This is our first in a series of Python Office Hours Meetups, which will happen monthly on the 4th Tuesday of every month. Attendance is free, and pizza and beverages will be provided as we find sponsors to do so.
We are looking for food/drink sponsors (8 to 10 pizzas and beer/soda for approx. 50 people at most) in exchange for five minutes of air time to announce your product/hiring/etc and hang out with us for the evening. Contact us for details. Only sponsors are allowed to market at these events, and even then, please keep it low-key: encourage people to come to you instead of hounding them. If you have an interesting presentation, this will be effortless.
This is a casual "geek gathering", where short & informal tech talks happen, and you can get help/advice on a project, and ask questions about anything tech related (Pythonic but not strictly Python). Anyone working with technology at any level (or anyone wanting to work with it) is welcome. Any tech question is welcome, and there is no such thing as a "dumb" question. We are ego-free and here to help.
There will be a mix of people and skills present, so feel free to bring your questions pertaining to system admin/dev ops, other languages, best practices, installation issues, etc.
We have use of a tiny conference room, and open space for questions. If you wish to give a short presentation (30 minutes or so) on a Python-related topic, please contact me off-list: aagg at comcast dot net.
Watch this announcement for upcoming scheduled talks at our office hours.
No recruiters or hiring managers allowed. No marketing allowed whatsoever, unless you are a sponsor (in that case you have five minutes of marketing time). Developers: play "spot the recruiter" and win a prize!
