Meeting up early

Had our SoCal python interest group meeting last night; 7 people showed up. Very interesting! Meeting in person is higher bandwidth than talking online ;).

Grig gave his PyCon talk on Agile Testing methodologies. Very thorough presentation; lots of good software out there. Someone should give his PyUnitPerf software a try already! I won't give you the punchline of his talk, you should go to PyCon (or read his blog)...

I gave a short demo of my supercalifragilisticexpialidotious side project on annotating URIs. Natch, my laptop died just as I was setting up. 1st time in months. What is it about demos!? Anyway, good thing that it was mostly a Web demo, so I could swipe someone else's computer, and the crash prevented me from showing my PowerPoint. Probably a good thing there, too. People were very nice and enthusiastic about the possibilities.

The pizza was good, too.

Resolved: we will advertise more widely. We will do some intro talks (people wanted to hear about our experiences with Quixote, I wanted to hear about Greg McClure'sexperiences with CherryPy, Daniel Arbuckle was queried re metaclasses). We may meet at the dank & deserted marine lab again. We discussed a couple of ideas for community participation in Python stuff, too. More anon.
