I really liked the course since it offered a lot of information in a structured way. I especially found it helpful to see the different techniques "in action".

We met on August 16 at 8:00 pm at the training center of Python Academy in Leipzig, Germany.
Stefan Schwarzer gave a very interesting presentation about his Python module ftputil. This module provides a user-friendly interface to FTP client functionality. The interface is modeled after the built-in modules os, os.path and shutil. Therefore, remote files and directories on FTP-servers can be accessed very similarly to local files.

After the discussion we did some workshop preparation. The fine tuning of the program formatting was done as well as printing and folding of fliers. The discussion about how to best run the workshop yielded useful results.

The next meeting will be on October 10. The regular date would be September12, but this day is very close to the workshop, so that in a way the workshop replaces the meeting.
