About PUPC

The Princeton University Python Community was founded as an initiative to simply talk about Python. We meet every two weeks, for tutorials, demos, and help sessions. Come along, we bring cookies. We were cofounded by Paul and Quentin in December 2013, and are hoping to expand in size and scope.

We currently have over one hundred and fifty members from over twenty academic departments and centers around campus. We have a great mix of undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, faculty, and staff.

Meetings

Our meetings are held in the Visualisation Laboratory, within the Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering, inside Lewis Science Library ( LL 346 ). We hold them every two weeks on Thursdays at 15:00, and they usually last for one hour. You can see what’s coming up on our calendar of events, although we usually only have abstracts about a week before the session occurs. Information on our past sessions is also available, including code and slides used during the sessions.

If you would like to lead a session, we’d love to hear from you ! Contact us on pypc@princeton.edu, or let us know at our next session. We encourage open code, and so we keep all code from previous sessions on our Github repository.

Sponsors
