Python Working Group

About the Python Working Group

The Python Working Group (PWG) is a place for students to learn and share knowledge of the Python programming language. We are a community-driven group with weekly presentations given by PWG members on a range of Python-related topics.

Python users of all skill levels are welcome to join!!

Ian Brabb (ian.brabb@wsu.edu) and Bayley Mcdonald (bayley.mcdonald@wsu.edu) are the current leaders for PWG. Please contact them with any questions you have.
