October AWPUG

Hey pythonistas (pythonites? austinistas?)! I hope you're ready for a super special edition of AWPUG this month!

We'll be meeting at Capital Factory on Thursday the 25th. Come by around 6:30 and we'll kick things off at 7.

Joining us this month is Kenneth Reitz, Python Overlord at Heroku and the creator of everyone's favorite http library, requests. Kenneth will be giving a talk entitled "Flasky Goodness (or Why Django Sucks?)". This is not to be missed!

We'll continue the evening with lightning talks, so if there's something you'd like to share with the community, or if you'd just like to force everyone to listen to your voice for 5 minutes, you won't want to miss it.

As always we'll have food + beer for you, this month sponsored by our good friends at Indeed. Indeed is hiring python/front end/java devs, check out their postings at http://www.indeed.jobs

After the meetup we'll move the party over to Buffalo Billiards for beer, beer, and more beer.

See you all on Thursday!!

    We are starting a "learn Python" effort for the Austin python user groups. I will be at the meeting Thursday night, and I am seeking suggestions for what you would like to learn and how you would like to learn it. Please catch me or send a message to the Austin Python google group
    "austin{}python{}googlegroups{}com".format("-","@",".")
    or here if your message isn't getting through.

      Bill, we chatted at the meeting but here in Kansas City we use a what we call a Project Night or Hackathon to handle meetings like this. It's basically just social coding with very little structure. We open the meetings by allowing people to ask the group for help if there is anything specific that they need assistance with or want to learn. It's basically just a code review of sorts. We also always have a 'Beginners Corner' where we can walk people through the workshop materials we have at our Beginners Workshops as well. You can find those here: http://beginners-pyth...­

      Because of the informal nature of the meeting it reduces the burden on organizers. I think it's been really effective though.

      I'd be happy to answer any questions you have about them.
