how much pizza to order.

Afterwards we'll be heading to Brazenhead on 5th.
