MIANK7: [masked]Tue[masked] :
Google App Engine including with AngularJS,
presentation by member Steve Shaffer

MITDZE: the featured presentation, w/slides&code walk thrus,
*GAE is based on HADOOP(to do its BigTable storage,I think more),+why I got into Python (&I'm now even become the OCPython Co-organizer), as GAE is the hottest scalable web platform I know of available today, seemingly-uniquely allows the code one writes to support just one or a handful of users to immediately & automatically scale up millions or more simultaneous users! See more in the featured topic's discussion thread.
*This should also be a great demo of AngularJS, Python, & OCPython.

MKA8A9: 1st really tested & demonstrated 2 new series features (commenting MKA7I7 and food MK97XF).

MK9D75: members John Sheehan & Reyan Hewitt are event venue hosts, approximated here via the title Event Host, especially to auto-RSVP them as YES since they also most-always attend.

    We didn't get much hands-on coding going but the presentations (and resulting discussions) were great and I certainly learnt a lot. It was very nice meeting everyone there and it seemed like a very good mix of newb's (like me) and more experienced coders. I look forward to being able to add more to the conversation in future.
