Doors are open from 6-7pm. If you arrive late and it's locked you can try messaging me via Meetup, calling reception, or texting the number at the front entrance.

Come work on Python projects, get programming help, help others, and hang out.

Python project nights are unstructured chances for Python developers to work together, mentor each other, connect socially, teach, learn, or do whatever else it is Python developers want to do together.

Our project nights are great ways to build the Python community, by allowing them to meet and interact in whatever way they find most beneficial.

Things to bring: a wireless-enabled laptop and power cord.

=============================

I will give a talk about scons, test driven development, or maybe the Tin Can API if I end up using it for one of my personal projects.

Speaking of talks, you should give a talk! Tell us about something interesting you've built, a neat tool you've used, or a terrible way you've misused Python.
