Python User Groups are sometimes called PIGgies, for Python Interest Group meetings. The term PIGgies was coined by the Bay Area PIGgies group.

If there isn't an organized user group for your area listed on this page, check the list of Python Meetups and see if there's a Meetup in your area.

Starting and Running a User Group

There are two mailing lists for organizers of user groups, if you are interested in starting and running a user group:

(1) The Group-organizers mailing list supports people starting and running user groups.

(2) The Usergroup-advocacy mailing list is looking at building tools and resources useful for user groups.

Also, please consider posting news from your user group on the Python User Group Blog!

You may draw on the PythonSpeakers page to help find speakers.
