Who  : Kent Johnson, 5-year Python veteran and active contributor 
What : Why should I care about Python?  What can it do for me?
Where: Martha's Exchange
Day  : Thur 17 Jan **Next Week**
Time : 6:00 PM for grub, 7:30 PM for discussion (usually upstairs)

:: Overview

     Why learn another language?  As you will hear from Kent,
Python is an investment that can pay off well and quickly for you.

     Kent Johnson explains the philosophy behind Python and points out
its advantages over more familiar languages like C/C++.  You will get a
top-down view of the convenience tools/features built in as well as
some code snippets to demonstrate the ease of programming.

     If you have been considering Python (or just want to be better
informed) this is a great opportunity to get an overview and have your
questions answered. A preview of the talk is available here:

     Kent has been learning and using Python for over five years and 
evangelizing it for almost as long. He is moderator of - and prolific 
contributor to - the python-tutor mailing list, and lead developer for 
http://blogcosm.com which is built with Python and Django.
