New Zealand Python User Group - Christchurch: Christchurch Python Meetup

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

Every meetup we have one of us presenting a talk about anything that relates to Python programming language.

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

Before and after the talk, an informal conversation, usually over a pint of beer, takes place.

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

I'll see you on Thursday!

Yours,

Marek Kuziel
