Very brief Python meetup report
Well, I was late to the meetup (as those who know me well might expect...). It was an interesting time. Might have just been me, but it seemed like people are still in the getting-to-know-you phase, which is fine with me, since this was my first time. What I did find interesting is that the topics of conversation were just about exclusively focused on web development (at least while I was there). I wonder whether that's a Python phenomenon or if all meetups for all "web-enabled" languages have the same characteristics. Not that I'm not interested in web development; I am. It's just not what I use Python for at my day job (building compilers). Of course, my suspicion is that there just aren't that many people building compilers in Python. At least not yet....
