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.

Emil Simon, Researcher about the course "Python for Scientists and Engineers" more...


Leipzig Python User Group - Archive 2012

Sixty Ninth Meeting, Tuesday January 10, 2012

Again we had a Python newbie attending who went home with a lot of new information about Python. We will again exhibit at Chemnitzer Linux Tage. We went through the questions we received last time and started to develop a concept for our booth.

The next meeting will be on February 14, 2012.

Seventieth Meeting, Tuesday February 14, 2012

We started the project Python macht Schule. Last year Markus Zapke-Gründemann in collaboration with the bookstore Lehmanns successfully offered a Python course for kids. The last session was in December at Python Academy.

We would like to continue this project. As the first step we need appropriate teaching material. Therefore we developed a first outline.

Since the material is under an Open Source license (cc-by, 3cBSD), it will be available for any purpose. The content is designed for kids and teenagers. We would like to use the material for course here in Leipzig but also encourage the use elsewhere. We would like to get teachers from different schools involved as disseminators.

The next meeting will be on March 20, 2012.

Seventy First Meeting, Tuesday March 20, 2012

We evaluated our booth at the Linux Fest Chemnitzer Linux-Tage. This year there were three Python related booths. One tutorial and several talks about Python topics were presented.

We continued the work on our project Python macht Schule and distributed the work for single chapters.

The next meeting will be on April 10, 2012.

Seventy Second Meeting, Tuesday April 10, 2012

We discussed different topics such what possibilities Python offers to communicate with Hardware. Another topic was GUI programming, especially animation of text.

The next meeting will be on May 8, 2012.

Seventy Third Meeting, Tuesday May 8, 2012

Mike Müller will talked about matplotlib. This library allows to create 2D Plots of high quality with only a few lines of Python. The presentation demonstrated the basic principles with examples and the possibilities to create animations and videos with matplotlib.

The next meeting will be on June 12, 2012.

Seventy Fourth Meeting, Tuesday June 12, 2012

We had a guest from the Munich Python User Group and the winner of a Python coding contest. The discussion explored what happened in the Python community at conferences. We also talk about else statement at unusual places and why is good for.

The next meeting will be on July 10, 2012.

Seventy Fifth Meeting, Tuesday July 10, 2012

Andreas Bunkahle presented about Python und OpenCV.

OpenCV is a very powerful and fast library for image processing and machine vision. The version 2.1 is stable works reliably with Python 2.6. Examples of usage include face and pattern recognition as well as webcam control or morphing among many other possibilities.

The slides with source code are available. The source code is written and tested for version 2.1. Adjust the syntax for higher OpenCV versions.

The next meeting will be on September 11, 2012. August is summer break.

Seventy Sixth Meeting, Tuesday September 11, 2012

Mike Müller reported about EuroSciPy. The with edition of this conference took place in Brussels, Belgium. More than 200 attendees enjoyed two days of tutorials and two days with talks. Again, the conference covered a amazingly wide variety of scientific topics.

Mike presented his talk No GIL - Parallel Python Programming with Cython and OpenMP. Cython allows to work with NumPy Arrays based on the commonly used OpenMP technology for multicore, parallel programming. This allows to to temporally turn off the Global Interpreter Lock (GIL).

The next meeting will be on November 13, 2012. The meeting in October will be replaced by the PyCon DE 2012 conference.

Seventy Seventh Meeting, Tuesday November 13, 2012

We evaluated PyCon DE 2012. The conference was full success and, after two years in Leipzig, moves on to Cologne in 2013

A few of us took part in the Code Retreat of PyCon DE 2012. We presented our impressions and did a bit of programming about the "Game of Life".

The next meeting will be on December 11, 2012.

Seventy Eighth Meeting, Tuesday December 11, 2012

We had a barcamp-like session about concurrency and parallel programming. Stefan Schwarzer presented parts of his talk at PyCon DE 2012.

The next meeting will be on January 8, 2013.
