First MeetUp of 2013 (Last Thursday February)

Welcome to 2013 everyone and SyDjango's first MeetUp of the new year. We are looking forward to another year of excellent speakers presenting on all things Django.

We begin the year with some changes. First off, Ninefold ( have kindly offered to host us for our first meetup and put on some drinks and food for everyone. We'll also be moving to having only two speakers present at each meet up so that there is more time for everyone to talk.

Talks for the night:

Roger Barnes on Factory Boy: A better way to manage data for testing.


Greg Turner on FeinCMSTools:


As always if you're interested in give a presentation then nominate yourself by emailing [masked] and giving a brief outline of what you want to discuss. You can also give a lightning talk on the night by just turning up.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

+ Werner

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
