Djangonauts, Pythonistas

Evening all

Just wondering: are there (m)any other Django developers around the Birmingham/Midlands area?

Am looking to kick off some kind of group, as there don’t appear to be that many of us around these parts.

Django specific, or python web dev in general? I tend to use Flask + SQL Alchemy rather than Django and know there are others around who are the same.

Last thing I built in Python was actually a Flask thing rather than Django, but Pycon UK was here a few years ago; I’m sure there are more of us around :smile:

At both of the codebar events that I’ve attended, there were people interested in learning python - but alas no one with the knowledge to teach them.

I’m a Pythambino. (who isn’t sure why a post has to be 20 characters long)

PyConUK is still around these parts - please join us in Coventry, Friday 18th - Monday 21st September. There’s also Python West Midlands, though I’ve missed the recent meetings.

I count myself a Python programmer, and I’m currently working on integrating U2F with Django Two Factor. authentication

I’m very happy to meet other Python programmers, of course - thought I am semi surprised at how few Django devs there appear to be in the region. Strange - or perhaps not. I’ve been in the Django bubble for a while - certainly before I escaped London.

@moreati In theory, I’d love to come to PyCon, thank you - but currently two small daughters make conferences a fading memory at the mo. I think EuroPython in Brum was the last Python conf I made it to, and DjangoCon/DjangoIsland. Hopefully before long I’ll have more flexibility!

They’re never too young to start.
