Yeah, 10 years is quite long time. Let me see what all I can recollect from
those early meetups.
I attended my first bangpypers meetup in late 2005 (or may be early 2006).
It was at ThoughtWorks. I vaguely remember Anand Pillai, Ramki (Redhat)
and a person called Tom from that meetup.
There used to be very interesting discussions those days. This guy Tom
built programming system called livelogic, that allows you a define you own
programming language on top of python using some kind of macro system. It
was really fascinating.
The website for live-logix is not there anymore, but you can find a copy of
it on the wayback machine.
It is really fascinating to see bangpypers come all the way here, becoming
such a big group!
