Announcing a new Meetup for The Central Ohio Python Users Group!

What: Python HOP -- Hands-On Python

When: Monday, May 24, 2010 6:30 PM

1275 Kinnear Rd
Columbus, OH 43212

Meet fellow Pythonistas. Learn about the Python programming language.
Share your experiences with Python and how it has helped you. Have
fun! All are possible as a member of the Central Ohio Python User's

This month you are going to get your hands dirty, so bring your
laptop, and your installation of Python! We will have three
Pythonistas take you from zero to 60 in three different areas, with
the end result being three simple working applications.

Neil Ludban will be demonstrating Python's support for the BSD sockets
API (even on Windows) and use it to build the echo client and server
apps from chapter 5 of W. Richard Stevens' book "UNIX Network
Programming, Volume I".

Miles Groman will be talking about X and Python. He will walk through
implementing dmenu in Python.

Mark Erbaugh will be showing off SQLAlchemy, specifically the Object
Relational Mapper portion. He will show how to use SQLAlchemy to
create a simplified batch-oriented, double entry general ledger engine
from an accounting system.

Pop and snacks will be provided by Intellovations. We also have a
stack of O'Reilly provided Python books in our library that can be
checked out.
