Dallas-Ft. Worth Pythoneers Meeting THIS Saturday

This Saturday we'll be holding our 4th Saturday meeting of the DFW Pythoneers, at the usual location of bookstore in Richardson. For directions, visit the website. We start at 2pm and run until 5pm, and then go out for a group dinner.

At this meeting one of our local members, Jeremy Dunck, will be giving us a preview of a 60-minute advanced Django tutorial he is helping to give at OSCON next month. The advanced material will cover the unicode branch, signals and either stateful views or gis branch.

Since many of our members are not experienced with Django, Jeremy will present a 45-minute introduction to Django first, which will cover URLConf, views, models and perhaps middleware.

By the way, I've been contacted by a developer at the Dallas Travelocity office, who is looking for Python developers with experience in Django or Genshi. If you're interested, let me know and I can put you in touch.

And just to give a heads-up for July, Patrick R. Michaud has agreed to give our group a presentation on the status of support for Python in the virtual machine, Parrot, underlying Perl 6 and many other languages. If you're not familiar with what Parrot is, check out:

Patrick will present to us on the 2nd Saturday of July, the 14th.

See you there!
