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.

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

Dojos are informal Python group study sessions. Complete beginners, experts, and everyone else are welcome to the Dojos. Bring your Python questions and problems. Digressions from Python are common.

Smokehouse Brewing's has improved their Wifi. When it works, it is reasonably fast. Sometimes it still cuts out so if you need big stuff, download it before coming.

Tech Community Holiday Party 2019

The Columbus Tech Community has an incredible tradition: throw a holiday party. We all get together, find a charity, a unique venue, some awesome catering, exceptional entertainment and open a bar. This year, we're doing it again for the sixth year. And thanks to you, it's going to be incredible.

Some history:

  • * 2014 was our first year at Lumos Interactive with over 100 registered.
  • * In 2015, we had 11 user groups and sold out CoverMyMeds at 250.
  • * In 2016, we had 19 user groups, two bands, and sold out the CD102.5 Big Room Bar at 186.
  • * 2017, we sold out Hopewell Works three times totaling 433 folks registered.
  • * 2018, sold out Hopewell Works again at 434 with 36 groups participating.

This year, we attempted to find a bigger venue at Root Insurance's new event space and expect to sell out again. The event will be Wednesday December 11.
