Welcome to Lunch Time Python - an event series organized by the Scientific Software Center at Heidelberg University.

What it is

Python is a very popular - maybe even the most popular - programming language among scientific software developers. One of the reasons for this success story is the rich standard library and the rich ecosystem of available (scientific) libraries. To fully leverage this ecosystem, developers need to stay up to date and explore new libraries. Lunch Time Python aims at providing a communication platform between Pythonistas to learn about new libraries in an informal setting. Sessions take roughly 30 minutes, one library is presented per session and the code will be made available afterwards. Come by, enjoy your lunch with us and step up your Python game!


These are the currently planned sessions of Lunch Time Python:

Here is a list of past sessions which you can reproduce in a Cloud environment by clicking the Binder links below:

If you want to suggest a library for presentation, you can also send an email to the SSC developers
