Python is a programming Language. The essence of a Python meetup is to bring together Python developers and aspiring developers for knowledge sharing. Topics like new and existing technologies in Python are usually covered. The meetup helps developers to learn from one another, to train others and to help build and grow the local community.
We had our first Python/ Pyladdies meetup on the 23rd of June, 2018. The meetup was more like a follow-up event after the Django girls workshop. The Python / Pyladdies meetup was the first to be held in Akwa Ibom State. It was held in KodeHauz, Eket. There were about 30 participants in attendance. A lot of beginner related topics were covered by various speakers ranging from Introduction to Python to Building for the Next Billion Users.
A lot was learned at the meetup and there was a mini-hackathon which the participants were meant to complete within an hour. A winner emerged and was awarded accordingly. The meetup was quite interesting as most of the Python newbies had the opportunity of learning Python from scratch.
Refreshment was made available to the participants as well as stickers and T-shirts for speakers and outstanding participants at the workshop. At the end of the workshop, we had a group photograph. It is a moment to look forward to. Don’t miss out on our next meetup. See you there and invite someone!
