February Meetup

Warning: Location change!

6-7pm: PyCon Startup Row pitches.

Who: Any startup that uses Python in their technology stack. We are looking for 4 to 5 groups to pitch.  Anyone is welcome to attend and watch.

What: Vancouver-based startups who use Python are invited to pitch their company to some judges. You get five minutes to tell us why your idea is awesome. A panel of judges will rate the pitches on business and technical merit and the winning startup gets free tickets to Pycon in Montreal in April and a booth at Startup Row.

Why: It's an opportunity for you to grab the spotlight, practice your startup pitch and win a spot at Pycon.

7pm-onwards: There won't be a formal talk, but rather an informal round table. A quick 5 minute talk from each person about any Python related subjects, questions or topics.

Bonus points for telling us which New Years resolution about Python you have failed to keep.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
