The Triangle Zope/Python User Group (TriZPUG) will hold its next meeting 
on Wednesday, September 29, at 7:00 p.m. in Raleigh, NC.  We will be meeting 
in the DELTA conference room(s) at Venture III, who has kindly permitted 
us to use their meeting room, on NCSU's Centennial Campus.  Directions to 
Venture III are below.  This month, Tom Bryan will be talking about Boa 
Constructor and wxPython.  

Note that we're back at NCSU this month and that we'll try starting at 7:00 
instead of 6:30.  

Hope to see you there!

Title: wxPython and Boa Constructor 
This presentation will be an introduction to the wxPython module, which 
gives you access to the cross platform (Windows, Mac, *nix) wxWidgets 
library of components for writing GUIs.  We'll discuss a bit about how 
a wxPython application looks (both the GUI and the source code).  The 
talk will include practical issues such as licenses, packaging, and where 
to get the software to set up the development environment.  

Once we're all comfortable with wxPython itself, we'll move on to 
Boa Constructor, a Python IDE and visual GUI builder that uses wxPython.  
We might even coordinate a live demo of Boa Constructor during the talk.  

Time permitting (both for me to prepare it now and for me to present it 
during the talk), we may also discuss the following topics: comparison of 
wxPython with other Python GUI toolkits (pyGTK, pyQt, Tkinter), a Zope 
product for debugging with Boa Constructor, and other packages/options 
related to wxPython (such as GUI builders other than Boa Constructor).
