The Chicago Python User Group, ChiPy, will have its next meeting
on Thursday, December 9th, starting at 7pm.  For more information on 
ChiPy see


This month's topic is testing and profiling strategies in Python.  Chris 
McAvoy will talk about doctest.  Brian Ray will talk about the hotspot 
profiler.  Ian Bicking will be talking about py.test, a unittest 
alternative.  Maybe John Roth will be able to talk about Fitnesse, a 
Wiki-based acceptance test system.

There will also be time to chat, and many opportunities to ask
questions.  We encourage people at all levels to attend.

We also want to hold a post-meeting chat to talk about Python advocacy 
in the Chicago area, and ChiPy promotion.


This month we will be meeting at Imaginary Landscape:
   5121 N. Ravenswood Ave, Chicago
It's close to the Ravenswood stop on the North Shore Metra line, and a 
modest hike from the CTA brown line (Damen stop) and red line (Argyle 
stop).  Parking is available out front.  See the website for a map. 
Buzz to come up.

We're looking to do a meeting in the suburbs in February.  If you have a 
venue we could use (in the suburbs or elsewhere, February or another 
month), please email the mailing list.  We want to move the meeting 
around to make it possible for the people from the entire Chicagoland 
area to participate.

About ChiPy

Each month we try to pick a general topic, and people who can do 
presentations around that topic.  The tentative topic for January is 
Jython.  Presentations can be short, and need not be authoritative; have 
you done something in Jython you'd like to share?  Tell us a little 
about it on the mailing list.

This will be ChiPy's 7th meeting, give or take a few.  We meet once a
month, on the second Thursday of the month.  If you can't come
this month, please join our mailing list:
