Greetings, Pythonauts!

No doubt many of you have been anxiously awaiting news of the next Web Python meeting, counting the Thursdays with barely-contained excitement. What amazing technology will be demonstrated? Which talented and knowledgeable speakers will change the way you think about the internet?

Wonder no more. The February AWPUG meetup is only ~1.43 weeks away (Thursday the 28th), and chock full of great talks, tech, and food. This month we are focusing on event-driven frameworks in Python -- what are they, why you need them, and how you can start hacking with them today.

We'll start at 7:00pm by giving a brief overview of current events in Python and Austin tech. Cody Soyland of Umbel will then give our first talk of the evening. He'll dive into coroutines, greenlets, and gevent, and why you should be using them. At 8:00pm Jeremy Kelley of Indeed.com will give a talk on Tornado, one of the more popular callback-style frameworks in Python, by demonstrating the various components of the library. By the end of the night, you'll never have to worry about C10K again!

There will be food and drink for all, graciously provided by Continuum.io (http://continuum.io/) . Make sure to come early, so you have plenty of time to hang out before the talks start and learn about the amazing things they are doing.

BIG FAT NOTICE: We'll be meeting at the Texas Tribune on 9th and Congress instead of the Capital Factory this month. Take the elevator to the second floor, and follow the sounds of raucous nerdery.

We'll see you there!
