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/
Join us at 7 PM EDT at https://udayton.zoom.us/j/798060256
“Fellow citizens, we cannot escape history.” - Abraham Lincoln
COBOL has, unexpectedly, been in the news again. Let’s take a look at it! Maybe we’ll appreciate our up-to-date languages more by really thinking about they ways they do - and don’t - contrast with ancient ones.
No need to bring a teletype and paper tape. We’ll figure out a way to run COBOL on our machines.
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.
PyFri is is moving to videochat format from mid-March 2020 to (?).
Jump on https://udayton.zoom.us/j/798060256 at noon on Friday (this Friday and following Fridays), chat about interesting Python problems or solutions, share your screen if you wish.

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!
