May Sydney Python Meetup
Last night's meetup was another cracker, thanks for organising it Alan.
We started with a discussion of how to replace meetup.com, as no one was keen to pay the subscription fee. We settled on announcing the meetings on upcoming.org, establishing our own mailing list and an intention to set up a web presence. Sorted.
Then Alan gave a demonstration of how to develop web applications using CherryPy, SQLObject and Cheetah. As per previous meetings the room was split between those who said "but you could do all of this in Zope and Plone with APE" and those who said "we could, but we don't want to".
There was also a little discussion of the Python Challenge and I managed to successfully solve a problem during the meeting. I'm now only about five steps behind everyone else. I shall apply myself diligently to the task over the weekend though. By the time of the next meeting in July I may even have solved one or two more.
