Re: [PhillyOnRails] Feb Meeting

The bit I think that makes it interesting is that until a couple of weeks ago I hadn't touched Python or Django. I'm trying to take decent notes while my experience is fresh. I'm thinking of tagging each of my notes with one of 2 categories: WTF? or 'Oh that's nice'.

Hearing from someone who uses both would be of great value. perhaps we all should watch the snakes and rubies pissing contest as homework?

We've talked enough about having a downtown meeting, it's time to do it. I am in the process of arranging meeting space at Drexel, the date has not yet been set but I'm thinking about the 19th or the 26th of February.  I'll put out a call for RSVPs when the date gets closer. 

2/19 is the 3rd Monday

Having them both on the same day seems bad to me.  Especially if they're both downtown.

I've been working a bit with Django (, the Python counterpart to ROR.  I'm thinking of doing a presentation entitled 'Django As A Second Language'. It would be a comparison of Rails and Django from a practical and philosophical perspective. Would this be of interest to anyone? Any objections to going off the Ruby reservation? 

I like the idea.  I've always been curious to hear some of the real dirt on Django.  I tried it once, but couldn't get past the somewhat PHP-like need to edit global variables for configuration.
