      Well, it can get confusing; so you can use the calendar module to make sure that one doesn't find out about the other...

    This is my first meetup. Should I bring my laptop? I wasn't going to but it said workshop instead of talks. So now I'm not sure.

      We'll have room in tonight's schedule for lightning talks, so you're welcome to bring your laptop. We're really trying to encourage more folks new to our community to come share their work, their research, their discoveries, or their random explorations into Python with everyone!

    If you can't make it, please release your rsvp/waiting list spot so that others on the waiting list can get in! Thanks!

    I will still be out of town tonight. This will make someone from the wait list happy. :-)

    I would love to attend but but this is at the same time as a hedge fund conference that I paid for. I'm an options trade and I use python.
