Hack Night

This is the second CTPUG hack night. It's an opportunity for all those in Cape Town to gather and work on things together. If you're a newcomer looking to learn Python, there'll be experienced Pythonistas on hand to answer questions and give guidance -- we have some (really) simple exercises to get you started. If you're an old hand, come along and show people what you're working on. Gather ideas -- and maybe helpers -- and share your thoughts and experiences with others.
