What we're about

Meet other local Southern Californians who love to program in Python!

All ages welcome. Socal Python enthusiasts range from UCLA/USC students to programming veterans. We all share two things in common, L.A. and Python.

Sponsors are welcome.

Recruiters are not allowed at meetups, nor do we seek any quid-pro-quo solicitation from anyone on the recruitment side of the business. (Sponsorship being the exception)

Server-Side is Dead! Long Live Server-Side (+ HTMX) [LA Django / Django Houston]

################
Note
################

This is an online event organized by LA Django and Django Houston, so please RSVP there and keep an eye out for access details:

- https://www.meetup.com/ladjango/events/282135152/
- https://www.meetup.com/django-houston/events/282146034/

################################

htmx allows you to access AJAX, CSS Transitions, WebSockets and Server Sent Events directly in HTML, using attributes, so you can build modern user interfaces with the simplicity and power of hypertext. htmx is small (~10k min.gz'd), dependency-free, extendable & IE11 compatible.

And it works great with Django (or FastAPI, Flask, or any other web framework).

This online event will include:

- A talk presented by Jack Linke (bio underneath the event description)
- A Q&A session with Jack moderated by the event hosts
- A chance to socialize and network

About Jack Linke
################

Jack Linke tends to learn the hard way - and shares the lessons from those experiences with others through blogging, tweets, and speaking engagements. He has been developing software and hardware projects off-and-on for most of his life, but much of his relevant web development experience has been hard-earned over the past four years during development of Watervize - a B2B2B SaaS web application (written in Django) to help irrigation water utility companies improve efficiency, analysis, and communication with staff and agriculture customers.

Jack’s technology interests include Python, the Django project, HTMX, GIS, graph theory, data storytelling, and visualization. He is a frequent contributor to the open source community and a contributing member of the Python Software Foundation.

His speaking experience includes briefing Generals on topics ranging from budgets to technical concepts, instructing at formal training centers, and providing software demonstrations and feature walk-throughs.

Outside of coding, Jack solves unusual math and logic problems, and makes a mess in the kitchen.
