Support your local area Python User Group
I'm just getting home from the Atlanta Area Python Meetup. One of the things I love about these monthly meetups is the variety of conversation which just doesn't typically happen every day at work. How often at work do I get to discuss the merits of functional vs. imperative languages, select-based vs. threaded concurrency, XSLT vs. DOM/SAX based XML handling? Work is primarily about getting a job done. In the process, you do grow more acquainted with your co-workers, discuss various topics, hear what other people are working on which differs from your own work, and learn new things.
