The Melbourne Python Users Group

The Melbourne Python Users Group normally meets on every first Monday of the month (except January). We are currently trialling a new venue: VLSCI Seminar Room, 700 Swanston Street, Carlton.

The Melbourne Python Users Group meetings are organised by the community itself. The current organisers include Ed Schofield and Juan Nunez-Iglesias. Other organisers past and perhaps present include Javier Candeira, Graeme Cross, Tennessee Leeuwenburg, and RichardJones.

Next Meeting

Monday, 2016-06-06, 6:00pm at Hub Melbourne, Ground Floor, 673 Bourke Street, Melbourne CBD. (Please come to the side entrance on Godfrey Street).'

Talks:

followed by dinner & drinks at a local restaurant.

If you would like to give a talk, please email mailto:jni.soma@gmail.com, mailto:ed@pythoncharmers.com or the mailing list!

Mailing List

We also communicate about the meetings and about anything Python via our mailing list.

Newcomers are always welcome to attend or write to the mailing list, we're a friendly bunch!

We have a policy about job offers on the mailing list:

  • As long as it's a Python-related job offer by the hiring company and not by an intermediary recruiter, you can just send it to the mailing list.
  • If it's not Python-related, or the poster of the job ad is a recruiter who won't mention the company that will be doing the hiring, please just use Seek or Monster, and don't write to the mailing list.

Code of conduct

Though we are not affiliated with Linux Australia or Pycon AU, we've chosen to follow their Code of Conduct for our meetings. Not because we've ever had any problem in the past, but so that we know what to do if any problem should arise in the future.

Meeting topics

If you're not sure on a topic, or don't want to give a presentation, perhaps you could give us an idea of topics or areas that you would like to hear about - that way we can encourage people who have that particular area of expertise, but who might be wavering. Some topics that have been suggested are:

  • Django, Flask, web2py, zope, web/CGI
  • Data analysis: pandas, scikit-learn, numpy, ...
  • Science / engineering in Python
  • Visualization: 2D and 3D
  • PIL, pygame, pyopengl
  • PyQt, wxPython

  • pypi, distutils, virtualenv, venv, conda
  • PyPy, Cython, IronPython, CPython internals, bytecode hacking

  • Databases, Unit Testing, Patterns
  • Devops, Cloud Computing
  • ... if you are interested in a particular topic, add it here!

CANCELLED - First meetup of the new year: Tue 10th January, Mark Atwood Presenting

Unfortunately Mark Atwood has had to cancel his appearance due to travel problems. With most regulars still on holidays and limited response to a call for alternative presentations, this meeting has regrettably been cancelled.

"Platform as a Service" or PaaS is a popular buzz-word in Cloud Computing. But what does it mean, and how can you use it? OpenShift by Red Hat is a free-as-in-beer and soon to be free-as-in-speech PaaS platform that supports several open-source application server environments, including JavaEE6, Python, Ruby, PHP, and Perl. This demo will show you how to sign up for OpenShift, install and use the command-line tools to create an application, and how to use git to download, modify, and upload your own WSGI and Python applications. You can use your WSGI framework of choice, including Django, Flask, and Bottle.

I'd like to quickly shoot through an outline presentation/workshop I am giving at Linux Users Victoria Beginner's Workshop later in May, I am not a Python programmer but I'm presenting a 2-3 hour workshop for programming neophytes and currently I think Python is the language of choice.

Looking for feedback and suggestions on my approach.
