I want to personally thank Richard, Eddy and Simeon for their effort last
night. Richard made the Django templates very accessible for beginners. I've
never used databrowse (or really even knew what it was). So, Eddy's talk
helped me. Talks like this are helpful for me, not to know the details, but
to know 1) What it is, 2) Why it's useful, and 3) When I may need to go read
the docs if I need it in the future. So, thank you, Eddy!
And, of course, I think Simeon's talk was *amazing*. Both times I've heard
Simeon talk, I've been so impressed with how much of the good extra bits of
Django he knows. I'm not to that level.... So, it's *very* helpful to learn
about these extra pieces.

In fact, frankly, that talk was so full of tips and tricks, I need to go
back and review the tape so I can review each concepts again. In fact,
Simeon also used some other tools (like pip) from his previous talk. I need
to compile a list of these tools to review so I can duplicate his very
efficient pipeline -- I don't have any many Django instances as he has, but
I have quite a few (8 at the moment). And, this would make my life much
easier to manage.

At the end of the day, I'm always impressed with the talent we have at
BayPIGgies and am proud to be a member of this community.

Warmest Regards,

Glen Jarvis
P.S. I'll try to get a working rough draft of the video completed by Monday
so we can all review. Because I didn't have an audio cable last night, we
couldn't get a direct microphone from the wireless mic :(   But, the camera
should have picked up enough for this to be usable. And, we have some extra
audio output recorded from other volunteers if needed.
