What customers say ...


Mike is an outstanding teacher ... I will look for his classes in the future.

Jennifer Trasti, Software/Systems Engineer, Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, NM, USA more...


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".

Alexander Bittner, gocept GmbH & Co. KG about the course "Python for Programmers" more...


Extremely valuable. We covered so much good material.

Maura Connolly, Seagate about the course "Python for Scientists and Engineers" more...


We had a wide range of Python experience in our group and each person gained something valuable to take away....

Dr. Ryan Woodard, Chair of Entrepreneurial Risks, ETH ETH Zurich, Switzerland more...


A useful and quite comprehensive introduction to Python.

Leipzig Python User Group - Archive 2011

Fifty Eighth Meeting, Tuesday January 11, 2011

We continued to work on our presentation at Chemnitzer Linuxtage 2011. We got nice material from pyCologne, the user group n Cologne that we can use.

We looked at co-routines and concurrent programming. Python's generators with their ability to take messages from outside are built into the language and help programming in this style.

The next meeting will be on February 15, 2011.

Note: This will be one week later than or regular second Tuesday of the month.

Fifty Nineth Meeting, Tuesday February 15, 2011

We looked at OpenCV for Python , a very interesting library for tracking movements. We had a variety of Python topics to talk about.

The next meeting will be on March 15, 2011.

Note: This will be one week later than or regular second Tuesday of the month.

Sixtieth Meeting, Tuesday March 15, 2011

For some time we, the Leipzig Python User Group, has contacts with Leipzig Rails community. This meeting was a joint event at Topics Maps Lab in Johannisgasse, Leipzig. We wanted to intensify the exchange between both groups and to get to know new technologies and solutions.

The next meeting will be on April 19, 2011.

Sixty First Meeting, Tuesday April 19, 2011

This time folks form Leipzig Ruby User Group Leipzig on Rails`_ came to our meeting at the traditional location Python Academy. Christoph Petschnig introduced Rails 3. We had intensive discussion about similarities nd difference between Ruby and Python as well as between Rails and Django. All in all a very successful event.

The next meeting will be on May 10, 2011.

Sixty Second Meeting, Tuesday May 10, 2011

We talked about several "smaller" topics such as some Python packages, conferences and a bunch of other things.

The next meeting will be on June 14, 2011.

Sixty Third Meeting, Tuesday June 14, 2011

Andreas Bunkahle talked about OpenCV and Python:

OpenCV is a very powerful and fast image processing and computer vision library. The combination of OpenCV 2.1 and Python 2.6 is stable and works reliably. Features include face and pattern recognition, web cam control, and morphing among many others.

The next meeting will be on July 12, 2011.

Sixty Fourth Meeting, Tuesday July 12, 2011

We discussed about Python IDEs, their functionality as well as their advantages and disadvantages. Other topics included Cython and NumPy. The forthcoming PyCon DE was another theme during our meeting.

The next meeting will be on August 9, 2011.

Sixty Fifth Meeting, Tuesday August 9, 2011

Mike Müller demonstrated the use of ctypes with an example. Because ctypes is part of the standard library und pretty easy to use, it is really good way to access DLLs. If you work with Python 3 you need to take care to handle strings, which are unicode by default. Don't forget to encode and decode them before and after exchange with the DLL if the strings in the DLL are ASCII, which is rather common.

The next meeting will be on September 27, 2011.

Sixty Sixth Meeting, Tuesday September 27, 2011

Mike Müller talked about HDF5 and how to use it from Python. This sparked a lively discussion about details and border cases for HDF5 usage from everybody learned something new.

The next meeting will be on November 8, 2011. We will evaluate PyCon DE 2011. Many members of our user group were deeply involved in the organization of this first German PyCon.

Sixty Seventh Meeting, Tuesday November 8, 2011

We evaluated PyCon DE 2011. Many members of our user group were deeply involved in the organization of this first German PyCon.

The conference was a great success. About 50% of the participants gave feedback, which was overwhelmingly positive. The organization was super. The presentations and tutorials were really good. We received a few suggest what to improve that should be considered next year. Though, some of the suggestions of opposite goals.

We decided to apply for PyCon DE 2012. To have a conference at the same place twice seems to work well (see PyCon US, EuroPython and EuroSciPy). The PyCon DE 2011 makes a good reference in any case.

The next meeting will be on December 13, 2011.

Sixty Eighth Meeting, Tuesday December 13, 2011

Markus Zapke-Gründemann introduced the Python client dedun that offers access to the API for the information server of the City of Leipzig. Topics included design and development of the software as well as the testing with py.test.

The presentation was utmost interesting and lead to a very productive discussion. The talk clearly presented the different phases of development and the according changes in the approach.

The next meeting will be on January 10, 2012.
