This is the August monthly meeting. Normally some of us go on to the pub afterwards.

Corran Webster will talk about Internationalising Python Applications.

This talk will look at the basics of internationalising your Python code using the locale, gettext and pybabel libraries, and exploring the workflow that you need to follow.

Afterwards, if we have time, I'd like to have a round-table where people can ask questions about anything to do with Python, share interesting things they know or do, and generally help to expand our group understanding. Remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question - we're all allowed not to know things.


**How CamPUG uses**

We mainly use meetup as a way of publicising meetings, at which it is very good. We also use the RSVP mechanism to get some idea of how many people will turn up to a meeting, but this is very inaccurate - at best, we normally get between half and two-thirds of the "yes" numbers attending.

We do not require people to pay for meetings, or acquire tickets, and we do not "take a register" of who actually turns up. We don't even insist that people have to use meetup to indicate they're coming. It is important to me that this be a free and open meeting.

This does mean that we could have a problem when a meeting is very popular and reaches the practical room size - i.e., how many will safely fit in our meeting room. Given our new venue, we don't think that is likely to happen in the near future, but we have put a limit on the number of "yes" RSVP replies: larger than we think might be comfortable in the room, but hopefully not too large.
