PyAtl Aug 9th Meeting, Atlanta, GA: Django and Elixir Presentations

by Noah Gift

For anyone that plans to be in the Atlanta, GA area on Aug. 9th, I hope you can attend the PyAtl meeting. We have Juan Pablo who is a Django instructor for the Big Nerd Ranch, traveling in for a special Django presentation. This should be very exciting as he is a true pro. I also invited our local Atlanta Ruby group to attend as well. I think it would be great to have more Python/Ruby crosstalk as the languages have so much in common.

For our second meeting, we have up and coming author, TurboGears committer, and Elixir co-creator, Jonathan LaCour. He will be giving a presentation on SQLAlchemy + Elixir.

I was a bit bummed out when I moved from Los Angeles about a year and half ago, but it turns out that Atlanta, GA is one of the Python powerhouses cities in the United States. At this point, we have the largest meetup group, although I realize not every group uses meetup. I know quite a few of us are working on books, open source projects, and commercial projects in Python. If you live around Atlanta, GA area, program in Python and haven't yet attended, your missing out!

If your city is a Python powerhouse, let me know!
