The meetings are very informal. We usually don’t have any formal presentations, but people frequently show code that they’re working on. The flow of the meeting tends to meander, so if you’re interested in something specific, you should speak up! ).
We are a Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Dayton Microcomputer Association. See other DMA SIG meetings at [Meetup](http://www.meetup.com/Dayton-Microcomputer-Association-Meetup/
If you’ve been around the open-source software community long, you’ve probably heard a hundred times how great it is to contribute to open source - how responsible, how empowering, how educational, how uplifting. But you may not have heard much about how to actually do it, and maybe unexplained jargon and techniques have deterred you.
So let’s do a hands-on night of learning and trying out the techniques of open-source contribution. Bring a laptop if you have one, or we’ll pair you up with somebody who does.
Together with Tec^Edge, we’re having an informal weekly lunchtime meeting for folks learning Python. No program, just come to share questions with each other, show off what you’ve been working on, and discuss. We’ll meet most Fridays at noon at the Wright Brothers Institute. Check meetup to make sure we’re meeting on a particular Friday.
Many people can’t make that time, so join our mailing list to discuss possible times for an alternative session.
We have a mailing list that we use for occasional discussion, but usually just monthly meeting reminders. It’s extremely low traffic and definitely the best way to know what is going on with the group.
We meet meet on the !2nd Wednesday of every month from !7pm to !9pm upstairs at Brixx Ice Company.
This lets us combine our customary after-meeting dinner with the meeting itself. Yum!
Dayton is home of the Dayton Microcomputer Association, one of the country’s oldest computer user groups. DMA serves as an umbrella group for a variety of Special Interest Groups like ours - see DMA’s meetup page.
