Dave will be here from 10th May to 15th May (he’s leaving on the 15th
late at night).
I’ve spoken to the people where I currently am (TANDBERG) and they’re
okay with a meeting in the evenings. The space is pretty decent and
can house around 10 – 12 people. So the venue will work. Additionally,
it’s right next door to where he stays so it’s convenient for him as

for details on where.

He’s asked about possible topics to talk about. One is of course, the
GIL (particularly various approaches on fixing it that are floating
around). Another is Abstract base classes. Then there’s the Python
“advanced” features like decorators, generators etc.
