We are pleased to announce the program for the next Santa Cruz 
Python meetup on Tuesday, October 13, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM, in the 
Atrium Classroom at Cruzio, 877 Cedar Street, Santa Cruz, CA.

View details and RSVP for the meetup:

Regular monthly Santa Cruz Python meetups are now held on the 
second Tuesday of the month at Cruzio.


Announcements: 6:00 - 6:15 PM

Django app case study: 6:15 - 6:30 PM

Tané Tachyon will present and demonstrate a Django app she 
recently did for a local car dealer.  She will discuss the 
business practices it was intended to replace, show how it 
works, and then open things up to 
questions. http://tachyonlabs.com/ <http://tachyonlabs.com/>

Math Tutor for Kivy: 6:30 - 7:15 PM

With just around 500 lines of code, you can build a math tutor 
application that does arithmetic and can easily be deployed to 
Android, iOS, Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Thanks to the 
beautiful Kivy library, the process is really straight forward, 
and building the interface with the Kivy language is amazingly 
pain free and easy to start with. Bring your laptop and join us 
as we hack through and build your own Math Tutor app with Kivy!

Daniel Gopar is a Software Engineering student at CSUMB, who 
enjoys hacking on Emacs (the one *true* editor!) and learning 
all things Python. http://www.pygopar.com/ <http://www.pygopar.com/>

Open forum: 7:15 - 8:00 PM

During this time, we may have a spontaneous and informal 
presentation, including topics on web frameworks (Pyramid, 
Flask, Django), tools we use (Fabric, buildout, Ansible), 
editors (Emacs, vim, PyCharm), events and conferences, or 
anything else that may interest the group.


Please refer potential sponsors for food, tasty beverages, or 
room rental fees to the program hosts, Chris or Steve.

Through a generous grant from the Python Software Foundation 
<https://www.python.org/psf-landing/>, our first six months of 
room rental fees are paid, so that we can deliver our program to 
Santa Cruz County. The PSF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit 
organization that promotes, protects, and advances the Python 
programming language and community. The PSF is supported by its 
members, donors, volunteers, and sponsors. Please support the 
PSF and its mission by becoming a member <https://www.python.org/psf/membership/>.
