I'm new to the group, so I don't have much experience with lightning talks. 

That said... I've been using the OpenOpt package to setup a binary integer optimization for my research and would be happy to talk about what I've been doing.

> Does anybody have a lightning talk they'd like to give on Wednesday?  A lightning talk is a quick (<5 minutes) and informal way for you to share a new trick you've learned, a library you're excited about, lessons learned from a conference you went to, a problem you're having, or anything else you think would be of interest to your fellow python people.  Slides are not necessary, demos are welcome, but you don't have to use a computer if you don't need it for your talk.
