2.5 and beyond.

Off topics

* hosting our FREEEE Python class
* start planning for the Code Sprint Hackathon on March 18th http://
* bring your tee shirt ideas. The best idea wins: a genuine pat on  
the back.
* something unexpected is also not planned

At the historic Monadnock Building, which in the 1890s was the  
tallest building in the world.

That's 53 W Jackson Blvd, room 826.

Here's a map:,+Chicago,+IL

It's right on the blue line, and two blocks from the red line, and  
walking distance to all of the Metra termini.

Cheap parking is a few blocks away at State and Harrison, more  
expensive parking is immediately adjacent on Federal between Jackson  
and Van Buren. Take the Eisenhower all the way in until it turns into  
Congress, and you'll be right in the neighborhood. Turn right on  
State or left on Federal if you are looking for the cheap or the  
convenient recommended parking lots respectively.

***NOTE: PLEASE EMAIL mtobis aat gmail doot com with "ChiPy March" in  
your subject line to confirm your attendance.
