Approximately how late do you expect the event to go? For reference, I am intending to work on the CWOS project. I'm just trying to plan for the rest of my day. Thanks!

I'm really excited for this event and have been looking forward to it since the announcement, but something's just come up that will require me to arrive a few hours late. Will that be ok, or should I just rescind my RSVP to let someone on the waitlist in? I defer to the group. If I can let someone on the waitlist in and still show up late and jump in a group, that'd be great.

I would like to propose my own relatively simple command-line script, https://github.com/tombaker/mkli....
The script re-writes and re-sorts folders of plain-text to-do lists according to rules that you edit as your needs evolve, then urlifies the lists for your browser. I have run this script, which in its previous Korn shell incarnation was featured in UnixWorld (1994) and lifehacker.com (2006), for 20 years.
The current Python version is fast and stable, but I would now like to re-write it, completely from scratch, with unit tests, per-directory configuration files in YAML, documentation in markdown, and possibly OO design.
I could demo the current script in a lightning talk and present the requirements as I see them. We could use it as an opportunity to test the Pythonic ideal of starting a coding project with unit tests and collectively walk through the paces of documenting even a relatively simple project in a well-managed Github repository.

Looking forward to the coding meetup. I am interested in Machine Learning with Python and Web dev with a small framework (Flask). I have couple of suggestions:
1. Working on a Kaggle competition and submitting an entry. For example - http://www.kaggle.com/c/event-r.... I am keen to learn Numpy / Scikit and put it to use on this.
2. Building a small web app with Flask using Twitter Bootstrap template and deploying in Google App engine or elsewhere?

I'm excited to be there on Saturday. Thank you so much for the enthusiastic support for Hurricane Sandy Victims. The Collaborative Work Order System (CWOS-- soon to be re-launched at crisiscleanup.org) is the largest Open Source, Open Data project to assist hurricane cleanup. It's been used to manage 30,000 volunteers at more than 4,000 locations from Connecticut to Long Island, New York, and New Jersey.
It has received a lot of attention, and FEMA would like to introduce the collaborative work order system across the country.
Your support will help us fix a long list of bugs and major feature requests. Thank you again for your support, and I'll see you Saturday.

My apologies if this is the wrong kind of update. We have a position open in our group for an entry/mid level C/C++ developer with some flair for networking protocols and wireless technologies in particular. I noticed a couple of people were asking about finding Python jobs, hence my upfront apology in advance. You might either send me a message directly, or connect with me on linkedin.
Good luck! Looking forward to the upcoming group coding event.

When will wait listed members know they can or cannot attend the Social Code event?

Thanks for all the positive feedback. Any suggestions on helpful books on Python I can start to review would be great!

I'm a newbie and have never coded before so I'm not sure if this the best session if you have so many other coders. Let me know and if I should bring anything to help.

Hi everyone! I hope its okay that I post this... :) Girl Develop It (www.girldevelopit.com) is looking to start a chapter in Washington, DC! Our mission is to empower women around the world to learn how to develop software. We are in search of a DC Chapter Lead (must be of a technical background) and potential teachers, as well. We provide the curriculum... no worries. Please check us out online to get an idea of our classes...Intro to HTML5, jQuery, Java, Wordpress... etc. If interested in being a Lead or Instructor, please email me at [masked]. Thanks!

I'm a python beginning who would very much like to participate in a group coding session that could provide help for me in building a very basic (non-graphical) strategy game on a 2D grid "mapboard". Do you think this session would be appropriate for this or would another session/meetup be better suited?
