Well last night’s inaugural Django and Rails meetup went very well indeed (photos to follow) – apart from the slow start due to most people not knowing each other, and being unsure if the raised eyebrow from someone else in the bar was as a result of them seeing if they were there for the meetup or as a result of wandering into the wrong sort of bar. Photos soon. It was good to meet Simon and Natalie (who came down from Gloster for the event and had to go back by bus), Matt, Tom (who had to get back to paddington for 10) and everyone else. The unfortunate side of the turnout being so good was that I didn’t have enough time to speak to anyone – and with that in mind felt we should make it a monthly thing.

Unless there are any complaints, the venue and time will be the same, Smiths of Smithfield at 7pm. To avoid clashing with other events (well, my monthly pub crawl which happens on the first Tuesday of every month to be exact) I’m suggesting the second Monday of the month – which this time around is the 10th of October. Simon Brunning is going to arrange the London Python meetup for the same time so there’ll be some fresh blood 🙂 As before, leave your comment if you fancy coming along…

    Mondays? I’d love to come, but I’m in Hampshire, and I’d have work in the morning. Maybe i’ll get a Tuesday off for one of them

    So… what happened? I don’t care about photos of podgy geeks. What did everyone discuss? What were the conclusions?

    Well, as the numpty in the group, I certainly had a good time, not just talking about Rails and Django – in particular, the chat on self-replicating programs sticks out in my mind. I’ll definitely be along to the next one, though, as I’m hoping to stick with Rails for a while longer. I might have something more useful to contribute to the group, then, too. Still, educational and entertaining – and it brought out a great crowd of people.
