pyCologne Python User Group, Cologne, Germany, April 8th Notes

Unfortunately, there were only 4 people at our meeting on March, 11th. Therefore the talks were postponed.

The Cologne Python User Group met on April, 8th at the computer centre of the University of Cologne. The meeting was attended by about 12 people. German speakers might want to refer to our wiki page

This time we had two talks:
