    Is there anyone in the group who's using scrap.org framework?

    I have an upcoming project that will require the use of this framework, and I'm seeking guidance on how to implement it.

      I am also having trouble with scrapy. I'll be on the look out for your shirt.

    • Ned B.

      Jayson, please respect the waiting list. You will probably be moved to the Yes column as people adjust their RSVPs.

      It can get changed even within a few hours of the meetup starting. I've had that happen to me and was able to get in on one meetup earlier in the year. So keep your eyes peeled!

    There's always a newbies/beginners table, with helpful people, at the project nights. If you're already a programmer in (say) C++, Java, Ruby, Javascript or Lisp, try http://docs.python.org/2/tutorial/

    Python Newbie! Is there a good site, I should review before attending? Thank you in advance.

      First rule of thumb with python = learn to love monty python references. ;D

      I found that reading and referencing "Learning Python" and "Programming Python" helped me immensely. "Python Cookbook" may also help you understand how to code is put together.

      Try jumping into using Django framework - that will help you apply what you learn very easily and see results.
