"One of the design rules for Python has always been to beg, borrow or  
steal whatever features I liked
from existing languages..."    Guido van Rossum

Chicago Python User Group

Special Event: "Ultimate Language Blowout II"

Last time we held this event we blew the doors off Roosevelt  
University.  This month we will hold the competition in a private  
meeting room (with its own wet bar, plenty of room, and great AV) at  
Sully's House on the North side.  This meeting will surely be great  
entertainment for everyone--Everyone is welcome!  The end result is we  
will crown a winner for the best presentation. For those watching, you  
will learn some Python features from a comparative  approach.

This will be the best competition ever hosted by ChiPy.

   ** Feel Free to Redistribute this information to any language  
oriented group in Chicago land area **

The Competition
Each participant gets only 5-10 minutes (depending on entries). The  
person who makes the best case wins! They can do whatever they want--  
just as long as each presentation is about some programming language  
other than Python and make at least one comparison to Python during  
the talk.
