Tech Talks!

Hi Pythonistas,

This month TLPG passed 300 members and so we'll be shunning the pub and hosting a series of tech talks like a proper grown-up user group.

Based on a poll conducted last month the most requested talks were on the subject of asynchronous programming, so we've lined up a great selection of speakers to talk about just that.

1st up will be Peter Inglesby who'll be giving us an introduction to asynchronous programming, including a walk-through of building something interesting from scratch. 

2nd will be Colin Howe who'll be talking about his experiences with eventlet at Conversocial.

Last but not least will be Gareth Lloyd who'll be drawing parallels with Colin's talk (they work together) but from a Twisted point of view.

The generous folks at Skimlinks ( will be providing the pizza and beer in exchange for a recruitment plug.

I was surprised at the enthusiastic response from our speakers (I thought I'd have to strong-arm people) so a big thanks in advance to Peter, Colin and Gareth for putting themselves forward.

I'm really excited about this event and I hope you can show your support for the Python community and everyone who's volunteered to help out.  All you have to do is RSVP, show up, grab a slice and enjoy.
