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.
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:
