Congratulations to Dave Haffner who's become DC Python's 1000th member!
Of course we don't get all 1000+ members at the meetups, but 50-60 is not uncommon. When I mentioned this to someone at a recent tech conference in Europe, they commented that 60 is a many as they have at their yearly *national* conferences! :-)
We've seen terrific growth over the past couple years, and our friendship with other local tech groups (e.g., NoVA Python, Django District, DC PyLadies) makes for a strong community.
Your participation makes the community what it is. I'm looking forward to 2013 and thank you all -- especially those of you who are organizing teach-ins, hack-a-thons, and so on.
