About Us

The Front Range Pythoneers is an active Python users group in Boulder, Colorado, USA.


We hold a regular monthly meeting every third Wednesday. But perhaps the best part about our group is that we don't just talk about how to use Python, we also do things together. We share our stories on what works and what doesn't at our meetings. Our presentations often have a hands-on component. And to truly make it hands-on, we sprint together almost every month, usually the first Saturday. The next sprint is on IPython1.

We also have adopted Oracle support in Django. Look for an upcoming minisprint on DjangoOracle to squash the remaining bugs.

Future possibilities include holding an occasional BoulderJam to play with an exciting new technology together, and helping pair mentors with aspiring Pythoneers.

Canceled! We were going to plan the JythonSprint and see some demos. But a blizzard intervened. Fortunately, we should be able to do all of that instead in January.

Meeting: November 15, 2006

This was a fun meeting! Even if Jill's has increasingly been high decibel. But we really can't complain about the success of our venue.

Please help expand this local guide! (Also feel free to remove yourself from this list, if that makes sense personally.)


There are some other great groups in the area that we interact with on a periodic basis. Shared membership helps here!

Please add your favorite group here if it seems relevant to local Pythoneering.


We (collectively) are the maintainers of Django's Oracle support. Matt Boersma is the driving force of this support.
