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.
Usually on last Monday of each month.
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.
Please bring outlet strips and extension cords.

This month, Harry Lindner will be talking about building a search engine in Python. Please help him out by suggesting a search topic here: https://goo.gl/forms/6vg3RxcC189SZx1K3
Sometimes you want something specific, but ctrl+f and Google are failing you. Have no fear, you can build your own search engine. We are going to build a search engine using flask (website), scrapy (web scraper) /pdfminer (pdf scraper), whoosh (text indexer / search), and Heroku (host). The code and demo will be posted online.
The talk answers 3 questions: Why would you do this? How do you do this? What are the results? Then it’s open questions.
We are taking suggestions for search topics. Please submit ideas here: https://goo.gl/forms/6vg3RxcC189SZx1K3
If there is time left, Travis Risner will continue talking about curio (an async library in Python) by example.
Please RSVP so our generous host knows how much pizza to order.
