I am (a Python programmer of course :) ) studying in Chalmers,  so I 
hope I can help in anything, although I have been living in Göteborg for 
only a couple of months. From this experience I can say that some places 
to visit in the city include the Liseberg park and the islands in 
Göteborg's archipelago... they should be lovely in the summer (i live on 
one of them!)

probably the best place to search is http://www.goteborg.com/ , and of 
course the tourist information office when you arrive.. this is located 
at the Kungsportsplatsen stop.. And speaking about tram/bus stops, you 
will probably need to check out http://www.vasttrafik.se , the site of 
the company responsible for transportation within the city (tram, bus, 
ferry boats...).

and i think good clubs include excet and trädgårn, but as Magnus 
indicated, that depends on taste :)
