General Meeting

Agenda


10 minutes for introductions


We will be having three super short talks for this meeting.


Tim Kuelhorn will be talking about the basics for getting started on a project using Python. Perfect for beginners to the language.


Roger Serwy will give a short talk as well on CPython bytecode.


Liz Surbeck will be giving a book review on the yet-to-be-released book called "Flask Web development" by Miguel Grinberg from O'Reilly (http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920031116.do).  Check out his blog here: http://blog.miguelgrinberg.com/


10 minutes birds of a feather (reference here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birds_of_a_feather_(computing))


10 minutes of group TIL-ing (Today I Learned)


20 minutes business/boring stuff  The Women's IT and Computing Open House on May 31


We need volunteers! Both ladies and gents! 


Flyers will be available and one way you can volunteer for the event is just by posting them around town and your place of work.


Makerspace Urbana just got a brand new TEKTRONIX  TBS1202B-EDU  OSCILLOSCOPE, 2CH, 200MHZ, 2GSPS (http://www.newark.com/tektronix/tbs1202b-edu/oscilloscope-2ch-200mhz-2gsps/dp/33X1216) As we are affiliated with them, we should def take advantage of that so I'm calling out all engineer minds!

    Decent attendance with well-presented talks on bytecode, project starting, and a book recommendation. Will likely encourage others to share their favorite programming resources as well.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.

Rafaël, started French Conversation Group
