I have only been to one pub meet. People were friendly but I was a bit
lost. Most people seemed regulars? For me personally demonstrations and
talks possibly more useful at my stage but I can see for more
established developers pub meetup useful.

The reason I ask about GIS is I think python has a lot of potential in
GIS. I use for ArcGIS on Oracle. Also interested in it's use with QGIS
never heard of gdal (will look up).

I haven't managed to make it to a pub meeting but really should do.
Having more stuff in my calendar makes it even more tricky. So I'd
prefer to keep it simple. I think the issue with talks is that it is
tricky getting a stream of good talks. So having regular pub meetings
with the occasional talk is more feasible.

We (at the School of GeoSciences) have a good number of people using
python in a GIS context, both together with arcgis and gdal and friends.

Any particular questions?
