Great news, everyone!  I hope you can make tonight's Python Atlanta
Meetup.  Thanks to the PyWorks conference being in town this week, I was
able to get three well-known, out-of-town speakers to agree to come give
short talks to us tonight!  Schedules are fluid, so don't hold it
against them if they are not able to make it, :-) but it looks like we
will get to hear from:

  Mark Ramm - Head of the TurboGears 2 project, and author of the book
     "Rapid Web Applications with TurboGears".

     Talk: "Testing your web applications with WebTest"

  Michael Foord - Visiting Altanta from England, where he works for
     Resolver Systems, Michael writes applications atop IronPython and
     C#, and wrote the "mock" testing module for Python.

     Talk: "Using Mock objects in your Python tests"

  Chris Perkins - Works at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in
     Golden, Colorado, and has been focusing on test-driven development.

     Talk: "Python documentation, Sphinx, and doctests"

My hope is that each of them will be able to give a presentation of
between 20 and 30 minutes, and then end the meeting by assembling them
into a panel so you can ask all of your Python-related testing
questions.  I hope to see you all there!  As usual, our meeting begins
at 7:30pm this evening, and ends around 9pm; though we have exciting
speakers tonight, I will make sure the meeting runs no later than 9:20.
