What customers say ...


Very good introduction to the programming language.

Matthias Enderle, freelancer programmer about the German version of the course "Python for Programmers" more...


[The trainer] knows well what scientists need, so his hints are very practical and valuable. The hands-on course [..] covers a wide range of examples and will be very helpful in my daily work. ..

Dorota Jarecka, University of Warsaw, Poland about the course "Python for Scientists and Engineers" more...


The Python Summer Course was a very good opportunity to know almost all about Python. ... Highly recommended!!

Dr. Fabio Lamanna, Complex Transportation Networks, Trieste, Italy more...

Leipzig Python User Group

Next Meeting Tuesday, June 9, 2015

We will meet on June 9, 2015 8:00 pm at the training center of Python Academy in Leipzig, Germany (How to find us).

Our talk this time:

Mike Müller
Mochi - A New Approach to Functional Python Programming

Python has partial support for functional programming. Mochi is a Python-like functional language that compiles to Python 3 and PyPy 3 bytecode. It can use Python libraries and can be used from Python.

Mochi adds several functional features. For example:

  • tail recursion optimization
  • no re-assignments in function definitions
  • persistent data structures
  • pattern matching
  • algebraic data types
  • a pipeline operator
  • better anonymous functions
  • Erlang-style actors
  • Lisp-style macros
  • many useful builtin functions

This presentation gives an overview of Mochi and demonstrates how to use in an IPython Notebook. You will learn how functional programming can improve your daily programming while still using all these great existing Python libraries.


Everybody who uses Python, plans to do so or is interested in learning more about the language is encouraged to participate.


While the meeting language will be mainly German, English speakers are very welcome. We will provide English interpretation if needed.

The dates of our next meetings can be found in our calendar.
Information about meetings can also be found on our mailing list.
