get on board with helping at PyCon 2010!

From: Brandon R.

Greetings, fellow Python Atlantans!

Be sure to read to the end of this email; there's an IRC meeting
tomorrow for anyone interested in helping with PyCon next year.

First, I want to thank everyone who came out for our Python Atlanta
meet-up last week!  Because of the conflict with a religious holiday it
was a small group, but we still had more than a dozen people present,
and the meeting included my summary of PyCon (which I will write up this
week and send out as an email), and Rick Copeland's presentation on the
Python macro package that he has designed.

Second, I would like volunteers to speak at upcoming meetings!  Here are
some topics that people expressed interest in last week; if you think
you could talk for ten or twenty minutes about one of them, email me
back privately at [address removed] and let me know!

  - Testing techniques
  - Testing frameworks (py.test, nose)
  - Web application testing (Selenium, Windmill)
  - Python documentation
  - The Sphinx documentation system
  - doctests, docstrings, and how they both work
  - Distributed Version Control (DVCS): what it is, how it works
  - Mercurial, and why Python chose it as their DVCS
  - Django

Third, David Goodger has asked me to share the following information
(quoted below), which - if you can find and run an IRC client tomorrow
at 2:00 pm - can get you connected to one of the periodic discussions
that happen online about PyCon, as the organization turns from Chicago
and re-orients itself towards preparing for Atlanta 2010!

I'm setting my alarm right now, to make sure that I'm at the meeting.
I'm not sure exactly what will be discussed; if there are interesting
results I'll be sure to let you know over email, too.  Note, though,
that I'm *not* planning on making this Python Atlanta Meetup mailing
list a PyCon 2010 list!  Soon, conversation will shift off into other
venues (like the pycon-organizers list), and - except for a little
mention in each of my monthly meeting invites - this channel will return
to being all about our Atlanta Meetup.

Thanks!
