Our meetup locations are a bit in flux at the moment because of changes at the Ansir Innovation Center. Please check the meetup pages themselves for the most up-to-date information.

Upcoming events

Saturday study group (
San Diego PyLadies and SD Python are continuing the Saturday study group. This will be our last time at the Convoy Street location as Ansir will be moving the following week to new (nicer!) offices. Check the meetup page for details. The goal of the Saturday study group is to learn Python together in a collaborative environment. The study group is open to people of all skill levels and is particularly open to those new to Python.
Bring a laptop!

PyLadies San Diego (
San Diego PyLadies are doing a Casual Code Meetup at 3rdSpace this Tuesday in addition to the regular Choco-Code Meetup at Eclipse Chocolate on Tuesday Sept 13 at 6pm. Get some of the best chocolate in San Diego and learn some code. Whether you are interested in learning Python or a Python pro looking to keep your skills fresh with a friendly group of Ladies and supportive men, this is the group for you.

Monthly Meetup (
The September 22 Monthly Meetup will be at ScaleMatrix. Because their building is an active datacenter, photo ID is required to enter the building. We are actively seeking speakers for five to ten minute lightning talks. Please comment on the event in Meetup if you're interested in speaking.


ScaleMatrix has become a sponsor San Diego Python by hosting our monthly meetup.

These services are offered wherever you need them—in their data center, on-premise, or in the cloud.
