Here's a list of the local Python groups that I know about. (Note: our Berkeley meetups are listed on our events page.)
Towards South Bay:
(and probably more, if you search Meetup.com for "Python")
If I missed any local Python groups, leave a comment below and I'll update the lists.
Managing Information Overload
I'm actually a member of
over 600 almost 1,000 groups on Meetup.com. I filter the notification messages into a "MEETUP" folder. An email filter stars any messages that contain words like "Python" and other topics that I'm interested in. This actually works for any kind of meetup. I probably get about 100 emails per day from Meetup.com, but the stars next to interesting events let me skim the list quickly and delete the rest.
