Christchurch Ruby Group: Monthly Meetup: Christmas Social

Another circumambulation around the sun almost completed, and therefore December's meetup will be our yearly social meetup. Drinks from 7pm at Pomeroys (either upstairs or in the beer garden, depending on sunshine & space available).

Also - games!.. If you have a favourite game/boardgame bring it along and we'll hopefully have time for a few games. Also, you might find out why December (which sounds like it should be the 10th month), isn't.

Thanks to all our wonderful speakers for making this year a real success! We'll be putting out a call for speakers for next year later on, but, if you want to pre-emptively put your hand up for next year, please do ;)

If you haven't already joined us on slack - please do join the https://slack.ruby.nz/ (there's a #christchurch)

Well, see you on the 21st.

Patrick & Daniel & Phil :)

New Zealand Python User Group - Christchurch: Christchurch Python Meetup

Note that as of March 2017, the meeting day has changed!

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.

PS: NZPUG's Code of Conduct applies for our local meetups and the online meetup.com group. Please read it up in case you haven't yet https://nzpug.org/code-of-conduct/
