First Meetup Ever

Update: The Interaction Consortium ( has kindly offered to sponsor the first event. So there we'll be free drinks until the tab runs out. Hooray for the Interaction consortium!

Hi everyone this is the first meetup to be held by SyDjango and will act as an introduction for everybody to get to know one another. We are also looking for some speakers to give a talk on the first night, so get in touch with me if you have a topic that you would like to talk about. This could be anything from describing how you are using Django in your current project, to discussing a particular feature of the framework (e.g. custom Managers).


1) Werner Fortmann: introduction and some war stories on my experience learning Django and using it in the platform I am developing.

2) Gary Reynolds: setting up a baseline for your Django projects, and sharing some of the tricks he has developed in 5 years professional experience with the framework.

3) Michela Ledwidge: short talk on how they're using Django apps for interactive entertainment production at Mod Productions.

    Hey Gary, it would be great to have you talk. I'll talk to you tonight at sypy if you're there, otherwise I'll send you a message tomorrow.

    I am happy to give a talk also.

    I've been developing web applications using Django since 2007, having worked in the UK & Australia.

    My talk will focus on setting up a baseline for your Django projects, sharing some of my tricks developed in 5 years professional experience with the framework.
