Hey all,

tl;dr - Get your ticket:

Next month we are running another Dojo!  Twig are graciously hosting
us again and will be providing pizza, beer and soft drinks. The
office address is:

    4th Floor
    14 North Claremont Street
    G3 7LE

Twig are growing again and are currently on the look out for developers


Please email cquinn at twig-world.com to find out more.

For those of you that don't know, a Dojo is a fun coding event where
we split into teams and hack on a problem for about 90 minutes. The
focus is on getting something working in that time period. Some
teams choose to take a TDD approach while others hack away. Everyone
has fun and then we share our results with a show and tell session
at the end.

The Dojo is designed for *all* levels of Python developer, it's
great fun and we make sure we cater for complete beginners through
to advanced developers. This is a great way to start learning to
write Python.

Last time the challenge was to create a valid crossword given a set
of words. This turned out to be somewhat tricky and we had an
interesting range of results.

To find out more about the Dojo, we follow the format of the London
Python Dojo[1] and I also created notes for running the Dojo as I
forget things:


The Dojo's are usually really well attended so make sure to get your
ticket now at:


See you all there!
