Here you can find links to local user groups involved with Python, possibly one in your area.

 * [http://opag.ca Ottawa Python Author's Group], a group in Ottawa, Canada involving Python and Zope. If that link doesn't work, try [http://opag.sourceforge.net this one].
Users of the Python programming language meet periodically in so-called '''Python User Groups''' <<FootNote(Python User Groups are sometimes called PIGgies, for Python Interest Group meetings. The term PIGgies was coined by the Bay Area PIGgies group.)>>. Intermediate and advanced users share how they use the language and learn new tricks; they also welcome '''beginners''' and help them step in. It is a great place to ask for help and socialize with other people with a similar interest. Meetings are usually once every month, they are very informal and open to everyone.

There about '''400''' Python user groups '''worldwide''' in almost '''190''' cities, '''37''' countries and over '''127,000''' members. Check in these two places to find if there is already a group in your area:

 * The list below which is sorted by geographical region, country, and state in some cases.
 * A world map of [[http://python.meetup.com/|Python Meetups]] in meetup.com. Enter your country and city to list the local group if any.

If there is not a Python user group in your area, please check StartingYourUsersGroup if you are interested in organizing one.

Users of the Python programming language meet periodically in so-called Python User Groups 1. Intermediate and advanced users share how they use the language and learn new tricks; they also welcome beginners and help them step in. It is a great place to ask for help and socialize with other people with a similar interest. Meetings are usually once every month, they are very informal and open to everyone.
