Parking and entry details:

The building is the northwest corner of 67th and Frances and the Gordmans entrance is next to the “g” sign, about midway along the building.  There’s parking directly out front, but it sometimes fills up in the evenings.  The garage around back is open to the public after 5:30 or 6 as well.

The building doors lock at 5, so Aaron will be standing by to badge people in starting around 6:45.  If you’re running late, or early, just shoot him an email and I can meet you.

March Meeting Info – v2

Filed under: info,Uncategorized,UpcomingEvents — Steve @ 9:28 am

Jeff will be presenting the opening round of our todo.txt respin with python for the “New to Python or Programming” section.  The goals for the night’s section will be:

  •  Defining the problem
  •  Initial architecture of the solution
  •  Building a corner-stone class
  •  Writing our first tests (not necessarily in that order <g>)

To get ready for the fun, bring a laptop or device with:

We don’t have an advanced level talk set in stone yet, so if you are yearning to talk about a project you are working on, something in the standard or 3rd party libs that saved your bacon or just made you say “Cool.” We’d love to have you tell us about it. No experience required.

Door Prize: O’Reilly Python Book.

Wednesday, March 21st at 7pm.  See the where and when page for directions.

In the future Jeff plans on doing a session on supporting Python 2 and 3 just like CherryPy does.   And since he plans on using Tox which was written by Holger Krekel (the same guy who develops py.test) we figured now would be a good time for us to tryout py.test.
