1. What's coming up in 2.7
Brian Curtin
With 2.7 likely being the end of the 2.x line, come see what's in
store for the upcoming release. Changes to unittest, introduction of
the argparse module, and a whole host of 3.1 features are here to ease
your eventual transition into the wonderful world of Python 3.

module. It was started at Pycon 2010.

About the group
ChiPy is made up of people of all levels of programming and Python
knowledge. At every meeting we have had both beginning programmers,
people who are just starting to use Python, as well as experienced
Python programmers. Don't be intimidated about coming to a meeting.

Note that ChiPy is not a formal organization. We collect no dues,
elect no officers, and keep no roster. Signing up for the mailing list
carries no obligation. Nor does showing up at the meetings. Nor, at
least so far, does anything else we have done, although we always
appreciate it when our presenters show up. (They usually do!)
