TriZPUG April 2011 Meeting: blitzen.management

Josh Johnson will present the blitZEN method, a SCRUM-variant toolbox of project management approaches that makes you love being a developer again. The blitZEN method is not philosophy or methodology so much as it's a way to get stuff done, done well, and with minimal developer stress. In addition, Josh will also present blitzen.management, a Plone product that assists in the collection of requirements and planning process. As usual, bring your own lightning talk about any observation you've made about any Python topic. There's plenty of free parking at CCC and the after-meeting will continue around the corner at Milltown.

TriZPUG March 2011 Meeting: PyCon Recap Lightning Talks

Come share your PyCon experience through lightning talks. Lightning talks are 5 to 10 minutes extemporaneous expositions on a topic of interest to you, something you recently learned, kind of like a show and tell. We'll be meeting at a new location in downtown Durham, Splatspace, a non-profit member-supported workshop and hacker meeting place. Splatspace is located in the basement of the Snow Building at 331 W. Main St. in Durham. Parking (free exit after 7pm) is in the back of the building in the lot off Ramseur St. on the downtown Durham loop (one way, approach Ramseur from W. Main St. or W. Chapel Hill St.. If you arrive after 7pm, please call 919-704-4225(HACK) to be let in the door. After meeting at the Beyu Caffee, directly above SplatSpace.

TriZPUG February 2011 Meeting: Optimizing LAMP with SciPy

Kurt Grandis of Metametrics will give a preview of his upcoming PyCon 2011 talk entitled "Swarming the Web: Evolving the Perfect Config File." Kurt describes the talk thusly, "Deployed web applications are typically run on top of stacks of highly configurable middleware. The number of tunable parameters and their impact are rarely fully explored. Using SciPy and a set of common Python-based web tools this session will present a new method of automatically tuning a typical LAMP stack for optimal performance." As always, spontaneous lightning talks of ten minutes or less on other topics are also welcome. Anything you've learned about Python, no matter how trivial, can be a lightning talk. There's plenty of parking in the decks beside Red Hat. The after-meeting watering hole location will be decided at the meeting.
