Hi All,
The June PyGameSF meet up will be at the Sycip conference room on the fourth floor of the 
main San Francisco public library beside civic center BART. The library closes at 8pm so we 
will reconvene to frjtz on hayes street for dinner/drinks afterwords. This month's
presentations are:

* Al Sweigart: "Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python."

Al's presentation will cover his book which teaches kids (and adult beginners) how to program by making 
computer games. Al will talk about the methodology his book uses, things he's learned about teaching.

The book is under a Creative Commons license and is available for free at http://inventwithpython.com.
The book is also for sale in print on Amazon.com.

* Casey Duncan: "Grease: it's a game framework, no it's a game engine, no it's a framework for making game engines; and now it's more than just vaporware!"

Grease is an open-source project for rapid Python game development. Casey is going to give a little guided tour of 
the not-just-sci-fi-anymore Grease API and talk a bit about future directions. He is also going to talk about using 
Sphinx to document Grease, and how you can, and should, use it to document your own projects and ideas.

PyGame SF is an informal group meet up in San Francisco for Software engineers interested in python, OpenGL, audio, 
pygame, SDL, programming and generally anything to do with multimedia development. The format of our meetings typically 
involve several people giving presentations on projects they are developing followed by group discussion and feedback.

If anyone else would like to give a micro presentation, show demos or just talk about what they are doing or generally 
give examples of any relevant software they are working on please feel free to head along.
