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.

Pair Programming Game

Thursday June 2, 2016

IMPORTANT: please note the change of week, time and venue. See details below.

This month we have the rescheduled pair programming game/exercise that was supposed to happen in May.

The basic idea is to attempt to build a small app as a group, but with only two people at the computer at a time. All will be explained when you arrive!

It will be a lot of fun. As well as enlightening, surprising, and frustrating. But don't worry, it's nowhere near as scary as it sounds.

Anyone is welcome so please come along and join in (or just watch and laugh). It doesn't matter if you're just starting out with Python … in fact, having a mix of skill levels will make it more interesting.

By the end of the game, you'll be ready for a beer :).

Date and Time

Thursday 2nd June. Starting at 7.00pm.

We will finish at around 8.30pm, and will be going to The White Swan pub afterwards.

Location

We will be meeting at Future Labs:
