Post PyCon 2013 MeetUp - Beginners Track

Did you miss registration for PyCon and still want a chance to see the same presentations and collaborate with your peers? Did you register, plan to attend, but find you just can't choose between two talks? Do you find that you just can't get enough of PyCon? Join us.

 

We meet to watch recorded videos of our favorite PyCon presentations. The videos are chosen by popular vote and by using open spaces community ideas. We meet, watch the presentations, discuss the presentations and even have some mini-tutorials

 

The 2013 PyCon schedule is posted here:

https://us.pycon.org/2013/schedule/

 

Also, please note how Open Spaces works: https://us.pycon.org/2012/community/openspaces/

    Glen did a fantastic job organizing this event. There was an excellent balance struck between following the itinerary and following the whims of the attendees. At one point, we broke off for an impromptu demo on Glen's Rasberry Pi from Pycon. Very cool.

    Sorry I can't make it, woke up and my son is sick. Can't wait until the next meetup.

    June 8, 2013

    • Glen J.

      I'm sorry. I hope your son feels better. I'll send links to the videos that we watched so you can still enjoy the goodness of PyCon.

      Thank you for coming and for all of your excellent questions/discussion.

    It went better than I thought it would. We had just the right number of people and the right number of chairs. The level was consistent and easier for beginners. I'm pleased it went this well.

    Sorry, Change of plans. I will be going to the other track.

    Wasn't PyCon in March??

      It's "post" buddy :-)

      @Victor: waaaay post. But late is better than never ;)

  • James N.

    Looking forward to hearing the talks and meeting other Pyginners!

    June 4, 2013

  • Chris S.

    How long will it go ? I have some plans in the afternoon

    June 3, 2013

    • Glen J.

      We're scheduled until 5pm. However, you can come and leave whenever you like. Note that this is the BEGINNERS track -- so Novice level talks only will be seen on Saturday. We meet at another time for the other tracks.

      June 4, 2013

  • Glenn N

    SF too far.

    May 15, 2013

    • Glen J.

      I understand. Space is hard to get so we had to pick this place. The videos are online, so you can participate from home too :)

      I have the same problem as Glenn, anyway thank you for your info, Glen. The question is how can I check the videos?

    Clearly I will be voting for my own talk ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=5A5Iw9z6z2s

    April 18, 2013

    • Glen J.

      Adam, this is a great talk! It's an experienced level talk, so it won't be on the list for Saturday. But, we will here if you want to post again (and even have an Open Spaces about it): http://www.meetup.com...­

      June 3, 2013

  • Eric C.

    Just let me know where.

    April 21, 2013

    • Glen J.

      Eric. It's been slow coming, but we are finally ready to do this on the weekend. It's in SF and details are in the MeetUp page above. This is the beginner track, however. We're doing the normal track later.

    making space by switching to 'normal' track

    1 · May 15, 2013

    • Glen J.

      Thank you for switching to make space! That's awesome!

      June 3, 2013

  • Carlo C.

    switching to the normal track. Glen, I really appreciate your efforts. Thanks.

    May 15, 2013

    • Glen J.

      Thank you for switching! This is why we split it in two sections. Our space was too small, so I wanted to break it down into several groups to match the space.

    Assuming a laptop is a must but will I need to bring anything else?

      Sounds good, Thanks.

    • Glen J.

      You may also want to either bring your lunch, or a few extra dollars for pizza. I'll try to get a pizza run organized (hopefully within everyone's dietary constraints).

      June 3, 2013

  • Victor Vũ N.

    Time to make new Python friends!

    June 2, 2013

    • Glen J.

      Excellent! Saturday is that time :)

    Since it wasn't immediately clear to me, here is the link to the other track. http://www.meetup.com/silicon-valley-python/events/119476152/confirm/

    I'll leave the country on May 19 :(

    April 23, 2013

    • Glen J.

      Sadly, we did not get to do this before you left the country. Everything is *finally* committed. However, it won't be the 19th before you leave. I'm terribly sorry.

      Thank you so much Glen, I really appreciate you're caring about this. I wish you a big success and a great event! Hopefully we'll meet someday in the future :)

  • Glenn N

    Grrr, I hoped this group was South Bay centered. SF is too far for me.

    May 15, 2013

  • James N.

    Hey, any word on the location for this yet? Unless I'm missing something and this is happening in some virtual/digital secret location?

    May 14, 2013

    • Glen J.

      I just finished the call to confirm the space. We have to move the date one last time *sigh* BUT we have a hard commitment to space, two rooms, and even a ping pong table. We also have confirmation for a second day/session for beginners!

      I'll get details posted before Morning! *whew* :)

      May 14, 2013

    • James N.

      That's awesome! Thanks for taking the time to organize this. I'll personally make good use of the second day session ;)

      May 14, 2013

  • Glenn N

    Memorial Day weekend - at least you won't have to find space for a large group.

    1 · April 24, 2013

    • Glen J.

      Ack! I tried to remove the current date because we have a new space and we're finalizing the details. This is a mistake (and I don't have the final date yet). I'm so sorry for the confusion. We have a good space that is 90% ready to commit to us -- I just don't have the proper date yet. My apologies for the confusion.

      April 24, 2013

  • Chris S.

    Sadly, I have long standing plans for that weekend.

    Pretty much all the videos have been posted (117 of them, including most of the 3 hr tutorials). Will this be happening ?
