Notice to all Washington DC area Python users:
We are pleased to be resurrecting the DC area Python interest group meetings, now called DCPIGgies. We will be having our first meeting at CNRI in Reston, Virginia on Tuesday August 31, 1999 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. The aim is to keep this meeting pretty technical.
To that goal, we're going to have two exciting presentations. For the first hour, the Digital Creations guys will be giving a talk on Zope 2.0's unique object model (acquisition, run-time classes, transactional objects, etc.) including how Python programmers might use this in their own non-Zope projects.
In the second hour, Andrew Kuchling will be talking about something XML-ish, probably processing the Open Directory Project's (www.dmoz.org) RDF dumps.
There will be question and answer periods after each talk, and we may have an "open phones" going later than 9:30 if there's interest and if Guido or I am still awake. :)
Pizza, salad, and soda will be provided. We are asking for a voluntary $5 donation at the door to cover the costs of food. It is very important that you RSVP by email to firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can get an accurate head count (otherwise you may go hungry!). We also need to make sure that we can fit everyone into our conference room, so let me know if you're coming, even if you aren't going to eat.
Directions to CNRI can be found on the Web:
See you then! -Barry
