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 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.

Michael Handler will present a Python script that uses Selenium and Firefox to implement some rudimentary web scraping to monitor a web application. This script is used in conjunction with an open source monitoring application called Zabbix to monitor the operation of a web application we host for another business unit of his employer's parent company.

Jim Prior will give a little presentation on the "or" operator.
