    I liked a lot the porting to python 3 talk.
    The other talk was also very good but not really focused on python.

    Thanks very much for the organization, even though I has to leave at 9. What a pity that I could finish the Porting to Python 3. I was not able to attend the most meetups because of the work, and today has been the first time I went to the meeting room in the ground floor. The last time I participate, I had to show my ID to the reception so that they gave me a visitor's pass which permitted me to upstairs. Today at 19h two the other guys we arrived the reception, who didn't know anything about meetup and it took us all half a hour to find out where was the event. I'd suggest that the exact place be indicated very precisely so that the people who participate for the first time can easily find it. Or just in case, the change of the room. It would also be nice if the reception can be well notified.
