London Python/Django/Ruby/Rails/Java Christmas party
Not content with a Python/Django/Ruby/Rails meetup, Sam, Jez and I have teamed up to throw a Python/Django/Ruby/Rails/Java Christmas party this year. (For "party", read "bunch of nerdy blokes, many with beards, standing around drinking beer and chatting about computers".) It's at The Old Bank of England, Fleet Street on the evening of December the 12th.
Do leave a comment if you fancy coming - we have a room booked, and but we can change it to a bigger one if we need to. I anticipate a lot of interest, what with combining the Java crowd with the dynamic language people, and possible extra interest due to last week's London Web Frameworks Night.
Anyone want to demo TurboGears? ;-)
Update: Thanks to Dave and Dave, it's now a Python/Django/TurboGears/Ruby/Rails/Java/Perl/Catalyst/Maypole Christmas party. That has to be every web nerd in London, right?
Son of Update - This Time it's Personal: See London 2.0rc1.

Sounds good - I'd intended to come to the last one, but couldn't make it.
I couldn't make the last one, but will definitely make this one and assist with the beer drinking, urr, intellectual discussion.
I'll hope to come and am a TurboGears fan, but not sufficiently know-it all to demo.
Please, consider yourself invited, along with any and all other Perl mongers who fancy it. ;-)
(I didn't invite you 'cos I don't know any of you, and I wouldn't know what channel to use to pass the invite along. The Ruby/Rails people are on board 'cos Sam knows them.)
Sounds good. Seeyaz there.
Sounds good. I'll be there as well.
I don't have enough experience with Turbogears so I can't demo it but I'm happy to demo CherryPy (which lies at the heart of Turbogears and Subway) if there's any interest.
There is from me, Remi...
I'll come along and wave the Twisted/Nevow flag!
Rats, can't make this one - sounds like it will be a blast, but I'll be the other side of the Atlantic :(
Hi - I can't make Mondays, I have 3 hours of A-Level maths on Monday nights. :)
I am guessing there has been some discussion previously on which night to use, so at risk of goin over old territory any chance of picking another night?
Aren't you missing nevow from the list? ;)
Why not set up the date on upcoming.org or something similar, and get a mroe accurate count of who's coming? I probably will.
I intend to come. I'll see you all there.
hi - I am interested in coming although I have no beard. But do I simply turn up or is there an official "Please invite me list"?
You left a comment - that's as official as it gets. ;-)
I'll definitely be there this time - looking forward to it.
I'll be there to - I'm interested to meet the London people.
I finished going to conferences and have lots of time off now so I'll also be there considering I haven't been able to make since the first meet. Anybody going from the Hampshire area ?
Nothing planned for the new year party :-) ? I wish I could attend. Next year maybe. It will, for sure, be an interesting meeting.
Simon, you have an interesting blog that is now in my bookmarks. But, it looks like there are some problems with your email since the one I sent you bounced back.
What address did you try to email me at, alpha?
I used the one on your CV.
Ah, that one's *ancient*. I suppose that I should update it. Though I'm not looking for a job...
Any road up, email me at 'simon' at this domain. That works fine.
Up for coming to this. Heck, may even have a Turbogears app to demo by then!
