March topic: Tasket project review

Reviewing and discussing other people’s projects, especially in a group, can be one of the best way to learn both specific programming techniques and more general programming principles.

Special guest Damien Calloway will take us through his Python project, Tasklet, a command-line task manager. He’ll discuss the care and feeding of an open source project: a personal project to solve a personal problem. He’ll get into some insights gained by going through the process, getting an unexpected pull request, learning about Python packaging, why he chose the license he chose, etc.

Location: Innovation Hub

We’ve begun to meet in the Innovation Hub, a gorgeous new facility that’s part of the renovated Dayton Arcade complex.
Enter through the doors that face the Wright Stop Plaza bus hub.

Street parking is free in the evening. I usually park on Ludlow Street.


if for any reason coming downtown doesn’t work for you (for instance, you’ve been exposed to COVID, or you’ve converted yourself to purely digital format and now exist as a set of cloud-hosted algorithms), we’ll be online as well!

Join us at 7 PM EDT on the PyFri Discord channel,, and click on the General voice chat link. You may need to install the Discord desktop app rather than just using the web interface.
