The Winnipeg Python Users Group

Welcome! We are Python users in and around Winnipeg, Manitoba.

We meet monthly, typically to listen to a presentation and learn from each other's experience programming in Python. We have members at all levels of experience from expert to novice, and our discussions aren't tied to any particular operating system or platform - so all are welcome. There is no charge to attend the meetings or to be a member of the Winnipeg Python Users Group.

Feel free to join our mailing list or view the archives.

Meeting Times and Location

Meetings are held the fourth Wednesday of the month from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 or 9:30 p.m. They are held at the University of Winnipeg in Room 3M56.

Room 3M56 at the UW is on the third floor of Manitoba hall. To reach this room, head up the main escalators in Centennial Hall to the 3rd floor, turn right to head east into Manitoba hall, turn left down the hallway and look for the room on your right.

If the schedule below is stale it doesn't mean we're inactive. We've occasionally been 2 months behind updating it, but we're still meeting!
