Hey, Ben. I just joined the Tampa Bay Python Meetup, just to see what things are like down there for Django. After I joined, I saw that you're also part of the Charlotte Python Meetup. Small world! So, are you in Tampa or Charlotte these days?
The Northern Virginia Python Users Group gets together on the third Thursday of the month at the VMWare location just off the Dulles Toll Road. We talk about beginning topics as well as more advanced applications of the language.
