Well, after all of these months, the time for PyCon is nearly here! The
two tutorial days will be on the Wednesday and Thursday of next week,
followed by three days of talks and four days of sprints. The sprints,
by the way, are free ��� no admission is charged ��� and are a great way to
get your feet wet contributing to an open-source project of your choice!
(See http://us.pycon.o... for the groups participating.)
Meanwhile, this Thursday, the 11th, it will be time for another Python
As usual, after an optional 6:00pm dinner together at Figo Pasta on
Howell Mill, we will head over to the GTRI Food Processing technology
building for our 7:30pm meet-up. Besides the usual round of
announcements, stories, and book- club news, we have two major talks
* Matt Culbreth will talk about: "Figuring Out If IronPython Really Works"
* I will give my PyCon talk: "Learning Hosting Best-Practices From WebFaction"
If anyone else wants to talk, just email me with your topic and I will
see about adding you to the schedule; I thought we were going to have
more pre-PyCon practice talks, but maybe Alfredo's was the only other
local one, who already gave it in January?
Speaking of which: I hope the January meet-up went well without me, and
I'm sorry for going out of state and forgetting to turn the A/V
equipment over to anyone so that it could be recorded! Now I won't get
to see what I missed. :-/ But I'll have the equipment at our meeting
this week, for us to give it one more good use before it gets turned
back over to the PyCon folks for recording the conference next week.
Hopefully they'll loan it to us for another year when they're done. :-)
