Regular Toronto-area Python User's Group meeting next Tuesday

We will be holding our regular PyGTA meeting next Tuesday, the 16th of October. Topic proposed is: Continuations, Tasklets, Co-routines and Micro-threading. Be the first on your block to be able to say "I broke my brain with Python!" This is the ever-so-neat deep-dark computer-science-y stuff that loves to expand their minds around while drinking copious quantities of caffeine. As usual, we'll gather at the lovely Linux Caffe at the corner of Grace and Harbord in downtown Toronto, just one block South of Christie station. We'll aim to start the meeting at 7:00pm. More details at: http://www.pygta.org/ Have fun all, Mike -- ________________________________________________ Mike C.

Regular Toronto Python User's Group (PyGTA) meeting next Tuesday

We will be having our regular monthly PyGTA meeting on the 20th of March, 2007. Our planned topic is an introduction to the One Laptop Per Child project, and particularly the Python-coded Sugar development environment. We'll probably also have some discussion on news and events in the Python world, such as the University of Toronto choosing Python as its first-year teaching language. As usual we will be meeting in the cool and funky Linux Caffe. It's located at the corner of Grace and Harbord streets in downtown Toronto. We start gathering around 6:30pm and get started with the more formal discussions around 7:00pm. We normally wrap up the formal session between 8:30 and 9:00 and head out for beer, ice-cream and the like. http://web.engcorp.com/pygta/wiki/NextMeeting Have fun all, Mike -- ________________________________________________ Mike C.

February Toronto Python User's Group meeting is tomorrow, 7PM atLinux Caffe

I'll be doing a short presentation on my recent work on the StarPy Asterisk Protocols for Twisted. These protocols allow Python programmers to write Asterisk FastAGI and AMI customisation and management scripts in the same process as code running any other Twisted clients/servers. After that we'll have time for open discussion. Meeting is at the regular time and place, Linux Caffe, 7pm. Details here: http://web.engcorp.com/pygta/wiki/NextMeeting Hope to see you all there, Mike -- ________________________________________________ Mike C.

NYLUG meeting: The Python Object Model with Alex Martelli & Google(open bar and food!)

The New York Linux User's Group invites you to a special presentation by Alex Martelli of Google, on the Python Object Model. This presentation will be held at P.J. Clarke's Sidecar, rather than our usual location, and Google is picking up the tab for an hour and a half of open bar and food. Additionally, if you're looking for a job as a Python developer, bring your resume. Please RSVP at http://rsvp.nylug.org to attend, as seating is limited. - Ron (announcement follows) The New York Linux User's Group Presents Alex Martelli - on - The Python Object Model Held at P.J. Clarke's Sidecar 915 Third Avenue @ 55th Street - NY Python is a multi-paradigm programming language, but, out of the paradigms it supports, there is no doubt that OOP (Object Oriented Programming) is the paradigm that forms Python's core. If you have done any substantial programming with Python, you have, most likely, used some of its OOP features. But -- have you ever stopped to really think about those OOP features, the mechanisms that Python uses (and exposes!) to implement them, and how best to make use of the possibilities this state of things offers This subject is generally known as the "Object Model" of a language. This talk stops a bit short of examining every level of Python's Object Model -- in particular, it does not get into metatypes (metaclasses) and similar levels of "Black Magic". Rather, the talk sticks to the most practically interesting aspects of Python's Object Model as seen from the point of view of a programmer using Python -- understanding exactly what's going on in all kind of everyday OOP-usage situation, what alternatives and trade-offs these mechanisms imply (for example, when should you use closures, and when should you use functors instead when to inherit, and when to delegate instead), and how Design Patterns play into the mix (Python subsumes and build-ins some classic DPs, and makes a few others irrelevant due to its highly dynamic typing, but other classic DPs yet remain extremely relevant and important for optimal day to day use of OOP in Python). About Alex Martelli ------------------- Alex Martelli is Uber Technical Lead at Google, in Production Software. He wrote Python in a Nutshell and co-edited the Python Cookbook, and is a member of the Python Software Foundation. Before joining Google, Martelli spent 8 years with IBM, 12 with think3 inc, and 3 as a Python freelance consultant, mostly for AB Strakt (Sweden). P. J. Clarke's Sidecar ---------------------- 915 Third Avenue @ 55th Street - NY Sidecar is PJ Clarkes handsome semiprivate upstairs dining room. You enter Sidecar through a distinct yet discreet door on East 55th Street. Subway: Take the E, V or 6 Subways to 51st Street, cut over to Third Avenue and walk north 4 blocks. Take the 4, 5 or 6 Trains to 59th Street, cut over to Third and walk 4 blocks south. Bus: Take the 101, 102 or 103 Buses to 55th. If you're coming downtown on Lexington, cut across to Third. If you're coming up on Third, it's right across the street. http://pjclarkes.com/htm/sidecar.htm About NYLUG ----------- NYLUG is the New York Linux Users Group, which has met every month without fail for the last six years. Meetings are free and open to the public, but require advance RSVP due to fire code and security requirements at our usual meeting space at the IBM Building. Our announcements mailing list at http://nylug.org/mailman/listinfo/nylug-announce provides a low-volume but steady stream of Linux, Free and Open Source, and related community and other user group announcements for the tri-state area. Our technical discussion list is a moderate-volume list featuring a diverse group that from home users to enterprise security experts. http://nylug.org/mailman/listinfo/nylug-talk http://www.nylug.org/

