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.
This month we're meeting at Sky's offices in Leeds Dock. Doors will open at 6:30. The meeting will be in Sky 2. Please note this WYPy is on the 3rd Thursday of the month and not the usaul 2nd Thursday.
Google's DeepMind has recent demonstrated it can beat pro player at StarCraft 2 (SC2). Neural networks are maybe too complicated to start off with but SC2 has an API that can be used to create bots (programs that play a game). In this event we will explore how SC2 is controlled from Python and try to write bots.
There should be no need to set anything up before hand yourself as the plan is to use a web environment for the programming and simulation. But if you are interested you could have look at the resources linked from https://github.com/Blizzard/s2client-proto and https://github.com/Dentosal/python-sc2.
Please come along and have fun!
Bring a laptop if you want to code or you can colaborate with others.
Thursday 18 April, from 6:30 pm. Start around 7:00 pm. Pub afterwards.
You will need to sign in at Sky 2 reception.
Nothing scheduled yet. Please check back soon.
