    Ok, but the whitespace warps the mind of an old guy like me. Anyway, looks like an active group. See:

  • PyData Atlanta

    From their Meetup page:

    PyData-Atlanta is interested in telling insightful stories about data and exploring the methods behind those stories. We advocate for open data ecosystems and workflows that center on open source tools, especially (but not exclusively) based in Python. We are focused on the vertical integration of tools and skills that transform raw data into insights, and we aim to provide a seminar-like learning environment. We host short interactive presentations, audience-contributed lightning talks, panel discussions, and informal networking opportunities. Our events can benefit both experienced and beginner data scientists alike.

    Announced in the September 2016 meeting, this meetup is already the 6th largest PyData meetup in the world. Way to go!

    PyData is a national group for users and developers of data science tools to share ideas and learn from each other, especially in the context of Python-based tools. PyData is organized by NumFOCUS.org, a 501(c)3 non-profit in the United States. The PyData Code of Conduct governs this meetup. To discuss any issues or concerns relating to the code of conduct or the behavior of anyone at a PyData meetup, please contact the primary organizer: Tony Fast (This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • PyLadies Atlanta

    From their meetup.com page:

    A group of women in the Atlanta area, who are, or aspire to be developers and learn/work in the python programming language. Members of any experience level are welcome, so long as they are female. More info can be found at our google group: https://groups.google.com/group/womenspyatl

    NOTE: Please bring a laptop to the meetings, if you have one. If you don't have one, bring some note-taking materials, as we will be working through tutorials at times. We will post materials online after the meetups, however if you can follow along during the meeting, the better!

    We're also on twitter! @PyLadiesATL

    NB: This is a group for *women* who ARE or DESIRE to be programmers. We are NOT a general 'women in tech' group. There are lots of those on meetup.com and in the Atlanta area. Please note the group will be focused on programming in python.
