[Python Edinburgh] Poll results

I’d check on Open Tech Calendar [1], and Edinburgh2 [2] to see what nights are “free” for techy stuff before committing to a regular date.

I’d also suggest getting in touch with someone at CodeBase [3] as they host similar events (EdinburghJS comes to mind).

I liked Aaron’s idea of having them at a lower frequency than monthly—there are not many people that can & will talk about Python stuff to have two–a–month indefinitely.
