PuPPy Programming Night

Come to work on your Python project, join a project, discuss Python-things, get help or give help. Bring hardware, software or anything that you’re enjoying working on.
Please sign in at the front desk when you arrive and then come join us in the 2nd Floor coworking space. We ask that attendees show up no earlier than 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the meetup to allow Galvanize time to fully prepare for our event.
See you there!
