What's fair game?

At last Saturday's meeting, Jeff Rush pointed out that there is also a blog for use by all Python user group to post notes about what happened at each meeting:

Jeff recommended we reserve this DFW Pythoneers blog for Python-related technical discussions, and postings about what took place at the user group meetings should be placed on the common python-groups blog.

Personally, I don't think we need maintain a hard rule about this; probably the common python-groups blog should be for announcement-style summaries of what happened at a meeting, and our local DFW Python blog could be used for more informal discussion, such as to continue a conversation which started at a DFW Python meeting.

This blog is intended to provide a soapbox for the DFW Python user group members, many of whom don't have an existing personal blog. Of course, those members who do already have a blog are welcome to contribute here as well.

For those unfamiliar with the DFW Pythoneers, we're a Python programming user group based in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Membership is free, and we meet three times per month for discussion, problem solving, presentations, coding sprints, meals. For more info, check out as well as Currently we have two sites and two mailing lists, and there has been some talk about consolidating the two to avoid confusion, but at the moment to stay in the loop it's best to join both mailing lists.

If you're interesting in joining this blog to add new contributions, please contact me (Brad Allen) through the DFW Python mailing list (because this is my first post, I am not sure if my email address is accessible from this site.