PyGTA (Toronto Python users group) next meeting: Tuesday April 27th

As noted in the updated wiki page http://www.engcorp.com/pygta/wiki/NextMeeting, the next meeting of PyGTA (the Toronto-area Python users group) will be held at this time and place, courtesy of our friends at Givex. Site: Givex offices (www.givex.com) Room: Suite 400 Address: 366 Adelaide St. West, just east of Spadina Date: Tuesday April 27 Time: 7-9 PM (A Yahoo!Maps link is on the wiki page.) This month we will be witness to a demonstration of the all-Python collaborative workflow management platform from AB Strakt of Sweden. Jacob Halln, CTO and chairman, and Laura Creighton, company co-founder (and former Torontonian), will be showing how their product can allow partners to configure working systems for customers with only days of effort. The system is suitable for a wide range of markets where managing workflow and documents is critical, including accounting, law firms, medical practices, procurement, and so on. One or more of Mike Fletcher, Chris Garland and I (Peter) will also be around to tell you about PyCon 2004, which was a grand success with over 350 people attending! Hoping to see you there, -Peter Hansen and Ian Garmaise, meeting organizers P.S. If you are quite sure you'll be attending, please email me at peter@engcorp.com in advance so we can ensure there's adequate seating. I don't know how the March meeting went, but February's was pretty packed.... P.P.S.: Also posted to comp.lang.python.announce since we haven't been using that channel to announce lately, preferring our mailing list. I guess doing this every six months or is a good idea...

[ANN} Daily pyogp coders meeting (PYthon Open Grid Protocols forvirtual worlds)

pyogp is a Python-based virtual worlds test harness and client library being developed by Linden Lab, makers of Second Life, and members of the SL Architecture Working Group, in order to test the Open Grid Protocols that were used in the recent "proof of concept" demo by IBM and Linden Lab, that allowed avatars to teleport from one virtual world (Second Life) to another (Open Simulator) using standardized interoperability protocols. http://www.informationweek.com/news/...leID=208803274 A daily meeting within Second LIfe has been setup for pyogp coders and designers to meet, as described in the announcement below. This is the transcript of the first meeting: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Pyog...ng/14_jul_2008 The pyogp meetings are open to any "resident" of Second Life, and anyone with a dee to contribute to the process (especially coding) is certainly welcome. In World Meetings We're going to start having daily meetings at "infinity is full of stars" in the Levenhall simulator in Second Life at 9:30AM SLT (Pacific Coast Time) each day. These meetings are for the PyOGP coders to meet and discuss design, process and status. In the near term, these are likely to be "somewhat beefy" meetings where design issues are discussed and differences hammered out. In the longer term, these will hopefully be more "Agile Stand-Up" style meetings where we discuss: a. what we've done in the last 24 hours, b. what we're going to do in the next 24 and c. what we're blocked on. what PyOGP Coders Meeting who PyOGP l33t C0d3rZ where "infinity is full of stars" @ http://slurl.com/secondlife/Levenhall/91/208/22 when 9:30AM SLT / 12:30PM Eastern Time / 5:30PM GMT / 6:30PM Central European Time why for PyOGP contributors to hash out architecture, design, test and deploy issues IRC: irc://irc.freenode.com/#pyogp Mailing list: https://lists.secondlife.com/cgi-bin...listinfo/pyogp wiki: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Pyogp
