Django 1.0 release party

Come help us celebrate the release of Django 1.0!

Next week is going to be huge. We’ll be releasing Django 1.0 early in the week, and then the first DjangoCon kicks next Friday.

To celebrate the release of Django 1.0, we’ll be holding a dinner party at the Tied House in Mountain View on Saturday, September 6th at 7pm. The date and time are designed to tie in with DjangoCon, but anyone is invited — especially those who can’t attend DjangoCon.

We’ve reserved the whole restaurant for Django friends and fans. Dinner starts at 7pm, and the festivities should continue until about 10:30 or so. The party’s free, though the dinner and drinks aren’t. Tied House has good food and great beer; come hungry!

To make the night extra fun, we’ll be holding “lightning talks” at the party — five minute presentations on various Django-related topics. We’ll be asking speakers at the conference to present vastly twimmed-down versions of their conference talks, and we’ll be opening the floor up to anyone to present their own cool shit.

Tied House is located in downtown Mountain View (map). For DjangoCon attendees, that’s about 15 minutes away from the conference venue; we’ll caravan over (and provide transportation for folks without cars) right after the day’s talks end.

If you’ll be coming, please RSVP so that we can get an accurate headcount.

We’re also looking for sponsors for the party, so if you’re interested please contact us.

We hope to see you all there!
