We found out yesterday that Flinders have double-booked us and that all of
their Victoria Square building is booked out. After scrambling to try to
find an alternate venue without success, we've had to reschedule the May
session for *Wednesday 31st May, 7pm sharp (doors at 6:30)*.
As part of that process, *we've found a new venue* that we think would be
perfect for Python Adelaide. It's still city central, still wheelchair
accessible, it has WiFi for everyone (not just those with Eduroam logins),
and we can book it directly rather than having to go through Flinders
faculty (although Romana has been super helpful, and the double booking is
in no way her fault!)
We haven't finalised that yet, so we'll announce it properly on this list
and everywhere else when we do. But we're definitely going to be meeting
somewhere in the city on the 31st, whether it's the new venue, Flinders, or
our 3rd fallback.
Apologies for the inconvenience, and see you on the 31st!
Hi everyone! (And hi LinuxSA too; I'm cross-posting this to you as
requested on Tuesday night.)
Python Adelaide's May session is on next Wednesday evening, with talks
starting at 7pm. Romana Challans will be presenting her talk on *Natural
Language Toolkit*, as well as yours truly presenting *put snek in bag plz:
A whirlwind tour of packaging in Python*.
We'll be at Flinders University's city campus at 182 Victoria Square again;
enter at the Victoria Square side of the building, and if the door is
locked phone security at the number posted on the door, tell them you're
here for Python Adelaide and they'll come and let you in.
As with last month, please bring $10 to chip in if you'd like to have pizza
afterwards, and let us know on the night if you have any dietary
*We've also got a Slack group!* You can sign up for that here:
Once you've signed up, if you want to use an IRC or XMPP client instead of
the Slack apps you can set that up here:
See you next week,
