Will Real Python Hackers Please Stand Up: Filipino Python hackers and enthusiasts, may I have your attention please. Several months ago, I emailed Guido van Rossum , Python’s author and BDFL( Benevolent Dictator For Life), asking him for some advice on organizing a PUG( Python User Group) here in the Philippines. To my surprise, I got a quick reply from him with some instructions on how to get it started. But time did not allow me to take some actions immediately until now.
I realize that this blog could help spread my desire in starting a PUG with the help of course from those who are interested and passionate of the Python Programming Language. The benefits of having a user group is plenty just like the importance of having Linux User Groups as most of you might know or even involved with. We can gain more knowledge from each other as none of us is as smart as all of us. We can also provide some technical help to those who are just beginning to learn the language as a great way of helping the open source community.
To those who are interested, you can leave a comment here and we can keep in touch later.
I will end this post with a quote from a bestselling author named Stephen Covey. He said,
“Synergy is the highest activity of life; it creates new untapped alternatives; it values and exploits the mental, emotional, and psychological differences between people.”
Think about it.
UPDATE: Pinoy Python User Group -- Pinoy PUG
UPDATE 2: Pinoy PUG is now up and running!
