PyPastry and Telegram bot

In this event we will host two sprints:

The PyPastry sprint will be lead by Daoud, its author, and we will work on different issues:

  • Add new features
  • Improve the test suite
  • Add typing
  • Create packages
  • Set up the CI
  • Improve the documentation

For the Telegram bot, we will create a bot to help us with our new channel. Any idea is welcome, but some of the things we can work on are:

  • Implement a /next-event command, to get the link to the next scheduled event
  • Implement a /next-event-location to get the geolocation of the event
  • Implement a NLP system able to identify spam, rude or abusive messages, commercial messages like job postings… and automatically block people in the channel posting those


  • 6pm: Networking, drinks and food
  • 6:30pm: Sponsor presentation, project presentations and team creation
  • 6:45pm: Coding
  • 9pm: Group presentations
  • 9:30pm: End of the event, or pub


  • Bring a laptop with Python and git installed
