The Sydney Python meetup group is on this Thursday. The meeting time has
been brought forward half an hour, and the formal part of the evening
will commence promptly at 6:30pm.
The James Squires Brewhouse managed to book the Python Meetup Group and
the Perl Mongers in adjoining rooms for the same night. Everybody has
promised to be nice and we'll be combining with them to hear from one of
their Melbourne gurus.
As always, everybody is welcome.
Graham Dumpleton, author of Vampire, will be speaking first (6:30-7:30).
He describes his presentation thusly:
"Although I'll talk a bit about the motivations behind writing Vampire
and why this extra layer on top of mod_python is useful, what I want to
talk about more is what I have learnt from writing Vampire. From that I
would like to go on to describe a new and better way of doing this same
thing for mod_python that Vampire attempted to do. This new approach
moves even further away from the monolithic framework approach towards
small building blocks of functionality that can be slotted together to
build up a web application how you want it and not how some framework
dictates you should do it."

Paul Fenwick of the Melbourne Perl Mongers will also be speaking
(7:30-8:30). His talk, "So you want to start a business", will be
presented at the SAGE-AU conference later this year, and an abstract can
be found online at
