PyATL Jam Session (In-town)

This Month's Agenda

This month we will be foregoing the usual "warm up" exercise and doing a "framework smackdown," which was proposed by member Cliff Kachinske.  You're encouraged to use the tool you're less familiar with, so we all learn more!

See here for details:

What's a Jam Session?

Jam Session meetings are intended to be hands-on, collaborative experiences with your fellow PyATL members. We'll be meeting from 7pm to 11pm to work together on whatever projects you feel like. Bring your own hobby projects, bring a work project, bring your new startup idea - whatever you like. Or, if you don't have a project of your own, come along and see what projects others are working on and sit down with them to help them out! Programmers of all experience levels are welcome! JR Rickerson will be there a bit early to help introduce people, organize, and make sure everyone is comfortable.

We recommend bringing a laptop with Python installed so you can join in the fun!

Each month we'll typically start with a warm-up of some kind we can do fairly quickly as a group.  Since we've done most of the simpler Python Challenge puzzles, I'm going to try putting together a short Code Kata for each warm-up instead.  If you're unfamiliar with Code Katas, you can read about them here: http://codekata.pragprog.com/codekata/

After the warm-up we may work on a group collaborative project, go through a tutorial together, or just start into whatever discussion that comes up.

You can also work on projects on your own or in small groups if you'd prefer that to the overall discussion / project, and feel free to ask questions or share your experiences with the group.

Materials for each jam session can be found in the PyATL GitHub repository: https://github.com/pyatl/jam-sessions

Ideas for project tutorials or collaborative projects can be found on our Google Spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ak8pFoKB6kK-dFdlejg1RloxaUxsSVNXZTFrWmdJdHc
