Keep warm everybody. If you're fiending for some Python this month, visit
us in Seattle.

We have Carlos Guestrin of Dato, Trey Causey of Facebook, and Erin Shellman
of Nordstrom dishing on Data Science.

Currently weather is showing mostly sunny with high of 52F.

Offerup is sponsoring the venue, food, and beverages. Food is tacos from El
Camion rated as a top-40 food truck for all of the US. I'm seeing about
getting a craft distiller to join us for cocktails.

ChiPy members always welcome. I'd love if Adam and Brian visit us soon, ;)
