Summer is coming and Montréal-Python is taking some well earned vacations. It's been an amazing spring and what better way to end this great season of Python in Montréal than to celebrate with you over a beer or two with our friends from Benelux on Sherbrooke?
Come and share your favorite Python moments with us. We'll have a couple of tables under the name of Montréal-Python, our sponsors will be there with us, lots of Pythonistas and you too :)PyCruise 2016 or PyCon 2016
Thanks to our sponsors, we'll also have some special prizes, one (1) person will win a ticket for one of those Python event:
a) PyCruise 2016, an amazing PyCon ON A SHIP, a round trip of Python presentations and awesomeness* !
b) PyCon 2016, the biggest Python event, next year will be at Portland (OR)When:

*Please note that start point of PyCruise is from New York City, it is your own responsability to join the meeting point. More details online !
It's been a wonderful and pretty stressful 2 years in a row of PyCon in Montréal. We've took some time to rest and started thinking about our next event.
The sprints inspired ourselves and we've decided to start them back within a project night that will allow us to put our hands in the code.
The idea is to invite you, the Python Community from Montréal to participate and to code on opensource and inspiring Python Project. If you want to work and share your project with some local Pythonisthas, please let us know and we'll add your project to the list.What Work on python.org website
The Python website has been rebuilt and it's based on the Django framework. There's always things to fix and implement and we would like to participate. We are going to base our work on its github project and the tickets in openhatch.
The talks at PyCon were retranscripted live. That makes awesone data to analyse and visualize. Let's find out what was the hottest topic, for instance.Python and Openstack
Openstack is a collection of python microservices used to run a cloud cluster. This is going to be a introduction to how to contribute to the openstack community. The goal is to commit a patch to one of the Openstack community.
Take the time to read the introduction to contributing to Openstack.Other or personal projects
If you have an exciting project you want to sprint on with others, tell us when you arrive on site so we can announce it and save a space for your team (you might need to mentor newcomers on this project)! Also, as ever, if you just want to take advantage of the febrile coding atmosphere to put some love in your own projects, you're most welcome : just come and code.When

If PyCon is not enough, Montréal-Python has the solution: a meetup! Now that your first incredible day of sprints is over, we are bringing on stage some of PyCon's superstar presenters for encore presentations.
This special Montréal-Python edition will be co-organized by MTLData, DevOpsMTL and DockerMTL.
Trey Causey: Scalable Machine Learning in Python using GraphLab Create
I'll be giving an overview of how to use GraphLab Create to quickly build scalable predictive models and deploy them to production using just an IPython notebook on a laptop.
Nina Zakharenko: Technical Debt - The code monster in everyone's closet
Technical debt is the code monster hiding in everyone's closet. If you ignore it, it will terrorize you at night. To banish it and re-gain your productivity, you'll need to face it head on.
Olivier Grisel: What's new in scikit-learn 0.16 and what's cooking in the master branch.
Scikit-learn is a Machine Learning library from the Python data ecosystem. Olivier will give an overview and some demos of the (soon to be | recently) released 0.16.0 version.
Jérome Petazzoni: Deep dive into Docker storage drivers
We will present how aufs and btrfs drivers compare from a high-level perspective, explaining their pros and cons. This will help the audience to make more informed decisions when picking the most appropriate driver for their workloads.
Pierre-Yves David: Mercurial, with real python bites
In this talk, we'll go over on the advantages of Python that helped the project both in its early life when so much feature needs to be implemented, but also nowaday when major companies like Facebook bet on Mercurial for scaling. We'll also point at the drawback of choosing Python and how some work-arounds had to be found. Finally, we'll look at how the choice of Python have an impact on the user too with a demonstration of the extensions system.
Thanks also to our special sponsors for this event: Docker Inc. and LightSpeed Retail
Nicolas Kruchten: Lightning talk
Nicolas Kruchten will be giving the first ever public demo of Datacratic's Machine Learning Database (MLDB): a product which is distributed as a Docker image and which uses Python as a plugin and scripting language.When:

Good news everyone !
If you ever wanted to experience web development with Python, we are organizing a workshop next week, on March 24th. The goal of this workshop is to learn about web application development and the common best practices. The workshop will be presented in both French and English.
Don't worry, you don't need to be a Python expert but a basic knowledge of Python is needed. If you've already followed a previous introduction workshop, you know everything needed!
Technically, we are going to work on Linux and on Mac. If you are on Windows we strongly encourage you to install a virtual environment VirtualBox by following these steps.
Just grab a free ticket here.
Tuesday, the 24th of March 2015 from 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM) Pavillion Président-Kennedy Room PK-2605
