I've stepped up to continue organizing of the SF Python meetup group, and first things first I would love some insight into what you, the community, would like to see happen with it. Any feedback you can provide about the following few questions will really help me get moving in the direction that best suits everyone's interests.
1) How many of you were planning around this month's meetup scheduled for Tuesday? The system automatically deleted it when the organization changed hands, and unless there's a revolt, I'm going to leave it off the schedule in favor of properly organizing the next one. I will send out an email as soon as I have details sorted out for it.
2) What are you primarily using Python for? This will help me focus the meetings on topics that interest everyone the most. Are there any emerging Python technologies or projects that you would particularly like to hear a presentation about? Do we have many Python newcomers who are interested in workshops on language fundamentals? As for the gurus among us, what would you be interested in seeing at the meetings?
3) Is anyone affiliated or acquainted with a company that would be interested in hosting or sponsoring an event? If so, please drop me a line with their name or put them in contact with me. If your company codes in Python, it'd be a great fit. Same goes for topic speakers, should anyone be or know someone who would be interested in presenting.
I'm looking forward to seeing what I can facilitate for this group, and I'm especially eager to hear what each of you would like to get from it. If any of you had an interest in organizing as well, let me know and we can get right to work on making this meetup as much fun as possible.
Meet other local Python Programming Language enthusiasts! Please join us on the second Wednesday of each month for a Presentation Night of intermediate and advanced Python talks. Please join us on the third Wednesday of each month for a Project Night of Python tutorials, mentors helping new and intermediate Python developers, sprints on Python projects, and developers working on their own projects.
