Free beer! (now that I have your attention, read the whole thing for details.)
Ed Leafe will be speaking about Python and his Python database app framework (
http://dabodev.com ) to the VFP group on Nov 14, 5:30 Monadnock Building at 53
W. Jackson in downtown Chicago: Conference Room 826. I am guessing it will be a
long meeting - like till 8ish or more.
The audience will be VFP developers (VFP = MS's Visual FoxPro, a database engine
and GUI application language, OOP, etc. so we know programming, and it has some
similarities to Python: loosely typed, no declarations, human readable...) but
different enough that the talk will be fairly into level, so I doubt much
interest to a seasoned Python developer. OTHO, we are a sharp group, and may
rocket into advanced stuff, so take your chances.
All are welcome, no pay. we may have pizza and a 12 pack of beer (more is
welcome, I run across the street to the 7-11). We have a similar format to the
Chipy meeting, about 10-15 people that show up and our room is much smaller, so
if more than 2 or 3 extra people show up, we may have a seating problem. but
that is part of this message: Does someone have access to a bigger room?
Also, I don't know Ed's travel plans, but if he is here during the day and I can
secure a venue, I bet he would give a talk that would be of interest to the hard
core Python people.
Anyone have access to a room near the Loop in the afternoon Nov 14 (1-5ish) to
host a http://dabodev.com meeting/presentation/session? gut says it only needs
to accommodate 10 visitors.
For those of you that I sent this to that are not on the chipy list and have
something to offer, I suggest you join:
Chicago at python.org
about 2 posts a day, so it won't make your in-box explode.
Jen, can you forward this to Emilia? (she said her old company might want be
able to help.)
