At Montréal-Python, everyone is welcome. As the Python Software Foundation says it very eloquently:

In silence we are complicit. To eradicate racism, xenophobia, and all other forms of inequality, we must take action. It is our responsibility to use our platforms to amplify the voices of the oppressed and marginalized.

We ask today – and always – that the Python community comes together in support of the Black community, and makes Black voices heard.

Black lives matter.

We have a code of conduct at Montréal-Python to ensure that our meetings take place in the utmost respect. Furthermore, we actively seek people of all minorities to share with us their experiences and their knowledge.

Thanks to the excellent tools that we added to our quiver, our virtual meetings are fast evolving towards a formula that is almost as satisfying at face-to-face meetings.

Our last meeting, Harmonious Serinette, featured a number of interactions: live demos, questions, and a video gathering on Online Town. Many of our Pythonistas raised their glass together after the talks to discuss Python and shared strategies for dealing with the lockdown. It wasn't quite as good at the happy hour at Benelux, but we're getting close.

For those you have missed it, the recording is available on Youtube:

Montréal-Python 78 – Ingenious Rewrite – is going to be on June 29 at 5:30 PM. Carl Meyer, member of the Django core advisory team and developer at Instagram is going to talk about Typing in Python with a case study from a large code base.

We are looking for speakers to present their Python projects, to tell us how they use Python in their own projects and share with us their favourite productivity tips. You have an idea for a talk? Let us know by email. Talks can be of any duration between 5 and 20 minutes. We will accept all reasonable proposals as they come, up until the program is fully booked.
