PyGrunners!
At previous PyGrunn meetings we have presented our vision of Web11. As indicated at that time we are going to organize a conference around Web11. That will be on friday the 25th at Het Paleis in Groningen. We are currently finalizing the schedule, but I'm very proud to say that this year's keynote speaker for the Web11 conference is Mr. Andreas M. Antonopoulos. In my humble opinion is by far the best thinker in the blockchain/cryptocurrencies space. Not only that, his presentations on the subject are as good as they get. Check for instance his presentation of the Senate of Canada: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUNGFZDO8mM
Or this one on 'Consensus Algorithms, Blockchain Technology and Bitcoin:' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sE7998qfjgk
If the blockchain community needed a spokesman to defend them there would be only one candidate. His keynote and panel participation will certainly be an impressive addition to the already inspiring Web11 agenda. I hope you will join us on the 25th of september in Groningen. Find out more at http://www.web11.org and get your tickets there as well (only 35 euro!).
[Please help me spread the word for example by resharing this post]

Hey everybody,

Friday is PyGrunn day and it's shaping up to become an awesome happening again! Unfortunately one speaker had to cancel his talk at the last moment for personal reasons. This means we're looking for a replacement. We know it's on a short notice, but if you have something Python related that you would like to share with the dutch Python community, this is your chance. Talks are only half and hour and mostly a lot of fun. You'll get a lot in return as well:

- Free entrance (despite the fact that the event is sold out)
- Free t-shirt
- Free speakers dinner 
- Travel expenses covered
- Awesome audience
- An entry in the PyGrunn hall of fame :)

Please contact us a.s.a.p. if you are interested (info at pygrunn.org) in speaking at PyGrunn.

Thanks!

The PyGrunn organizing committee,
Bram Noordzij, Sietse van der Laan, Berco Beute

We are proud to announce the line-up and tickets for the yearly PyGrunn event! Reserve the date, buy a ticket, and spread the word!
Gijs Molenaar. Scientific computing with Django and Docker. BIO information. When I was a kid I wanted to become a bicycle repair man. Now I'm working at the Anton Pannekoek Institute as a scientific software engineer for the AARTFAAC project, which is also fun. Although I'm living in Amsterdam ...

Preparing a talk for the Big PyGrunn in May? Try it out on a PyGrunn Monthly!

Having something to say about a Pythonic subject, but not sure if you can fill an evening? Reach out and we'll mix and match!

Hey guys, I planned to give a talk coming Tuesday (Monthly PyGrunn) but I'm running out of time (I'm going on holiday the day after and still have tons of stuff to do). Anybody else interested in giving a talk? Else I'll postpone it 2 weeks.

We've posted a feedback form on http://www.pygrunn.org/ for the community to give feedback about past PyGrunn's or give tips for next year's edition. This includes keynote speaker ideas, so if you know a Python hero you'd like to see at PyGrunn, just fill out the form. And please spread this message, the more feedback we get the better we can make PyGrunn 2015!
Jeff Knupp. Writing Idiomatic Python: Towards Comprehensible and Maintainable Code. This talk explores the notion of what makes Python code idiomatic (or "Pythonic"). It discusses what idiomatic code is, examples of how to write in an idiomatic style, and the benefits of doing so.

Hey folks! Do you have something interesting to talk about that would be a perfect fit for PyGrunn? A spot for PyGrunn October edition is still open. The meeting should take place on 14/10. As always keep in mind that the talk should be rather technical and related to Python (exceptions can be made of course!). Message me if you are interested!

Hello guys,

I am looking for a software developer who can help me out with a project I’m working on concerning Google Glass. I’m looking for someone who can work with Java and Google SDK. It has nothing to do with Python, but someone pointed out that some developers in this community might also have Java skills.
We want to develop an app that enables us to livestream the video that Glass makes, to a server.  Next we want an audio connection from the one watching that video to the Glass. This is our primary goal. In a later stage we would like to add several other features to this app.
If there’s someone in this community that’s interested in this Google Glass project, please let me know!

It's a commercial project, so there is a budget. If you are interested or know someone who is, please let me know!

We just finalized the schedule for friday's conference! And excellent set of speakers and topics that perfectly reflect what PyGrunn stands for. If you agree, spread the word! Thanks!

By the way, if you could help us spread the PyGrunn gospel that would be awesome. Last year there were a couple of people who found out about PyGrunn only after the event. We don't want that to happen again. :)

Friends, I thought I couldn't go to the PyGrunn Conference, but now it seems I can go but the tickets are sold out. Does any of you have a spare ticket they can sell me?

The RFP for PyGrunn 2015 is out! So if you'd like to be in the impressive hall of fame of past speakers, or know someone who would, this is your chance.

It may be blasphemy asking about C++ guys in a Python-fan-group but my client I currently work for (as a hardware engineer, not a recruiter, don't worry ;)) is looking for C++ guy. Holler if you're interested or know someone who could be interested!
