New Zealand Python User Group - Christchurch: Christchurch Python Meetup

Our meetups are always first Tuesday of a month at the Catalyst IT office above Pomeroys Pub.

We usually have a talk about anything that relates to Python programming language. Some months we run team coding challenges (aka "dojos"). These will be announced beforehand.

If you have a question about Python on or are stuck with some Python project, feel free to bring it up at the meetup. There will be people around who will be happy to help.

Doors open at 5:30pm, talk starts at 6pm.

At the start and end of the meetup, an informal conversation takes place, usually over a pint of beer.

Do not hesitate to pass this information around to whomever you think may be interested to hear and discuss all things Python.
