Last week, Mathieu Perreault and Derek Ruths gave the second McGill Python Workshop. With around 40 attendees, the event was definitely a success and you should expect another workshop soon.
Derek lets us know:
We showcased a number of libraries that ship with Python including support for working with SQLite databases, pickling objects, reading and writing CSV files, building well-formed command-line tools, and constructing applications with a full graphical user interface!
That's a nice series of events to keep an eye on.
