Dear Python Edinburgh,

We've been planning to organise talks and other events for a while, but
frankly, I haven't got around to it. Fortunately, FanDuel, one of the
larger Python shops in Edinburgh has offered to help, so tomorrow instead
of the usual pub meetup, we'll be running a Dojo at FanDuel's offices[1],
starting at the usual meetup time of 6:30pm.

The plan is to follow something similar to the format of the London Python

1. Free beer and pizza, courtesy of FanDuel.
2. Programming tasks are proposed and voted on.
3. Attendees choose/divide-into teams to work on the winning task.
4. The teams competitively attempt to solve the problem in the most
efficient and or fun way possible for about an hour and a half.
5. Each solution is presented to everybody, and a vote is taken as to which
solution is the 'best'.
6. There are no prizes - you already got free beer and pizza!

To read more about what to expect look here:

Afterwards we'll probably wander in to one of the selection of nice pubs in
the area.

Hope to see you there!
