We’ll be running the First "Nairobi Python User Group" meetup onMonday the 14th of March at the iHub. We will start at 18:00 forcoffee and talks.

Hopefully this will become a monthly event.

During this meetup there will be a presentation of "Bungeni - an OpenSource parliamentary and legislative information system" which hasbeen developed on Python (See http://www.bungeni.org ,http://bungeni-portal.googlecode.com ), and incidentally the coredevelopment team lives in Nairobi.

Bungeni aims to increase the efficiency of parliamentary activitiesand make Parliaments more open and accessible to citizens. After thepresentation there will be a question /answer session.

Any volunteers for future talks and lightning presentations ? I sawpretty interesting things from the last email thread on how peoplewere using Python. Remember -- anyone is welcome to make apresentation. For lightning presentations you don't need to be anexpert -- even a plea for help or advice makes a good lightningpresentation. Experts are also welcome ! Other possibilities : A pet project, a new library you’ve come across recently, a learning experience you’ve had, anything.

If you have any Python-interested friends or colleagues, try to bring them along too.
