Details

This evening we have another action-packed Python meetup!

Our first presenter will be Chris Lindner, a computational astrophysicist, who will give a short talk about where Python does and doesn't get used in academic research, and why that might be.

Next up, Aaron Meurer will talk about 10 things people don't realize they're missing because they're not using Python 3. (I know there is a really solid pun somewhere in here about "code points" and Unicode support, but I can't quite work it out.)

Finally, we'll break up into groups and try doing a "peer dogfooding" or show & tell session, where people can get others to try out the stuff they've been working on, and get feedback and ideas. We are lucky to have a great diversity of backgrounds and experience levels at almost every meetup, and many people are working on side projects. We currently have 90 people signed on the RSVP, so it's going to be a rowdy time. This will be our first time trying something like this, so any suggestions are welcome.

Also, don't forget, the Capital Factory has kindly arranged for discounted parking for us in the Omni parking garage - only $5 (roughly 2.6e-10 WhatsApps). Just make sure to pull into the garage *after* 6pm, and obtain a validation ticket at the end of the meetup from the CapFactory staff.
