+1 from me as well, was great to have so many people along. I'd second the 3rd Tuesday. There's also the python meetup group and the python dojo, which we want to avoid clashing with, and I think that keeps us in the clear. Keeping as a pub meetup for now works for me. Next time, I should be able to book the function room downstairs if we arrange early enough. That should also mean that if we want to do some lightning talks as well, we could squeeze that in more easily.

+1Nice to see some new faces.It would be great if last night could become the starting point of a regular "pub meet" event. Even better if calendars could be synchronised with the DJUGL organised by Jon Gould; for example, agree to hold a Django meetup on (e.g.) the 3rd Tuesday of every month. Then it would be easier to remember, and to avoid clashes with other events like the Python Dojo. DJUGL is not a monthly event, so maybe it can alternate with pub meets?

Hey guys! Was good to meet everyone yesterday!
The next Django User Group London meetup has been arranged for the 1st August. Space is limited and therefore so are tickets but you can book yours here http://www.djugl.org/calendar
Running a little late!

Can't make it tonight, but...we're looking for a django dev to join our team. Our startup Shoply.com is a funded social shopping marketplace. It's built in Django with love. We're based in London. Who's up for it?
Hey folks. Looking forward to coming along tonight and meeting you all.
In case I don't get to meet everyone in the group, I wanted to let you know that we just opened up a job call for a django developer over at Chatterbox.. full details are here: http://careers.stackoverflow.com/jobs/21656/django-developer-small-team-at-huge-scale-chatterbox
Would love to chat about this tonight, see you there...
We've now got an area reserved. Hopefully there should be enough room. They have a function room, but it was already taken.

So it seems there's a lot of people due to come to this tomorrow, which is great. From experience meetup.com attendance is a good bit lower than the number replying online, but I'm going to try and stop by the venue tonight and see what it's going to be like for space; possibly book some tables if they'll let me.
This night is clashing with another Python group, although they are nearby and a bit later, if anyone did want to go along there after. I'm sure we can pick better dates for future.
Hi folks, great. I'll show myself on the 10th. Haven't been to the Shooting Star before, but I'll try and make myself visible.
Hello everybody, I hope that we have a good day on 10 July

This is probably a good time to announce the Django User Group London's new web space. www.djugl.org - with one place to find out about all the django events in London, less people should miss announcements and be able to attend. The usual format of the DJUGL meet up is for Pizza/beers followed 3-4 talks. So that the events run regularly we need venues capable of holding 50+ people, and some willing volunteers to speak. Suggestions for either are welcome! The next DJUGL is being planned for July

Seems this group is very much dormant. Lots of people on here though. For want of a Django group in London, it'd be great if this could be restarted. I'm suggesting 10th of July, 6pm at the Shooting Star. If anyone's still alive on here, might be good if you could raise your hand and say you're interested.

I'm a designer in the day-job and new to Python/Django, so would very much like to meet members of the London community. Weekday evenings would suit me better, but first things first and that's who's still interested other than me and Wil? (pleased to meet you btw :))
0 · February 16, 2012
I'm still keen, not sure who else on here is active though?
Hi all. Hope you're well. Very keen to meet up with other developers from the London Django community, so would be good to meet up soon. Is this group still active? D

Sounds good to me, I've suggested it as a venue. Are people happy with that? If so, that's one step closer, then it's just a date!

Wil Linssen changed the location to The Shooting Star
September 29, 2011
Just a suggestion, the Shooting Star, Liverpool St E1 7JF has a downstairs conference room with a bar and its very central, hopefully being accessible to as many people as possible!

best option is for someone to take charge, pick a date that doesn't conflict with anything else web related (lanyrd is helpful here), that isn't friday/saturday/sunday (family & friends time), and go for it, these things run better with one or two wills driving them than keep everyone happy and putting things up to vote.

@daniel, 69% of users agree with you, including me: http://www.meetup.com/The-London-Django-Meetup-Group/polls/278551/
From what I've seen weekend events in london don't generally gain much traction unless they are conferences, hack days, or bar camps, and weekday events (excluding friday) with talks starting starting around the[masked]pm seem to fair better.
So if your aim is to do the standard social meet and greet, 1-2 talks, and beers in a local pub then it would probably be better to arrange it for mon-thurs evening.
Where is going to take place the Django meetup?Skill matter??

A little way off, but we should plan something like this for 2012 http://djangodash.com/
we could do it this year, but it would be nice to have a 100+ established community

After work is generally better for me, but weekends aren't impossible.
0 · May 16, 2011
Hey guys, weekends would be very convenient for me as my weekday commutes are currently a bit of a pain. :)
I would prefer to make a decision based on people's general availability though. I have the impression that a weekend afternoon or evening might be easier for everyone?
I'm in for Saturdays because I can't go London on workdays, but as Will said, don't let my availability get in the way of the meeting.
If weekdays is best for most of the people or the possible venue, I'm OK with that :)
Personally my weekends are chock full up until August, but obviously don't let my crapness get in the way of your meet.
Hi Wil, would be great. Would weekends be better for you? I'm thinking potentially a Saturday/Sunday.
I'd really like to come down from Nottingham, and I know a couple of my colleagues would be interested too. It'd be good to do it on a weekday after work if possible? We can hop on an earlier train to get there at a decent hour.

Hey guys, if anyone wants to help out my email is jamespaxi [at] gmail [dot] com. You would be very welcome. :)

Yup, I'll write them down soon. I would like the event to be mainly a way to discuss and share ideas, and help people who are new to Django. Furthermore we will have a presentation and with the money left from sponsorships we'll have a draw for a book or hosting service.
No problem - drop me an email at harry [at] hmarr.com and I'll put you in touch with them.
Harry would you know what the best way to contact The Guardian about it?
Sebastian thanks for that :) I believe that is where Hacker News host their events.
The venue is great! I've emailed them regarding the event.
The Guardian are also pretty good - generally host for free.
1 · May 12, 2011
anyone have a place we can host this at?
that sounds doable :)
I'm working on getting a sponsorship and a presentation sorted for the event. If anyone has a suggestion, it would be very welcome.
I need to use public transport to get into London, so for me weekends are best.
So virtually any Saturday, from 15 to 20 it's perfect for me :)
for me weekends are great, but also Tuesdays and Thursdays after 5-6pm? Or I'll just take a day off work :)
What works best for you? Weekends?
The London Django Meetup Group is a social meetup, we regularly hold a gathering the 2nd Tuesday of each month.
The meetups are an occasion for all, you don't have to be a veteran Django developer, although an interest in Django and web development is advisable. :)
Meetup notes will be collected on GitHub August 2014 onwards, if you have notes to add please send in a pull request. https://github.com/djangolondon/The-Django-...
PS: Sometimes Anand likes bringing delicious Django pony cakes... so be advised!
Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
