Montréal returns glorious from Atlanta, and yes, PyCon is coming to town in 2014 and 2015. It's time to gather and exchange, celebrate and shout out loud our pride at this April's meeting, Montréal-Python 20: Delicate Decadence.

This meeting will be held at the famous SH-R810, UQAM Sherbrooke Building.

Art, creation, culinary style and a pinch of decadence will be at the rendezvous. Our main presentation will be:

  • Olivier Bélanger: Sounds Delights for Pythonistas
The simplicity of its syntax combined with its vast range of libraries makes Python a ideal environment for the development of all kind of applications. There are libraries for almost all kind of process you can imagine, from scientific calculus to image manipulation including the random numbers generation or user interface creation. Name it, you got it... except for sound. Indeed, to develop a sound application in Python, until recently one had to use an external audio engine (Csound, SuperCollider) and to communicate through a network protocol (usually OSC) in order to transmit control data, incoming from the interface, to the sound generator. The *pyo* library is now bridging this Python sound gap, delivering an audio engine and an library of objects for the design of signal processing solutions fully integrated to the language. Developing a standalone audio application in Python is now simple, pleasant and efficient.

We have some flash presentations confirmed, yet. There still room for some more. If you are interested, send an email at
