May turned out to be a pretty active month for the Python User Group! We are happy to announce that the Python User Group now has an official Youtube channel where we will release the monthly meetup presentations and of course PyCon videos for future PyCons.
We had a good turnout during the monthly meetup at the RedHat office. Around 30 people showed up and we enjoyed two talks:
- "Slidev for Tech Talks" by Martin Brochhaus
- "Introduction to Dozer" by Matteo Pelati & Chloe Minkyung Kim
In addition to our normal monthly meetup, Martin also gave a beginner friendly 90 minute workshop as part of our partnership with the National Library Board (NLB):
- "Introduction to ChatGPT, Whisper & Github Copilot for Python Development" by Martin Brochhaus

Our Telegram group grew to 56 members this month. We share invite link to this group during our in-person meetups. This is to make sure that the group consists of real people and is not flooded with bots and marketeers.
Our Meetup group grew to 6166 members. Now that COVID is over, we have seen an uptick in group signups and also in actual attendance numbers.
We have 5 paid members now. Find out more about our paid membership, here. At this stage, the cost for maintaining this community are still higher than our collected membership fees. We are working on a cost breakdown for you all so that you can see what it takes to keep this community alive. We hope that more members of the community will see value in the meetups that we organize and consider to become full society members.
