There has been a room change for tomorrow's TriZPUG meeting.

The location is 328 Phillips Hall, the place where we normally meet, and 
the location of our first two Plone Boot Camps.

The meeting notice is here:


The directions are here:


This meeting will be hosted by Josh Johnson in my absence. Josh, you 
might want to post your cell number in case anyone is lost trying to 
find the meeting room.

Lee Nelson of Research Engineer and Lab Manager of the Constructued 
Facilities Lab at NCSU will speak about his use of Python in structural 
engineering simulations. I'm hoping Chris Church will also talk about 
PyCon, as I will not be able to be at the meeting this month.

PyCon was quite great this year. ChiPy was a good host. The video is 
being rapidly assembled this year as a couple of people are very gung-ho 
about getting that done fast.

My favorite talks at PyCon this year were on topics getting under the 
hood of Python. The talk on listobject.c was completely awesome. Also 
great were talks on weak references, the import statement, Grok, Zope 3, 
Repoze, and Supervisor.

There was a PyCon exhibit hall this year. I collected enough schwag into 
a goodie bag to tide us over with door prizes for a number of meetings. 
A good discovery was that we are vastly under-utilizing O'Reilly's User 
Group program. Essentially, TriZPUG can get you any book you are willing 
to review.
