This month to ring in all-hallows eve, the python meetup will abandon the speaker/listeners model; attendees will split up into teams and attempt to tackle a set of challenges designed to naturally progress through the basics of the language. We will start a bit earlier than usual as this meetup will probably run closer to the 2hr mark than usual. As always there will be free soda, beer, and pizza - feel free to supply your own costume!
We are also pleased to announce that O'Reilly Media has agreed to sponsor this hack-a-thon and provide us with some neat prizes!
Please note: If there is a consensus to move the meetup from the 31st I am open to it. If we continue with the last Thursday of the month we will run directly into thanksgiving next month as well.
