The Austin Python Meetup Monthly Meetup

We typically have a main presentation or a series of lightning talks, followed by discussion and Q&A.  There is a diversity of domains and experience levels represented, so come with your questions and be prepared to talk about how you use Python!

(Note: Starting November 2012, we will be meeting at the Capital Factory space on the 16th floor of the Omni Hotel in downtown Austin!  This is our new regular location!)

    I would like to know what folks think of using the mic, particularly folks who were in the back. There were some low-talking periods of the evening that I would not have heard had I not been in the front. At points during talks, there were conversations between a speaker and a front-row attendee that got down to conversation level. There seemed to be some (mock) hostility toward using the mic, and I'm not sure that's a good thing.

      If there was any hostility towards using the mic, it was because it was a hand held microphone, which isn't compatible with typing on your laptop as you try to demonstrate something. Perhaps if a clip on mic were available, then using it would more of a easy decision to make. :-)

      I sat in the back and it was hard to hear the speakers, especially those that weren't good at projecting their voices. Also, even when the speakers were using the mic, I feel the volume wasn't up high enough.

    The first talk, the guy seemed to know a lot, but he was having difficulties conveying his ideas.

      And Andrew, I promise I'll volunteer myself some day soon for a lightning talk :-)

      Luis, please volunteer when you're ready. That said, you're probably ready long before you think you are. There is some nugget of Python you've discovered that the rest of us haven't. We all have insights to share. I look forward to seeing your contribution. Anon, Andrew

    Entirely new to Python, but would really like to meet people that can help give me some pointers.

    Call for Pythonic Lightning Talks.

    Fast 10 minute talks discussing your favorite feature of Python. Don't make me talk about generators one time, I'll do it; don't doubt it!

    Anon,

    Hey All,
    I have an inside line on some software spots at Dell and YouTube if anyone is interested, I can get you more particulars. The Dell Jobs are in Austin, the YouTube ones are in Burlingame (south of SF). All Python centric.

    Lemme know, and I miss you nerds!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
