Django Sprint

We're hosting a Django development sprint at Carrboro Creative Coworking on March 20th and 21st, 2010. A sprint is a concerted, focused period of time in which developers meet in the same space to get things done on a project. This will be a general sprint focused on fixing bugs for the 1.2 release. It doesn't require any previous experience and, if you don't have prior experience contributing to Django, it is the perfect opportunity to start. We'll be there at 9am both days to open the doors. The sprint is being hosted by Caktus Consulting Group. If you need help finding the location or have other questions on the day of the sprint, just give us a call at 919-951-0052.

Python Hack Night The First

Let's get together not just to talk about Python but to use Python. Python Hack Night is where you can get hands-on learning and help on your small projects. If you have a project on which you need some help, then you should come. If you have time to spare and want to help, then you should come. If you just want to come work on a project with other Python hackers, then you should come. If you want to see what projects others are working on, then you should come. Suggestions for more venues to host Python Hack Nights are welcome. Read the article for more information.

TriZPUG Feburary 2010 Meeting: PyCon Debrief: Your Presentation Goes Here

Join us for a special meeting at MetaMetrics. 35 TriZPUGers went to PyCon this week. Let's have a show and tell about what we learned at PyCon. If you would like to present at this meeting, please sound off on the mailing list. As always, lightning talks of ten minutes or less are also welcome. Anything you've learned about Python, no matter how trivial, can be a lightning talk. Simply volunteer your lightning talk at the meeting. The after-meeting will be at one of the several nearby taverns, to be decided at the meeting. View the article for directions to MetaMetrics.

Django Development Sprint

A development sprint is an excuse to get together, write some code, and have a good time doing it. The purpose of this sprint will be to help finish features and push out bug fixes in preparation for the Django 1.2 release. If you're interested in coming to work on other open source Django-based projects, that's welcome too. If you plan to participate on-site, please RSVP via Eventbrite (linked on the page linked below) so we get an idea of how much food to plan for.

TriZPUG October 2009 Meeting: Jython - Python for the JVM

Frank Wierzbicki will present a talk on Jython that is a preview for his PyCon talk. Jython is an implementation of Python for the JVM. This talk covers the options available for integrating Jython and Java code, especially Java calling into Jython, since this is the trickier case. This talk will also cover some Java specific deployment options, such as deploying your Jython application as a jar file. Jar files allow you to package Java/Jython applications into a single archive. In many environments a user can click a jar file to launch the contained application.

The No-Fun ZopeSkel BBQ Sprint

A highly focused, planned, and organized, very small, no-fun, no-cost, all-business sprint to improve ZopeSkel usability for Plone themers, integrators, and new developers. The primary goal is to improve ZopeSkel infrastructure rather than to create new ZopeSkel templates. This may result in a ZopeSkel wrapper product code-named Button. This sprint is not invite-only, however, we are not looking for a large group or side-projects. We, in fact, are specifically discouraging side-projects of any kind--the purpose of this sprint is solely to accomplish a pre-determined task list assembled by the sprint organizers. This would not be a good sprint for someone looking to learn more about Plone site-building or product-development per se, since the technologies we're working with here are not much more general-Python than Plone-specific. This sprint is really for experienced Python programmers who want to help with the ZopeSkel infrastructure.

TriZPUG September 2009 Meeting: Cheetah Templates

Chris Calloway will present Cheetah, a Python package for code generation via templates. This talk is a warm-up for the No-Fun ZopeSkel BBQ Sprint hosted by TriZPUG the following week (for which you will need Cheetah skills). Other talks at the meeting are welcome. Bring your own talk. Parking is in the Bryan Center metered lot or garage (not free; see link below). Call the number below if arriving after 7pm to get in the door. The after-meeting will be at The Federal at 914 W. Main St. in Durham.

TriZPUG August 2009 Meeting

Canonical developer Gary Poster will give his OSCON presentation "Launchpad Foundations: If the Abstractions Don't Kill Us..." The talk is about how Launchpad uses the zope.interface and zope.component libraries. The talk is based on interviews with Launchpad engineers. The talk discusses how we might improve our use of the Zope Component Architecture, how the technology might be change, and how the technology might be used in other contexts like Django. We will adjourn for food and beverage at a local eatery after the meeting.
