Hey Chip, sorry for the short notice, yet I could give a short talk about using Python to convert addresses to latitude\longitude values using the Google Enterprise Map API - if I understand Matt correctly, it would blend well into his talk on pyshp...

Ron, can we leave this as a "as time allows" thing? Would that be okay with you?
Chip, sounds good by me!
Chip, fyi running late
Just a shout-out, I am a newbie to Python, if anyone could bring links to resources for absolute beginners I would greatly appreciate it!

Hi! We can't get there until after 8, will anything still be going on?
I don't know how long the presentations will take. There will be socializing until 9:00 pm, if nothing else.
I'd be happy to talk briefly on pyshp (a python shapefile library), matplotlib's path module and how they came in handy on a project I'm working on.

Chip, I'm not going to be able to make the meeting this time due to a work schedule change. Sorry for the last notice, but it looks like you have a few more presenters.
Zach, no worries. I'd still like to see your presentation in the future.
I don't have anything to present this time around, but I'll bring delicious cookies.

I can give a demo on scikit-learn and IPython notebook. I'm thinking about running through a classification problem using a generic data set and ensemble methods. Or text mining. Or image recognition.

Piero, awesome! I'll add you to the list.

Zach, sounds great. I'll add you to the list.
I could do a quick talk on generators. How they work, when to use them, a fun demo or two on how they can really help you in certain situations, etc.

Fine, but I can only go through it once
Ha! I see what you did there.

Does anyone use Docker?
I've looked at it a few times, including this week after they announced OS X compatibility.
I might use it if Caleb gave an awesome talk showing me how to use it

We will be meeting at the Google Fiber Space Lounge this month. The meeting time has changed to accommodate their schedule.
Still looking for volunteers for presentations. We will also have time for lightning talks. Post here if you'd like to present something.
