If you're like me, you registered dozens of domain names over the years for ideas that didn't *always* see the light of day. After many failed attempts at creating a self-sustaining side project, I finally got one off the ground last year: Gator - smart scheduled delivery for your Slack messages. After about a year and half of nights and weekends work, Gator now pulls in about $1,000 in revenue per month - which makes it $999 more successful than my previous best attempt. In this talk I'll share the story of how Gator got off the ground and some lessons I've learned along the way. I'll also cover some details of the Python stack I used to build Gator, the APIs I rely on to be successful, and some communities I found which could help you, too. About: Andrew Baker is on a mission to empower developers to change the world with software. As Director of Developer Education at Twilio, Andrew leads the teams responsible for Twilio’s documentation and training programs, including TwilioQuest. Andrew started his career as a Python web developer in Washington, D.C.. He discovered his passion for teaching developers after running Docker workshops at meetups and conferences before joining Twilio in 2015. Since then he has sought out new ways to challenge and empower developers through documentation, training, and other aspects of Twilio’s developer experience. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Event Details: https://excella.zoom.us/j/95891844763?pwd=L0hFSElVcVhpcXQ0MzN2L3RqRHZjQT09 Meeting ID:[masked] One tap mobile [masked],,[masked]# US (New York) [masked],,[masked]# US (Germantown) Dial by your location [masked] US (New York) [masked] US (Germantown) [masked] US (Chicago) [masked] US (San Jose) [masked] US (Tacoma) [masked] US (Houston) Meeting ID:[masked] Find your local number: https://excella.zoom.us/u/admh7Ag3mu Join by Skype for Business https://excella.zoom.us/skype/95891844763

Project Night

We'll have at least one experienced Python web developer on hand to help less experienced people with their projects. We host these project nights each month in addition to our normal talk meetups. Agenda • 6:30-7:00pm - Arrive, eat and catch up (thank Chief (http://agencychief.com/) for the food!) • 7:00pm-8:45pm - Coworking What could you do at project night, you ask? • Work on your own side projects with other people doing the same • Get help learning Python (or Django or Flask) from more experienced developers. (Or, help mentor other attendees if you're already a whiz) • Ask for a code review for a project you've been working on by yourself • Talk through a particular problem with someone who has solved it before • Just hang out and have some cool conversations! We are cross-listing this event with DC Python, so please RSVP to only one so we can get an accurate headcount.
