The Austin Python Meetup Monthly Meetup

In the spirit of Austin Startup Week (, we will have a number of short presentations about local startups and efforts that are using Python.

Our sponsor this month, ObjectRocket, will kick things off with a 15 minute talk about their technology and how they use Python across their architecture.

Zack Simpson will then talk about AppSoma, a platform for building apps that analyze massive data in the cloud:

Christine Doig and Jessica Freasier will present TrustInDragons, their non-profit crowdfunding platform that recently won third place at PayPal's Battle Hack.  They have a Prezi they put together for the last PyLadies meetup:

Lastly, Joe Boutros will talk about his new company, Impossible Ventures.

Afterwards, we'll have plenty of time for banter and open discussion, and then we'll head out to a local bar.

      Hey Matt! I think ObjectRocket will be sponsoring and giving a brief talk about their tech, and then we'll hopefully have a bunch of "showcase" talks of local startups that use Python. (This is to fit the theme of Austin Startup Week, which is during the week of our Oct meetup.)
