    Guess what, everyone? The Python Users’ Group (or PUG) is back in action
    starting on Tuesday, February 20th for another great semester!

    PUG is a bi-weekly, open, and informal opportunity for those interested in
    or working in the Python programing language to come to the GC Digital
    Scholarship Lab and find support.

    Have a project you want to solve with Python but not sure where to begin?
    We are excited to help you get started! We can help you

    Plan and scope your project
    Demonstrate how easy it can be to use Python to solve problems with your
    research materials
    Work with you to provide a path for going forward using Python

    Are you an intermediate or experienced Python who needs help figuring out a
    particular package or toolkit? Have you taken an Introduction to Python
    workshop, but need reinforcement and reminders? PUG is a great place to
    find the support you are looking for!

    Whether you are looking for advice or assistance with new or current
    projects or looking to discuss and learn new skills using Python tools, PUG
    is here to help! We offer assistance with:

    Learning how to install Python and additional Python libraries on your
    personal computer
    Finding common patterns across many texts
    Creating data visualizations for conference presentations, for papers, or
    for sharing on your personal website
    Cleaning, organizing, and managing data
    Preparing data for machine learning and interpreting results

    PUG is staffed by the GC Digital Fellows, who have experience with many of
    the most popular open-source toolkits for Python and are happy to help
    troubleshoot particular problems and snags that you might be experiencing.

    There is no need to register; that said, we encourage you to bring your own

    In Spring 2018, PUG meet alternating Thursdays from 11:00AM – 1:00 PM in
    the Digital Scholarship Lab, room 7414.
