It's April! The saying goes "April Showers Bring May Flowers," but in Central Texas the flowers are already blooming and plumes of pollen are drifting across the Hill Country. Escape your allergies by staying indoors and breathing pristine, HVAC filtered air at the AWPUG April Meetup!

This month, Greg Meese will be sharing his experience with Robot Framework, a tool to make test automation easier.

    We are also planning for some bonus speakers and lightning talks!

  • April APUG Meetup

    We've got two cool talks for our April meetup tonight!

    Chris Lindner, a data scientist at Civitas Learning, will be giving a talk about how they use data science with university data to drive students to success. In his talk, he'll discuss the data science team's use of Python for accessing SQL databases, doing all things DS with Pandas and scikit-learn, visualization with Bokeh, and if there's time he will demo an app built with Flask.

    After that, Aaron Meurer will give a short talk about the latest crazy little project from David Beazley, called "Metal": https://github.com/dabeaz/me-al, which uses umlauts to dynamically decorate functions.

    Tonight's meetup food & drink is being sponsored by Civitas Learning, which brings together the best of new technology, design thinking, and data science in its mission to help over 2.3 million college students learn well and finish strong. Their cloud-based, predictive analytics platform provides deep insights to decision makers at over 733 partner campuses, and they deliver personalized, real-time recommendations directly to students, faculty, and advisors. Chris, Kaitlyn, and others from Civitas will be at our meetup tonight if you are interested in speaking with them about their company and their open positions.

    As always, we are also very grateful to the Capital Factory for providing us space, and also for providing the reduced parking rates for those parking in the Omni garage after 6pm.

    See you tonight!

  • Call for Sponsors and Speakers

    ACL Fest is over and it’s time to turn our attention to the creepiest, crawliest AWPUG Meetup of the year! It’s just over a week away, and we are still seeking sponsors and speakers. Talk about spooky!

    If you are interesting in sponsoring, please let me know via email, and copy awpug-organizers@googlegroups.com.

    If you are interested in speaking, here are some uncanny ideas for dishing out some terrifying true tales of traumatic tumult:

    You can speak about your delightfully diabolical Django setup or perhaps share with us some designs for your devilish devops systems. Maybe you have some truly terrifying Tornado tales!

    If not, maybe you share with us a story about a supernatural celery setup. Maybe you had to become a zombie-process hunter and you have still have the bite-marks to prove it!

    Do you have a purely petrifying story about Pyramid? Just as long as there are no mummies chasing you around!

    Or you could talk about Flask. That's scary enough.

    Even if you don’t have a full-length talk, maybe you have a lightning talk about a Frankenstein's monster of a project you’re working on.

    Don’t be afraid to share!

    Even if you’re not scary OR spooky, please come forward to sponsor and please volunteer to speak! It’s not as frightening as you think!

  • Austin AWPUG Meetup

    It is time. Once more, the powers of Python compel you to rally at the Texas Tribune. Once again, the greatest meetup ever conceived demands your attendance in exchange for fine food, tech talks, and great company. How can you refuse?

    This month, Texas Tribune's own Dave McLain will be talking about Varnish (an impressive HTTP caching solution that will help you survive massive traffic spikes) and how the Tribune uses it in front of Django. After that, we'll be having lightning talks, so come prepared! This month's meetup is sponsored by the awesome folks at The Daily Dot, who will be providing Torchy's Tacos and beer for all.

    It's August. It's hot. You work hard. Isn't it time you relaxed and hung out with some awesome Python gurus?

    Yes, yes it is.

  • May 2012 APUG Meetup

    Francesc has posted his slides on the PyTables site: http://www.pytables.org/docs/PUG-Austin-2012-v3.pdf

    Also, I'd like to remind folks to go over to the AustinPython.org site and sign up on the mailing list there. We'd like to move both Austin Python and Austin Web Python discussions onto that mailing list/Google group, and thereby use the Meetup.com mailing list just for organizational type things.

    Thanks again to the Texas Tribune for the use of their facilities, thanks for Zynga for the pizza and t-shirts, and thanks to Continuum Analytics for the beer!
