At our August meetup, we had a great discussion about the need for local resources for learning Python, and catering to beginners and experts alike. This is a very important and timely topic, and for our September meeting, I have a rather non-traditional format in mind: We will engage in a broad discussion, in small groups or as a large group, about how to concretely move forward with establishing an actual "Python Learning" meetup as part of the Austin Python umbrella.
I have a small slide deck that will hopefully motivate the discussions, but for this to be successful, we will need everyone to participate and contribute ideas. Ideally, more than just a few people will be able to actually volunteer their time for these things. (One of the topics of discussion is how to incentivize more participation from people who can act as mentors for these sorts of learning events.)
So come join us for pizza, drinks, and a lively discussion that will hopefully have a big impact on the future of Python in Austin!
