Just a reminder that python north west restarts tonight, 6pm at the
Rain Bar in Manchester.

I'll be giving away the spare notes from my tutorial at Europython for
those interested. Also, APress have very kindly donated us some eBook
coupons for attendees. (They initially offered books, and then
realised that they couldn't get them to us in time, so both offers are
very welcome :-)

I'll bring a penguin with me, (oh and a small stack of booklets :) so
that people know at least one familiar face to look for :)

Original message was this:


A few people will have already noticed some small comments about this, but
we're plotting to restart python northwest. Specifically, we're restarting
this month. Details:

   * When: Thursday 24th September, 6pm

   * Where: Rain Bar, Manchester:
      - http://www.rain-bar.co.uk/
      - 80 Great Bridgewater Street, Manchester, M1 5JG
      - map: http://tinyurl.com/mn4qnl

   * Who: Who can come? If you're reading this YOU can :-)
     More specifically anyone from beginners, the inexperienced through deeply
     experienced and all the way back to the plain py-curious.

   * What: Suggestion is to start off with a social meet, and chat about
     stuff we've found interesting/useful/fun with python recently. Topics
     likely to include robots and audio generation, the recent unconference,
     and europython.

   * Twitter: http://twitter.com/pynw / #pythonnorthwest / #pynw

How did this happen? I tweeted the idea, a couple of others seconded it,
the David Jones pointed out "it easier to arrange for a specific 2 people
to meet than it was to e-mail a vague cloud of people and get _any_ 2 to
meet anywhere.", so that's where we'll be.

If twitter feedback is anything go by, we're hardly going to be alone, so
please come along - the more the merrier :-) Better yet, please reply to this
mail saying you're coming along!

More generally, assuming this continues, pynw will probably be every third
thursday in the month, maybe alternating between technical meets and social
ones. (topic for discussion perhaps?)

Please forward this to anyone you think may be interested!

See you there!
