NOVA-DUG April 15th summary
This was originally posted on blogger here.
Forour first meeting there was seven people and several cancellations. Not bad for short notice and rain. Attendees (first name only for now - I will update if attendees contact me and request their names/jobs):
There was talk of Django projects still under development, with one public effort exposed by Sal:
- https://www.concentrateme.com Django powered search analytics tool.
We explained Pinax to Sal. In return South was mentioned by Sal as a functional Django migration tool (thanks to everyone who pointed me at the right place). Corey talked about the limitations of the Django ORM compared to SQL Alchemy. I think we agreed to disagree about templates. Everyone griped about the quality of the Panera coffee shop's wireless network.
Upcoming planned events:
- EuroDjangoCon US-DC area sprint (May 7-8)
- Django Dash get-together (May 30-31)
We chatted about a bi-weekly schedule. We may have to do some juggling to avoid falling on the same weeks as ZPUG-DC or Django District.
Future format ideas include user presentations, voting on the open source django presentation of the week, and planned attacks on user problems.
