We are rapidly approaching the second week in December which means another PhillyPUG meetup! Based on those who attended the meeting in November, we unanimously decided that our December meeting would be a drink-up rather than an meetup. In case it is non-obvious, we are planning to have our meeting at a bar in Philly to primarily socialize rather than conducting a formal meeting with a technical presentation. We have not yet selected the particular bar, however, it had been suggested that we meet at Prohibition Taproom:
Prohibition was suggested b/c it is basically the same location as our last meeting at Sungard. It seemed to work out for those taking public transit and for those who had to drive as there were a few pretty large parking lots w/in 2 blocks of the venue. If there are other suggestions for location that you would like to make, send that out to the list and if there is enough traction for that venue, we can put up a Doodle poll to vote ... otherwise we will assume Prohibition.
Next, we still have not picked a final date yet, however, we are leaning toward Monday 12/13. If you don't like that day, please weigh-in on the Doodle poll: http://doodle.com...
While the drink-up will be primarily a social outing, there are a few orders of business that I would like us to cover:
1. Jason will give us an update on the phillypug.org website
2. We will continue to work out the details on our mentoring session(s): http://www.meetup...
3. Decide on our topics and speakers for the red snake meeting in January
One last aside, we have a few members of PhillyPUG who are part of myYearbook.com. In case you missed it earlier, they got some nice press today on TechCrunch. Congrats Gavin and Brian!
Now, the last thing, really... In case you are unaware, Monetate is hiring like crazy and they need Python gurus. If you want a Python job at a cool Philly start-up, contact Tom Janofsky when you come to the December drink-up (... I'm assuming you can make it Tom ...). But be sure to tell Tom I referred you so I can get an iPad: http://monetate.c... :)
