Project night!

This will be our first project night!

A month or two ago at GiveCamp, a few of us worked on thrive-refugee, a Django project for the folks at Thrive. They are excited to have the GRPUG continue to improve their program, so we're going to do so. At this meeting, we'll be getting anyone who's interested up to speed on the project, and then look at issues that still need to be addressed. If you can get a working environment up and running beforehand, that would be great. We may or may not actually have someone from Thrive at the meeting.

If Django is not your thing, or you have another project you'd like to work on, please bring it. I'm always interested in what you fine folks are doing with Python.

As usual, we'll follow up the meeting with food and drinks at HopCat for anyone who would like to socialize.

    Hello! I just noticed this user group today and will be joining tonight. A couple friends of mine and I have begun tinkering with Python recently, and this caught my eye. Hopefully I can get the others to come too. We have more coding background in .NET as a group, but are all interested in Python and look forward to getting into a small project or just listening quietly as we learn what you're about as a group.

    I don't Django, but I do potentially have a couple things that people might be interested in. Please let me know if you are…

    - octothorpe: Asterisk Manager library. It's used in (unreleased) Code Blue products right now as a passive observer of events controlled by other systems. But I want to bring it to another level and complete the path to hook it up to be able to answer and initiate calls.

    - sham: currently listed as "a compelling replacement for Mock", but I have a few more ideas as well. Grew out of my dissatisfaction with Mock but I think its core concept of a big fat log that can be filtered in many novel ways extends its usefulness—say, for creating a stand-in object to trace how another library uses objects you give it.

    Both are in my GitHub.

    A lot of people have replaced fixtures for testing with FactoryBoy ( It might be worth taking a look at.

    I would like to get those fixtures working. And some tests!
