ThursdayMar 23 2017Portland Python & PyLadies PDX Present Monthly Presentation Night
Come join us for Pythonic Talks
All levels are welcome! Talk levels vary from beginner to advanced.
This month is a Pycon Sneak Peek:
- Asynchronous Python for the Complete Beginner by Miguel Grinberg
With the introduction of the asyncio package in Python 3.4, you can hear lots of people talking about asynchronous programming, most in a favorable way, some not so much. In this talk, I will tell you what this async fever is about and what can it do for you that regular Python can't, not only with asyncio, but also with other frameworks that existed long before it.

WednesdayFeb 8 2017Write The Docs PDX - Networking with a side of Write The Docs proposals
NOTE: We'll be in New Relic's newest meeting room, on the 27th floor
The Write The Docs NA conference returns to Portland in May, and the deadline for proposals is February 10 (midnight PST).
For the third year, we'll give people who want to propose a chance to test things out, either by speaking briefly, or by brainstorming their proposals.
FYI, O'Reilly has an excellent guide to creating conference proposals, "Propose, Prepare, Present". If you navigate to http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920027096.do, you can get the eBook version for free.
We'll start with a brief networking session from 6-6:30.
At 6:30, I'll make a few announcements. Anyone who wants to try out a "preview" of a conference talk (5-10 min), or just present their draft proposal for comments, can speak to the group (or ask questions) after that.
