This is an all lightning talk meeting in conjunction with our friends at Philly.rb. There will be 10 lightning talks in total - 5 Ruby and 5 Python. Each lightning talk will be 10 minutes in length. It will be a nice opportunity to hear about a plethora of programming topics from some of your Philadelphia Ruby/Python peers. People of all skill levels are highly encouraged to join us for the meeting. Beyond good people and good tech, there will be pizza, soda, and some giveaways from our corporate sponsors.

Hope to see you there.

    Great meetup, met some good people, sad I had to leave before the last three talks but gained a LOT of great info and topics to dive into.

    Lots of food for thought and concrete examples. Very valuable.

    Excellent topics and pace. Generally very good speakers. I am impressed and appreciate the level of effort that each speaker put into preparation. The mix of topics was also interesting, some not so technical and some very technical. It was fun! Suggestion for next time: solicit topic requests from attendees (in advance, of course). It may be possible to find speakers who can talk about topics of particular interest.

    This was my first meetup and it was awesome. I can use some of the python information from the talks at my job. I will start to attend more of these.

    What an awesome meetup. The only change I'd make is a bigger space, and maybe ice for the drinks :)

    Super meeting. Kudos to all the presenters, each of whom managed to squeeze a lot of information into a small amount of time. As someone who uses both Ruby and Python, I find this kind of cross-pollination to be extremely useful.

    I think the RedSnake meeting was a success. We had a really nice turnout and a nice mix of speakers or varying topics. I was pleased to see mutual respect among the Python and Ruby communities rather than a competition. I think a meeting like we had last night will have a positive impact on the overall Philly tech scene. We seem to be getting nice reviews of the meeting on Twitter from those who attended. Informally, we plan to make RedSnake an annual event.
