DFW Pythoneers 2nd Saturday Teaching Meeting

We invite you to RSVP for our Saturday September 13th monthly meetup.

This month our theme is “PyTexas Practice Talks” which will feature three local members who have generously agreed to share their talk from the upcoming PyTexas 2014 conference.

This month we will start at 1pm to give Python beginners a chance to ask questions and to meet and talk with other members of our growing group. This hour is optional and we will start our official meeting at 2pm.

There will also be a PyLadies organization meeting organized by Sheila Allen at 1pm running concurrently with the Beginners Hour.

If you are thinking of giving a lightning talk at PyTexas (there will still be an opportunity to sign up at PyTexas), then we will try to make room at the end of our meeting. It would be best if you let us know as soon as possible so we can be sure to fit you in.

We will be raffling off several books from O’Reilly Media and Packt Publishing. JetBrains has agreed to continue their support of DFW Pythoneers by allowing us to give away a PyCharm Personal License each month. Their only stipulation is we have a no repetitive wins policy. Seems totally fair to me.

If you have not attended a meeting recently, we have very nice meeting space provided by Improving Enterprises who also provides free pizza and drinks.

    Wow, 45 attendees! It was great to see that kind of turnout, and we also had a successful initial planning meeting for PyLadies in one of the conference rooms.

    The Improving Enterprises venue was excellent, and we really appreciated the volunteer helping everyone get into the building and the right room location.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
