Greater Hartford Python Group
Welcome to the Greater Hartford Python Group--where you will meet fellow software and Python enthusiasts and professionals--as we work to build and strengthen the community of software architects and developers; Python and Python-based application developers, architects and designers; and other computing technologists in Connecticut.
Join our group as a newcomer to Python or as an accomplished Pythonista. We hope that your participation in our group will help you and others to increase their understanding of what Python can do, the best practices to apply when using Python and Python-based tools, and generally, how to be a more productive, more effective and more knowledgeable software architect and developer.
