January meeting of PyATL

Via Brandon Rhodes:

This month’s Python Atlanta meeting is this Thursday, January 8th: And, I have exciting news – the chairman of the Python Software Foundation himself, Steve Holden, will be our main speaker! He will kick off our new year by giving us his own State of the Union address: in “The State of the Python Community”, he will talk about the Python community, its strengths, and its weaknesses. He will not only answer your questions about how to stay connected to the wider Python community, but will be asking you questions about how the community can be more accessible and serve you better!

Our other talk should also be great: ifPeople founder Christopher Johnson will answer the question “Why People Choose Plone” by talking about how his customers benefit from Plone, Python’s flagship CMS (content management system). He will discuss how it integrates with other web-enabled services like Salesforce, and what it is like to install and theme a Plone site for the first time.

If you are very interested in Plone, note that the Atlanta Plone group meets at the ifPeople offices this Wednesday at 5:30pm for beer, slide presentations, and talk about their favorite CMS!

Feel free to either meet up with us early at the Howell Mill Figo Pasta at 6pm (email Brandon if you’re coming so that he can get a head count), or just show up at the main meeting at 7:30pm at the GTRI Food Processing Technology Building for the presentations. Here are the meeting details, where you can RSVP and get directions.

See you on Thursday!
