Welcome to the Intermediate Python Workshop!

Date: Saturday, July 28th, 2012
Time: 10:30 am - 4:30 pm
Location: Microsoft New England R&D Center, One Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA 02142
Audience: Intermediate Python programmers
Description: Level up your Python through your choice of a dozen bite-sized projects that introduce you to practical applications of the language. We’ll provide the projects and friendly helpers; you bring a laptop and enthusiasm. You’ll rotate through the projects that interest you the most at your own pace, and we’ll have breaks for lightning talks on awesome Python libraries and applications.

We’ll have bite-sized projects on the following topics, and more:

  • Building Web Applications with Django
  • Interacting with a Database in Python
  • Data Analysis with Matplotlib
  • The Twitter API
  • Regular Expressions and Cheating at Words with Friends


To attend the workshop, please RSVP through the Boston Python user group. You'll need to create a account to RSVP. If you RSVP and then decide that you aren't attending, please update your status through the interface so we can notify someone from the waitlist.
