“computering” – a different presentation style

Keynote is nice, but it’s not well suited for technical presentations. Live coding on the other hand is hard and often fails horribly because of some minor typos etc. Some month ago I visited the “Python Usergroup Montreal”:http://montrealpython.org/ and I saw an awesome live coding session from “Rory Geoghegan”:https://github.com/rgeoghegan. He was typing incredibly fast and […]

We meet on a regular basis, every second wednesday each month. Some times we meet in a bar to grab some beers, some times we have full fledged community events with sponsors and high quality talks.
