    What:

    Kivy is a feature rich, cross-platform GUI toolkit for Python that supports rapid development of applications that make use of innovative user interfaces. Kivy is:

    Well supported and documented
    Runs on IOS, Android, Linux, MacOS and Windows
    100% free to use under an MIT license
    GPU accelerated using OpenGL ES2.
    * Learn more at: https://kivy.org/#home

    The presentation will provide an overview of Python GUI options. It will review the choice of Kivy for 2 projects. Seth and Elliot will then provide an overview of Kivy and the key architectural concepts behind Kivy. Demonstrations will highlight key concepts, and showcase the results of 2 projects. They will also share resources that were useful in coming up the learning curve.

    **NOTE**: I am going to try and move back to Wednesday nights, starting with this meeting.

    # What

    "Airflow is a platform to programmatically author, schedule and monitor workflows." See: https://airflow.apache.org/

    Austin has an Airflow server up and running and will provide a few examples of writing Python code that implement workflows in Airflow. Exact details of the examples are still TBD.

    It would be awesome if a couple other people also implemented example workflows to share with the group. Please comment below if you have something to contribute, it doesn't matter if you are an expert and have something ready to share now or want to implement something as a learning experience.

    # When

    Wednesday October 24th at 6:30PM.

    # Where

    Workuity is a co-work space at 24th and Camelback across from the Biltmore. Park in surface parking and enter building 2390, Workuity is on the first floor on the north side of the lobby. We'll be meeting in the common area. The surface parking is free after hours.

  6. GUI Programming with PyQT

    Tue, Jun 26, 2018 6:30 PM
    UAT

    See past meeting details!

    NOTICE: I am exploring the possibility of changing locations, if you or your employer has a space that would be convenient and fit 30+ people please contact me. Otherwise this will be held at UAT in a classroom upstairs, 201 most likely.

    What:

    PyQt is a UI framework designed in C++ and ported to Python. In fact you don't necessarily need to use Python to utilize the Qt library. But today we'll be using Python as I find it easier to create the application quickly.
    Today we will be building a game using this framework. The game is blackjack. I'll go over the rules today and then we will begin building the application.

    Bio:

    My name is Nicholas Finch, I am a Software Engineer over at USGS. I've spent 2 years now working on an application dedicated to helping scientists analyze rock samples from Mars. This application of course is designed in PyQt, which I will be teaching today.

    Where:

    UAT Upstairs Room 201 most likely.

    I am going to revisit my Pandas presentation this month. Maybe make some improvements and share it again at our Downtown location.

    "Python pandas is an open source, BSD-licensed library providing high-performance, easy-to-use data structures and data analysis tools for the Python programming language." Visit http://pandas.pydata.org/ or come to the meeting for more details.

    This will cover the basics of Pandas and some introductory NumPy material including:

    Pandas Data Structures - Series, DataFrame
    Basic Operations
    * Plotting

    It will be derivative of this presentation: https://github.com/desertpy/presentations/blob/master/pandas-intro-godber-jan-2014/Pandas_and_Friends.ipynb
