Handling Time Zones and Recurrences like a Boss in Python/Django w/ Wes Kendall

Doing datetime manipulation in Python can be a very tedious task, especially across different time zones and daylight savings time boundaries. This talk summarizes a new open-source library called "Fleming" that aids in doing datetime manipulation across timezones. It also talks about "Django Localized Recurrence", another new open-source library for scheduling recurrences of events based on a time zone. The talk also gives a basic introduction to pytz in Python and some of the ways that Django handles time zones.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
