We invite you to RSVP for our Saturday April 12th monthly meetup.

This month our theme is “Python Inside” -- Python as used inside larger applications and solutions. We are very happy to have two speakers this month.

Jonathan Thomas, the CEO of OpenShot Studios, LLC, is the creator and lead developer of OpenShot Video Editor. Jonathan will be presenting how Python is used in his open-source video editing application. Last year he ran a successful Kickstarter campaign raising $45K to port his free video editor from Linux to Windows/Mac. Jonathan will be covering: User Interfaces in Python (GTK+ and Qt), Integrating Python and C++, Editing videos with Python, tools and migrating to Python 3.

Kee Kimbrell, CTO of HUGEdata and Raul Peralta, EVP of Software Development will be presenting on how HUGEdata has taken the power of Python and implemented it into their high speed analytical database, allowing you to develop scalable distributed code in Python. Topics they will be covering are: Distributed Python in SQL, Overview of Python in HUGEdata, SQL System with Python built on Top – How we Built It!, HUGEdata and Python – How It’s Integrated!, Python Functions and Examples.

We will also be raffling off several books from O’Reilly Media and a PyCharm Personal License from JetBrains.

If you have not attended a meeting recently, we have very nice meeting space provided by Improving Enterprises who also provides free pizza and drinks.

This month we will start at 1pm to give Python beginners a chance to ask questions and to meet and talk with other members of our growing group. This hour is optional and we will start our official meeting at 2pm.

After our presentations we will open the floor to lightning talks. You are welcome to present any examples of Python embedded inside other applications.
