ANN Join ChiPy on Thursday August 13, 2009 Matplotlib, best meeting ever.

Chicago Python User Group



We welcome back Dr John Hunter. Matplotlib is probably the most popular open source 2D plotting library ever. It has multiple rendering engines, supports tons of plot formats, and even typesets complicated equations properly. Matplotlib, makes "easy things easy and hard things possible. "

Our host for the meeting is Sully's House Tap Room & Grill. All ages are welcome to this Free Private Event. For those of age, Sully’s House offer 20 Beers on tap, and 35 Bottles - all craft and microbrewery, specializing in Belgium, Irish and German selections. Enjoy great Bar Food & Pizza from our Italian Oven and Daily discounted menu specials. The host has given us a dedicated bartender. We will meet in the private party room on the second floor that is well equipped with top of the line video equipment – 100” HD screen & full A/V accessibility with Rock Band & Wii. Nice big space, bring a friend. Thanks Sully's!!!
