That'd be very handy for me.

I've been to the Python dojo a few times and really enjoy the "sit down and code on a problem" format.

One of the things the Python guys do is to limit the number of people who can go to a single event. I suspect this is because there's only so much room in the office they use, but it also makes the evening feel a little more personal. It's just a bummer if you want to go and don't manage to book a place on eventwax fast enough...

Oh, and, the company who provides the office sponsors the evening with beer and take away pizza, so everybody stands around getting to know each other at the beginning.
