The format is similar to an un-conference. We start with a free food and drink reception from our generous sponsor Checkr. After formal introductions, Pythonistas join up with like minds to:

- learn, share, and contribute at planned and spontaneous Special Interest Groups (SIG)
- hack on your own projects

Who should attend?
===================

- Anyone interested in our planned SIGs
- Anyone who want to hack on your work, personal or open-source projects
- Experienced devs who want to lead a regular or spontaneous discussion group
- Anyone interested in mentoring others

The plan:
-------------

* 6:00p Begin check-in
* 6:50p Introductions: tell us about your project and/or the kind of help you seek
* 7:00p Make yourself comfortable and start hacking, or attend one of the tutorials or SIGs
* 7:30p Door Close
* 9:30p Wrap up / Hard Stop
