I just wanted to make an announcement here for any who might be interested. The Python Atlanta group is having a special presentation next week on WSGI and repoze. If you don't know anything about either of these two things, I will add that this should be interesting to anyone who wants to know more about web development with python. Sign up for the event is required through the Python Atlanta meetup group. The event is free, but we need your name on our list to get you through security at turner. Here is the site: http://python.meetup.com/46/

More details for this event can be found at the link above. Since we are flying people in for this presentation, we would love to have a big turnout. We will also have plenty of freebies including Ubuntu CDs. Here is the official sales pitch:

Get a babysitter, quit your job, stop your vacation plans, skip out on karate practice, or, escape from jail, you DO NOT WANT TO MISS, the meeting this Thursday, Dec, 13th. White-Wolf, Atlanta-Plone, and other individuals, pitched in to FLY OUT the developers of Repoze from Fredericksburg, VA. Repoze is a taste of the future of Python web development where you can run Plone, Django, Turbogears, Pylons, Trac, and even Wordpress all under the same URL with the same rendering engine like Deliverance, and mod_wsgi. The developers will be giving a demo on how this works! If you have any interest in Python Web Development, this is a meeting you cannot afford to miss. Make sure you RSVP here, ASAP, as there will be limited room for this event.

For the people attending Thursday's meeting we will have an usual amount of free swag. There will be 50 dual DVD copies of the latest version of Open Solaris, available on a first come, first serve basis, donated from Sun. There will be 10 copies of Ubuntu 7.10, available on a first come, first serve basis, donated from Canonical. Finally, there will be a one randomly selected person who get a free, no strings attached copy of, The Best Of Make, courtesty of O'Reilly, and the PyAtl Bookclub.

Finally, we will be taping this event in 24P HD, so this is your chance to become famous, impress friends, and appear on internet in High Def. We will be making a Google Tech Talk out of the presentation, and linking to it from the fancy new PyAtl Plone 3.0 website. We will use the opportunity to get a group video clip that will run on the PyAtl website.
