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.

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

September Monthly Meeting

September 25, 2017, 6:00 p.m.

18:00 Pillar Technology's 'The Forge' at the Smith Brothers' Hardware Building

20:00 Brazenhead Irish Pub

Come and learn, share, grow, meet new people, and visit old friends at our monthly meeting! We'll be talking about the Python programming language and anything that intersects it, and the cool stuff you can do with it.

This month we welcome Erik Welch, Senior Software Developer at Continuum Analytics to talk about how IPython and Jupyter Notebooks have changed the way we develop, interact with, and share code in Python. He will talk about recent advances in the Jupyter ecosystem, and explore ways to enhance your Jupyter experience. Some specific examples of possible topics covered include Jupyter Notebooks, JupyterLab, JupyterHub, kernels, plugins, extensions, ipywidgets, bqplots, bokeh, dask, and more. Expect plenty of live examples and hacking!

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

Later, around 8pm, we will go to Brazenhead Irish Pub on Fifth Ave for more socializing, food, and beverages.
