West Yorkshire Python User Group

The West Yorkshire Python User Group (WYPy) have been meeting monthly since 2007. Our meetings are free, and usually include at least one talk, as well as a trip to the pub.

We discuss our meetings on the Python Yorkshire and Humberside Google Group and you can also follow us on Twitter at @WYPython.

Python/Django Workshop

Thursday April 13, 2017

James Wilson has kindly volunteered to give an overview of a Django app he's been working on recently:

A web app to manage case notes and tasks for a number of NUT officers, some of whom are "not good with computers." Needs to:

  • Be simple and easy to use
  • Let certain users see and edit other people's cases

We'll then use James' app as the basis for a Python/Django workshop.

For anyone wanting to do some homework, the project's source code is hosted on github: https://github.com/wilsonrocks/caseworkclub.

Date and Time

Thursday 13th April, starting at 7.30pm.

We will finish at about 9:00pm, and will be going to The White Swan pub afterwards.

Location

We will be meeting at Futurelabs.

Futurelabs
1 Eastgate
Leeds
LS2 7LY

From the Futurelabs web site: "If you’re walking, we’re 50 yards from the back entrance of the Victoria Quarter. Simply look left, walk to the crossroads and we’re in the building on the opposite corner (above the Gas Showrooms). Take the door to the left of the Gas Showrooms and our Reception is on the second floor."

Coming up

Nothing scheduled yet. Please check back soon.
