My name Curtis Alley and I really enjoyed last nights presentation. I am new to python. If it is not too much trouble, could you send me the snippet of code you demo last night?

Subject: [pyatl] Python Atlanta is tonight!

How did Thursday arrive so quickly this week?  I just realized what day it was, or I might otherwise have missed tonight's meetup! :)

Python Atlanta meets tonight, as usual, in the back room generously provided by Manuel's Tavern.  The actual meeting and talks will get started at 7:30pm, but people start showing up much earlier to beat traffic, have dinner, and to be happily sipping a beer by the time the theatrics actually get underway.  I myself will probably be there quite early, say by about 4:30pm, to beat traffic.

Our talks should be good tonight:

* As usual, I will open the meeting by writing a Python program right on
  the screen, so that newcomers can get a feel for how a practiced
  programmer goes from a blank screen to a simple working program.

* John Hackett and Kelsey Hightower will talk about list comprehensions,
  a very popular Python feature that not all programmers understand at
  first glance, but that is crucial to understanding modern Python code.

* Finally, Rick Copeland will share with us about some of the new tools
  in his toolbox - in this case, "Gevent" and "", which he uses
  when building dynamic web sites.

Finally, email me if you have a quick 5-minute lightning talk you would like to share about anything you've learned over this past month about Python; we always benefit in the group from seeing what each other are doing with Python.

See everyone tonight!
