The Central Ohio Python User's Group

About Us

We are a friendly and enthusiastic group of Central Ohio Pythonistas. We meet every Friday 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.


We meet almost every Friday.
6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Panera Bread
4519 N High St, Columbus, OH

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. We meet in the "Community Room".

Please bring outlet strips and extension cords.

Panera's Wifi works, but is unreliable and slow. If you need big stuff, download it elsewhere before coming or bring your own Internet access.

May Monthly Meeting

May 22, 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.

Zach will give a presentation on DLL injections

He has been stuyding DLL injections for a little while now, and managed to pull it off in pure Python. He can inject python27.dll into a running process on Windows and make it execute arbitrary Python code.

He will be using RDP to connect to a Windows VM to do the demonstrations.

He intends to cover these points:

  • A brief overview of the ctypes library
  • A run through my code that performs the injection
  • A demonstration of injecting a few lines of Python code into (for example) the Windows calculator
  • A demonstration of doing the same with the whole .py files instead of individual lines.

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.
