Python is a powerful agile language that surprises us by its suppleness and the ease with which we can use it to solve complex problems in just a few lines of code.

This month, we are exploring unexpected and unconventional uses of Python across many domains. We are inviting you all to Inadvertent Indentation, Monday Movember 21st at UQAM, in room SH-R810 of the Sherbrooke Pavillion.

The even is free and even thought we will not serve a four course meal, snacks will be provided. Rumor has it that there could also be some free beer.

Here is our schedule for the night:

  • 18h00: Opening
  • 18h20: Announcements
  • 18h30: First salvo
  • 19h10: Pause
  • 19h25: Second salvo
  • 20h30: Discussions and refreshments at Benelux
Our ingenious presenters will be:
