IndyPy will host its first hybrid event since the pandemic on Tuesday, May 10 to celebrate its 15th Anniversary! To make sure we have enough space (and cake!), please let us know whether you’ll be attending IndyPy’s 15th Anniversary Celebration either in-person (at The District Tap Northside) or virtually (via Zoom) by filling out this quick form.   

This is a really special event — which means will be giving away really special prizes — including a 3D printer (compliments of JFrog); Python-embedded devices like Meowbits, EdgeBadges and PyBadges (compliments of Six Feet Up); and free drinks for in-person attendees (compliments of JetBrains). All attendees, both in-person and remote, will be eligible to win, and no one will go home empty-handed.


7 - 7:30 p.m.:
Announcements and Introductions

7:30 - 8:15 p.m.: "The Future of Python Meetups in a Global, Hybrid World" with Calvin Hendryx-Parker (Six Feet Up) and Michael Kennedy (Talk Python to Me  &  Python Bytes)
The Python community is strong and steadfast. As the world continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, how will the future of Python Meetups change? Calvin and Michael will discuss how Pythonistas shifted with the pandemic and tactics for staying connected — both locally and globally.

As the IndyPy tribe has witnessed, IndyPy welcomed members, guests, speakers and sponsors from every corner of the world  during the pandemic. From Florida, to California, Canada and Mexico, IndyPy's “regulars” reach far beyond the confines of the greater Indianapolis area. That said, its 15th anniversary event will be a celebration of the global Python community. We’ll have special guests, awesome prizes and lots of love for the Python community. And yes, Pete the Python (the stuffed version) will be making a return appearance.

8:15 - 8:30 p.m.: Door Prizes

8:30 - 9 p.m.: Networking and General Discussion
