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 1,637 Python user groups worldwide in almost 191 cities, 37 countries and over 860,333 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 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.
There are also a number of "In House Users Group" within some, (mostly larger), companies - while these are normally closed to anybody who does not work for the company your company may already have one or you may wish to start one. In either case you may find the information at TipsForInHouseUserGroups useful.
