IndyPy Meetup and Python 3

This past Thursday, I gave a talk to the Indianapolis Python Meetup. It was, in a word, a blast. The venue was “The Boardroom” at Scotty’s Brewhouse, which was really nice – a big table, with centrally located connections to a 42″ flat panel monitor on the wall. And Scotty’s also has good burgers and beer, so it has to be the most comfortable place I’ve ever given a talk.

There were 14 of us, and both the Python knowledge and interest level were high. The guys from provide a certain amount of support, particularly co-organizers Calvin Hendryx-Parker and self-designated PEP-8 nazi 😉 Clayton Parker. I talked about Python 3, hitting both the features that I consider improvements to the language and the changes that cause the most pain in porting old code.

The talk was well received, the burgers and beers were great, and I was delighted to find such a vibrant group of Pyhtonistas in Indy. I hope to return.
