[triangle-zpug] Last night's meeting
cbc at unc.edu

Very successful meeting last night. We had 15 in attendance including
many first timers. Bill Tolbert won the "drove the farthest" award for
coming from SC, although I'm sure Mark Biggers still holds the "most
miles racked up" award. I heard about many Plone projects I had no idea
were taking place.
Mike Revoir's ArchGenXml presentation was god-like. I've seen AGX
presented at least five times before. This was by far the best. For one,
I had no idea AGX had come so far along since the last Castle Sprint. If
you haven't done AGX in awhile, you should check it out again. For two,
Mike gave some pretty compelling reasons why you use AGX (helps migrate
your content types between Plone versions; your business *is* your
model), which is something I haven't heard anyone do before. For three,
Mike showed some pretty great proficiency with AGX. His presentation is
Mike, would you mind making a copy of that content in your home folder
Geoff's presentation on psyco proved just how much information you can
impart in ten minutes. Really great model for presenting. Plus, psyco is
cool. Speedup factor of 9x for intensive number crunching. 32-bit x86 only.
Geoff, is your presentation/example code available for posting?
Everyone should give a presentation like Geoff's about the little
details you discover working with Python.
There was a bull shooting session afterwards at Woody's on Franklin Street.
Next meeting at Duke in late January. I think Ben is going to get some
help from Robert Petrusz on Duke hosting and here may be a change of
meeting location on Duke campus to somewhere more accessible. But I'll
leave that to them, including posting meeting notices, etc.. :)
