To the delight of both groups, Pumping Station: One hosted the monthly meeting of the Chicago Python User Group, on Thursday, October 8th. Christopher Allan Webber gave a talk about the upcoming release of Blender, version 2.5, and all of its exciting Python hooks. Afterward we broke up Open Space-style, and discussed many Pythonic topics. About twenty people came.
It was our first time hosting an event for an external group, so
things were a little rough around the edges, but it mostly went pretty
well. There was lots of mutual curiosity between the two groups. Video
is forthcoming, and will be linked from here.
