I am planning on chipping into the pizza and beer pot.  My tastes are flexible and I enjoyed what we had last time so let that be your guide.  Looking forward to some good talks tonight, see you there!  :-)

Hello everyone,

I'm just writing to let you know we have our next DjangoMaine meeting scheduled for Monday December 12th at Pemaquid Communications on 28 Maple Street in Portland, Maine.

I hope to see everyone there, if you plan on going and haven't already RSVP'd please do, so that we know how many people to expect.



We will have Portland Pie pizza: Let us know if you are planning on eating some, and what toppings you want. If you don't reply, you might not get the pizza you like.

Here is the menu.



Last meeting Rob and I paid for the Pizza and Beer, what do people think about the following: If you want pizza and beer you throw $5 in the pot, and we use that money to buy the pizza and the beer. If there is any overage Rob and I will cover it for now.

Ideally we would love to find a sponsor to sponsor each meeting that would pay for the food and drinks. If you know of anyone that would be interested, let me know. Sponsors will also get their logo and link to their website on the DjangoMaine website.



 Last meeting we provided beer, if you would prefer something else, please let us know. If you plan on drinking beer, let us know so we can buy enough, and let us know what brand you prefer. If you want to BYOB you are more then welcome.

If you want something besides beer, feel free to bring it with you, or let me know what you want and I can see what I can do.



So far we have the following talks scheduled:


CJ Gaconnet Spec-like Testing in Python.

I will criticize the testing style typically found in Python projects. We will then take a look at an alternative style modeled after user stories and behavior-driven design. The proposed style has many benefits: DRY, explicit, exhaustive, and fun!

Ken Cochrane: Deploying your django application to Heroku.

I will guide you through the steps that are needed in order to get your django application up and running on If there is time I will also go over how Heroku compares to the other Django hosting providers.

Anyone else?

If you have a topic you want to present on Monday, please let me know and we will add it to the agenda.


Project Show and Tell:

What ever time is left will be open for project show and tell, if you have something you want to talk about and show everyone, feel free to bring it along. You can use this time to ask for suggestions and to gather feedback.

Please Note: If you hit "REPLY", your message will be sent to everyone on this mailing list ([address removed])
