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.

Coding Session - Porting Restish to Python 3

Thursday March 14, 2013

This month we have decided to do some good for the world, by porting Matt Goodall's web framework Restish to Python 3. Matt is a member of the group, so we'll have all the context we could hope for.

You can find the source for Restish here and the early work on porting it to Python 3 here.

Don't worry if you're new to Python 3 (a lot of us are), or even to Python, we'll muddle through and figure it out!

You should probably bring a laptop with Python 2.6 or higher and Python 3.3 installed if you have one available.

Date and Time

Thursday 14 March, from 6:30pm.

We're starting earlier this month to give us a little more time. Don't worry about turning up after the start, it's fully expected that some people will be later.

Location

We will be meeting at the offices of The Test People:

Floor 3
Albion Court
Albion Place
Leeds
West Yorkshire,
LS1 6JL

You will need to call Peter on <removed> for access, as we can't hear the buzzer at the door.

Coming up

  1. Thursday March 2 - Becoming Polyglot - Lorna Mitchell
