The One and Only First AWPUG Meeting of 2014

WE ARE BACK! It has been way too long since our last meeting, so we're going to hit the ground running in 2014! You won't want to miss this once and a lifetime event.

Come and join us as Kurt Griffiths will present his talk "Teaching Falcon to Fly"

Falcon ( is a new web framework specifically designed for creating lean, high-performance HTTP APIs.

The difference between efficient and inefficient code can mean the difference between a good user experience and a poor one, or the difference between a profitable product and a financial disaster. In this talk, I'll introduce the Falcon web framework, and share some of the performance patterns I discovered while developing the framework.

As always we will meet in the Capital Factory in Downtown Austin at 7 PM. Refreshments and Tacos will be generously provided by Rackspace 'the open cloud company' ( Afterwards we will continue to talk about Python on the web at a local drinking establishment.

Hope to see you there!

    Hey everyone, hope you all can make it tonight! Please drive safe as the weather will not be nice to us and be sure to update your RSVP if you are unable to attend so we know roughly how much food to order.

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.
