Join the Hive
For communities of students who want to learn Python.

Tell Me More


You can sign up now for any of our upcoming Hives. Each hive has some overarching theme but there'll generally be lots of other cool Python related stuff going on simultaneously. All of our Hives are designed to cater for every level of ability and we rely heavily on those who know Python to help out and pass on their valuable knowledge to others.

Machine Learning

A fantastic introduction


HiPy was started in July 2016 by a group of researchers within the Faculty of Science and Engineering at University of Liverpool. The intiative is a response to a large demand from undergraduates and staff to learn coding skills which are highly prized by employers. Our mission is simple:

Build an open, welcome community for anyone who wants to learn Python.

So, whether you're an absolute novice or seasoned hacker, if you're interested in Python come and join us. All of our events are free and everybody is welcome. Come All. Learn Python.
