Montréal-Python's mission is to promote the growth of a lively and dynamic community of users of the Python programming language and to promote the use of the latter.

Montréal-Python also aims to disseminate the local Python knowledge to build a stronger developer community.

Montréal-Python promotes Free and Open Source Software, favors its adoption within the community, and collaborates with community players to achieve this goal.


We have regular meetings consisting of several short presentations followed by a longer main presentation. Everyone if free to attend and we often have snacks and drinks to foster a climate where discussions are welcome and appreciated. No particular skill level is required to enjoy the meetings since there is often a presentation for everyone, from new comers to experts.

Beside the regular meetings, we often organize code sprints and informal gatherings.

In 2014 and 2015 Montréal-Python will host the famous North American PyCon Conference.

We have a mailing list which is relatively low volume, but has an extremely high signal to noise ratio.  We also meet on irc, in #montrealpython on freenode.net.

We announce our meetings and other activities on the mailing list and on this blog.
