Here are the invites for your calendars:
That being said I want to try something different. I would like to do a "call for papers" for this meeting. These "papers" could be anything, an intro to a library/framework, a "war story", a simple tutorial, live code, questions, etc.
Below is a Google form for your submission of talks. I hope to see you all at our meeting!

New Meetings Schedule

Hi everybody!

prPIG will be changing it's meetings to a once a month, third thursday of the month schedule. We believe that this way it'll be simpler for our members and those interested in joining to plan ahead.

Our next meeting will be October 17, 2013 at 7:00 pm at our usual location (yes it's the third thursday of the month). Check out our G+ event.

See you there!

I can haz Python introz?

Hello once again!

At our last workshop we had a great Introduction to Python talk. Afterwards though more and more people asked for more and more intro style talks / tutorials. Well even though we would give you all the intro tutorials you want we also have to carry on. We will not be giving intro to Python tutorials for a while, but that doesn't mean they aren't out there and that prPIG won't help you get them!
Teaching some Python!
We had our helper pythons slither through the internets to find some great intro to Python videos for you!

Google's Python Class:
Pycon 2013:
Hope you enjoy them and happy coding!

Two quick things to talk about...

Greetings fellow Pythonistas! We got two cool things to talk about!

First prPIG is hosting a Sprints and Workshop day this saturday October 12, 2013. Our workshop will be focused on beginning and intermediate python users. Our other track will be Python sprints.

Sprints in the Python world are a get together for 3 to 5 days of programmers interested in working on an open source project. In our case our sprints will be 1 day long. These are recommended for intermediate to advanced Python devs but are open to all!

Currently we need more attendees, sprint projects, and tutorials for the workshops. If you have ideas, want to give a tutorial, or want to participate please check out:

Second at prPIG we've been getting many request on teaching beginning Python. Although this is a group interest and we are giving a Starting off with Python tutorial at our workshop, we think some people do this better than us. You know like the folks at Coursera! Coursera just open what looks to be a great course: An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python and I invite everyone who is interested in beginning with Python to not only come to our workshop but also enroll.

During the week we will be posting the confirmed tutorials and sprints for our Sprints and Workshop day.
