everyone,</p>

weeks ago, my colleague Matt and I sent a few emails around to this and a few
other lists, gathering interest in a Python User Group in Adelade. As a result,
it's now happening!</span></p>

<p style="margin:0in;font-family:calibri;font-size:11pt" lang="en-US"> </p>

<p style="margin:0in;font-family:calibri;font-size:11pt" lang="en-US"><span style="font-weight:bold">When and Where:</span> 
The 4<span style="vertical-align:super">th</span> Wednesday of every
month, <span style="font-weight:bold">starting the 26th of April, opening at
6.30pm with talks starting at 7pm</span>. We'll be meeting <span style="font-weight:bold">in the CBD, at the Victoria Square campus of Flinders

speak on Django Channels</span>, and <span style="font-weight:bold">Romana
Challans on NLTK</span>. If people are interested we could organise some
pizzas, and afterwards there's the opportunity to move to a nearby bar for some
social drinks if desired. We've heard a fair bit of interest in both
participating in and organising other activities as well, which we hope to do
once we're up and running.</p>

Adelaide as accessible to everyone as we can! The building is
wheelchair-accessible and close to public transport. We don't yet have a
solution for childcare but it's something we want to address in the future. If
lack of access to childcare is preventing you from attending, or you can think
of other ways we can make Python Adelaide more accessible, we'd love to hear
from you: chat to us in #planning on Discord or shoot us an email.</p>
