The Northwestern Institute for Complex Systems (NICO) will hold a Python Project Night on Wednesday, March 16th from 5:30pm - 8:30pm at The Garage (2311 Campus Drive, Suite 2300).

This is the second in a series of university-wide, monthly meet ups held at The Garage. Following several Programming Bootcamps centered around Python language, the Project Night provides the 

Northwestern community with a creative venue to collaborate on new and interesting Python-related projects. Similar “hack” nights are springing up at various academic institutions and in cities across the nation. Coders at all levels are welcome!
