Chicago Python User Group
=====================

RSVP now at http://chipy.org/

We have a friggen' awesome line up this month for ChiPy.

We return to ITA for the first time in a long time for a huge Python
<-> Erlang smack down. Dan and Garrett have both presented at ChiPy
many times in the past and have always amazed the audience with their
knowledge, humor, and gosh-darn good looks.

For those who do not care much about the Smack down or just need
something *more*. There will be lightening talks on social development
with Python. One lightening talk will be use the Python Bindings of
the Facebook Graph API.  More to come... This is going to rock !

We may get a live stream from DjangoCon. We will boycott tech cocktail
:p This is where nerds go, chipy.org.  Seriously, this will be a small
group and you will get a chance to meet some great Python developers
(and perhaps some Erlang developers too!?). No prior coding experience
required. All levels welcome.

Forward this to others!

When:  September 8th 2011 7 p.m
Where: ITA 15th Floor 200 S. Wacker Drive Chicago, IL 60606 312.435.2805
