Hopefully you've been having a great April so far, and are looking forward to our meetup Wednesday night. The Capital Factory has notified us that due to a scheduling conflict, we will need to use the classroom space instead of the normal meeting area, so we will only be able to take about 65 people this time. IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU ONLY RSVP "Yes" IF YOU ARE REALLY GOING TO COME. (This is the first time in the history of APUG that we've had to limit attendance, and hopefully it will be the last!) Thanks for your help.
At our meetup, the Stormpulse guys (http://stormpulse.com) will talk about the role Python has played in their stack over the years, how it's evolved with their business and where their stack is going. From Adrian at Stormpulse: "We run a pretty standard python stack but the definition of "standard" has definitely changed over the course of seven years. A couple of things we'll be touching on:
Distributed task workflows: Cron -> Gearman -> Celery
Data access patterns: Raw SQL / Stored Procedures -> ORMs (sqlalchemy and django's orm for geospatial queries)"
After the Stormpulse talk, we will have time for a few lightning talks and general discussion or Q&A. If you are working on a cool Python side project, or are just learning about a new library and would like to present your experiences getting started with it, please email me with a title and brief description, and how much time you'd like (5-10 minutes).
I hope to see you Wednesday! And please remember: if you RSVPed "yes" but really can't make it, please change your RSVP so that someone else will know there is room for them. Thanks so much!
