Casual (Monthly) Meetups for
Python Developers and Enthusiasts

Interested in Python and meeting other software developers and code lovers? Want to learn more about one of world’s most popular programming languages or simply talk to engineers who know exactly what you’re dealing with? Python Belgrade is the go-to local community which hosts Python-related meetups, lectures, and other events. We welcome all who want to stay informed, or share their knowledge on Python-related topics.

Just a Little Bit About Us

With the number of Python developers and enthusiasts growing exponentially in the past several years, Python Belgrade was founded in Fall 2015 with the mission to connect and incentivize people to work (better) in Python and thrive in the IT industry. Through casual (monthly) meetups, lectures, and networking events, we aspire to provide a platform for the local IT community, through which folks can communicate more efficiently and come together around shared goals.

In addition to organizing these casual informative events, we are always available to anyone interested in finding out more about Python, meeting people with similar interests, or seeking employment in software development.

Our ultimate goal is to use our informal methods of communication to create a better informed, more homogenous and intertwined IT community in Serbia. However, we don’t take ourselves too seriously, and neither should you. In case you are just overwhelmed with Python-related matters, here’s something to loosen the death grip https://www.python.org/doc/humor/

Python Belgrade Meetup #17

Dear Pytosi,

Fasten your seat belts, we’re ready to take off!

Sun is up, spring is just around the corner, and so is the next Python Belgrade Meetup! We would like to invite you to join us on Friday, March 30 at 6pm. We would also like to inform you that we are changing our meeting spot. From now on we will be gathering at our friends’ place- ICT Hub (Kralja Milana 10).

Make sure to clear your schedule for this day and take the opportunity to come and hear our dear lecturers:

Viktor Kerkez, Totient (Belgrade)

RECOMMENDER SYSTEMS IN PYTHON

Introduction to recommender systems – collaborative filtering and content filtering – through LIVE CODING SESSION. We will implement some of the basic machine learning algorithms in python, dive through existing libraries and explain how can we leverage deep learning to improve upon the traditional machine learning models.

Ante Aljinovic, SeekandHit (Split)

GRPC MICROSERVICES ARCHITECTURE

This lecture will concentrate on problems we can come across during scaling REST API service. Based on his previous experience, Ante will present possibilities of GRPC framework, which enables RPC calls using Google Protocol Buffers mechanism.

If you want to meet new people, old friends and hear something interesting, join us at ICT Hub. After we hear our lecturers out and learn something new, we will join our friends from Silicon Drinkabout, relax and treat ourselves with a couple of beers.
Can’t wait to see you all, so don’t forget to book your seat!

Best regards,

Python Belgrade

Frequently Asked Questions

How much are the tickets for meetups and lectures?

  • Unless specifically stated otherwise, all our events can be attended free of charge. Most of the time all you have to do is show up – for larger events there will be a registration form. In case some events require ticket purchasing, we will notify all interested parties weeks in advance.

I want to be a speaker at one of your events? How can I do that?

  • In order to speak at our events, you need to satisfy but three requirements: you have to be a reputable professional, a lecturer who can offer some value and knowledge to the attendees, and a decent human being. If you think you fulfill all three of these basic prerequisites, please, contact us and we’ll make sure to enlist you as a speaker at one of our meetups. All our events are themed and aspire to provide value for both beginners and senior programmers; while most individual lectures last between 20-45 minutes, bear in mind that preparing a good lecture often takes a bit of time and effort, so make sure you spare several hours if you are to become our speaker.
