The meetup was scheduled at 10:30 am in RedHat, pune. I reached sharp at 10 am. Met new people and had a great interaction with them as this time the crowd was new and enthusiastic.

The 1st was a lightning talk by Poruri Sai Rahul on "Creating your Personal Github pages", it was a hand's-on and very useful. Github can be used to make static pages and the great thing is we don't even need to code from scratch, we can just fork the repo's on github and using Bootstrap we can make static pages, no need to write all those HTML pages from scratch containing "tags/head/body/.bla bla" just fork any basic HTML repo and make changes whatever you want.

After the Break there was a talk by Krishnakant Mane on Emacs for development, such an informative talk it was followed by jokes :). He explained most of the things of Emacs, and being a newbie i got to know new things. As previously i was aware of the Programming environments (Pycharm) but Emacs is like killer of all, he explained the stuff in a very interactive way and it was great listening to him. He is very experienced and knowledgeable person.

The Emacs was followed by Creating RESTfull API using python Pyramids, this was hand's on workshop about the Pyramid Framework. I was totally unaware of this thing but it is very powerful and efficient Web Framework. This workshop was conducted by Krishnakant Mane again and Prajakta. They covered most of the parts of Pyramids and it was 2 hours long but very informative.

Overall in May python Meetup got to learn lots of new Python Libraries and Frameworks, will be implementing those in future :).
