 West Yorkshire Python User Group Meeting - Thursday. 8 September.

About the meeting

We'll be arriving at Old Broadcasting House from about 6:30 onwards
for coffee and vaguely Python related chat.  At 7:30 will be two
talks, which are expected to last for an hour or so.  After that we
will head to a pub for more geeky chat.

The meetings are always good fun, and everyone of any level of
experience or interest in Python is extremely welcome.  Bring a friend!

Talk: "Moving to Python 3" - Nick Efford

Nick will be talking about Python 3, covering the differences from
Python 2, and why he believes it's a better language.

Nick is a lecturer at the University of Leeds, and teaches programming
using Python, so he's bound to have some interesting perspectives on
this subject - it's definitely one not to miss!

Experience Level:
 The talk should be suitable for anyone with a little experience with

Of Interest To:
 This talk will be of particular interest to anyone who is interested
 in using Python as a language for teaching, or anyone who is
 considering switching to Python 3.

Talk: "Using the SciPy toolset for interactive analysis" - Tony Simpson

Tony will be talking about his use of IPython, SciPy and MatplotLib
for interactive analysis of logfiles.

These tools have been developed in the scientific community for
analysing data and running computational simulations.  It will be
interesting to see how they can be applied to a different domain.

Experience Level:
 This talk should be suitable for everyone.

Of Interest To:
 This talk will be of particular interest to people who are
 interested in analysis and people who are interested in real world
 applications of Python.
