    I'm not a python developer myself, but my company is looking for python developers. I'm looking to come hang out and get to know some of the python developers in the area.

    Hello, I'm new to this group and will be coming to the meetup tonight. I have some python, R and data analytics background, but not sure if my level fits better in the learners table or participate in a project. Hope to be part of the group and contribute:)
