Is that thunder you hear in the distance? Heck yeah it is, because this IndyDjango is riding the lighting (talks, that is). Lightning talks are a series of 5-minute, rapid-fire talks delivered by different presenters in a short time period. They're a great opportunity for folks to learn a lot of information in a short amount of time, with cool demos, tools, techniques and theory overviews.
Terrarium: Package and ship relocatable python virtualenvs, like a boss by Kyle Gibson
Stupid Git Tricks by Michael Zoller
Getting Started With Django Internationalization by Evan Hazlett
Testing Django with Nose, because the Django test runner sucks by Wes Winham
Have you wanted to do a presentation, but didn't want to commit to a full 30 minutes? This is the perfect opportunity to get your feet wet! We're accepting proposals now to fill up a max of six speaking slots and we want you to come wrinkle our collective brain. Suggestions for topics might be this cool trick you learned in Django, that new 3rd-party app you heard about or a a Django project you open sourced. Anything goes, as long as it's interesting.
If you think you might want to give a talk, please post to the discussion group, or contact Wes or Evan.
Pizza and soda will be provided, so come ready to teach and ready to learn.
