New Kubernetes Meetup
There's a new Kubernetes meetup forming. From their Meetup page:
Meet other developers and users of Kubernetes. Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions. Kubernetes can run almost anywhere, including Google Compute Engine, Vagrant, CoreOS, Azure, vSphere, RackSpace, etc. Learn more about Kubernetes at http://kubernetes.io

Just a note to let you know there's a hackathon event for MARTA on October 28th - 29th at The Garage at Tech Square. The full story is at http://hypepotamus.com/events/
The MARTA Hackathon series is a yearlong strategic technology initiative led by MARTA, Sandbox ATL, Code for Atlanta, HackGT, and other community groups to help create the next great thing in Atlanta transit. This is the first of three 24-hour hackathons, semi-monthly work group sessions, and continual online interactions to create new ideas to increase ridership and improve the rider experience.
Atlanta Maker Faire 2016
Maker Faire Atlanta 2016 will be taking place over the weekend of October 1 and 2. On Saturday, October 1, the Faire will be open from 10am to 5pm. On Sunday October 2 we will be open from 12pm to 5pm.
Maker Faire Atlanta 2016 will be taking place in Downtown Decatur this year! We are finalizing our footprint, so check back for more information.
We would love for you to choose MARTA if at all possible. We have limited parking, so everyone that takes public transportation frees up a space for someone who can’t!
Take the eastbound MARTA train to the Decatur MARTA station.
Take the Swanton Way exit out of the station and do a U-turn.
Walk east towards the gazebo and then south on N McDonough Street (heading towards Decatur High School) until you run into the Faire!

From their Meetup page:
PyData-Atlanta is interested in telling insightful stories about data and exploring the methods behind those stories. We advocate for open data ecosystems and workflows that center on open source tools, especially (but not exclusively) based in Python. We are focused on the vertical integration of tools and skills that transform raw data into insights, and we aim to provide a seminar-like learning environment. We host short interactive presentations, audience-contributed lightning talks, panel discussions, and informal networking opportunities. Our events can benefit both experienced and beginner data scientists alike.
Announced in the September 2016 meeting, this meetup is already the 6th largest PyData meetup in the world. Way to go!
New Way to Help Sponsor Your Group
A friend of mine runs LiveSoftwareEvents.com, a way to live-stream video and make money from it. The organizer doesn't pay, just the remote viewers. They pay a reasonable $1 per hour which gets split with the organizer. If you or your group would like to give it a try, contact Bernie LiveSoftwareEvents and give it a try.
