NOTE: IHOP is a relatively new venue for us. Please be considerate of the servers, who aren't used to dealing with our dinner crowd. Don't change seats once you sit down. Get your orders in early so they're not slammed in the kitchen. Tip generously. They don't expect everyone to order food, but a good 80% of us should be having some kind of dinner.

James Mertz will give a brief overview of PyCon 2019 held in Cleveland, OH. He’ll cover some of the interesting talks, some cool announcements, show off some swag, and more.
