North West Python User Group

Title: North West Python User Group
Location: MadLab
Description: Python North West is a user group for Pythoneers and Pythonistas of all levels and ages, open to everyone coding “the way Guido indented it”.
Start Time: 19:00
Date: 2010-11-15
End Time: 21:00

This month we’re getting together for a Code Dojo!  This is an opportunity for Pythoneers and Pythonistas of all levels to flex their fingers and do some group coding with the aim of improving our coding skills.  No matter what your level of experience, everyone will get to learn something new while having a bit of fun at the same time.

We plan to stretch our skills on a real world mini project.  There’s a mine of historical weather data available all over the internet in various accessible and not so accessible formats.  We plan to scrape this data from the web and make it useful for climate analysis.

To help us scrape this data from the internet we’ll be using ScraperWiki (http://scraperwiki.com/), a Python-ready set of tools for screen scraping, data mining and visualisation.

ScraperWiki are kindly sponsoring this event with beer and pizza!
