Tonight (January 17) we're having our monthly meeting for the Front 
Range Pythoneers. This should be a great kickoff for the new year.

Here are the meeting specifics:

    * /Time/: Tonight, 6-8 PM
    * /Location/: Churchill Navigation
      <http://www.churchillnavigation.com>, in their spiffy new office
      at 100 Arapahoe Ave, Suite 10, all the way at the end, in Boulder,
      Colorado. Google Maps link
      There is abundant parking. It's warming up, you could also try
      kayaking in.
    * /Sundry Needs/: Food & drink will be available.

We have some great demos scheduled for tonight:

    * Tom Churchill and Vinny Fiano will demo Churchill Navigation's
      <http://www.churchillnavigation.com> earth-rendering engine (which
      looks like Google Earth, only apparently even better and faster ;)
      ). Vinny (their main Python guy) will explain how they built the
      glue logic (and why they decided against SWIG) and perhaps some of
      the implications of using Python as a scripting language in a
      real-time (60 fps) environment, and the techniques we employed to
      keep the graphics pipeline from stalling when making an expensive
      call into their engine from Python.
    * Brian Granger from Tech-X <http://txcorp.com/> will help us think
      more deeply about concurrent Python programming, especially as
      seen in a new version of IPython
      <http://ipython.scipy.org/moin/IPython1> he has been working on.

In addition to the demos, you can expect our usual lively discussion of 
Python features, tips & techniques, and directions. We will also talk 
about the upcoming BoulderSprint 
<http://wiki.python.org/moin/BoulderSprint> on Jython to be held on 
Saturday, February 3.

Hope to see you there!

- Jim
