Montréal Python 2

  • 18th Apr, 2008 at 1:07 AM

The second edition of Montréal Python was held at the Standout Jobs office, upstairs from where I work.

It’s the first chance I’ve had to attend, but I’m glad I did. It’s awesome to see so many people interested in the Python programming language.

When Arach first talked to us about holding a regular gathering of people interested in the language, we were really enthusiatic. At the office, we were bemoaning the fact that it was quite difficult to get in touch with people in the city who really knew the technology we were using. So of course we wanted to help out.

I counted at least fifty people showing up. And I think we’re going to get many more.

A turnout of 50 is quite respectable!

Is this a sporadic "when you feel like it" event, not a scheduled user group? I get the sense it's a "conference", but I didn't snoop on the website long enough to find out if there's another one scheduled yet.

It’s a reasonably regular thing, but as regular as a user group.

I don't think Arach has scheduled the next one yet, but we won’t want to wait too long.

10 years with Python here. Back then people thought I was silly and should have been learning Perl instead. Although somehow I have less use for Python now that I'm in the supercomputing field. :-)

Also, boo!

That is funny.

You know, in my heart of hearts, I still love Perl more. *sigh*

You could see a therapist about that. Right now I really want to get some time to work on parallel Haskell or some other ml derivative.
