The Austin Python Meetup Monthly Meetup

Hi everyone!

For our July meetup, Andy Terrell will talk about PyCUDA and GPU programming with Python.  Then Peter Wang will recap EuroPython 2012 (which was chock-full of great presentations!) and try to convince you all that you should go next year.  We can have an open brainstorming session on how best to convince your employer to agree to pay for a week-long trip to Florence.

Afterwards, we'll hang out at the Tribune and chat all things Python until we run out of beer, at which point we will move on to Buffalo Billiards or a neighboring bar.

Anyone who would like to give a lightning talk, please email me and let me know the title of your talk!  I strongly encourage everyone to take a few moments to think about how you're using Python (or perhaps, why you are *not* using Python?) and see if you can share your experiences or questions in a 5-10 minute small presentation.  We've had good experiences in the past with lightning talks, and they really make the meetings fun.  It's not hard or scary at all - the audience is always friendly - and it's a great way to sharpen your presentation skills!

 

See you all this Wednesday!

 

-Peter

    Andy's talk was terrific (Python as glue code for much lower level processing is interesting; as is the fact that so many of the same issues -- memory hierarchies, code regularity, the ability to make 'dynamic' as 'static' as possible -- come up yet again in yet another guise). Peter's traipse through conferencing in Florence -- talk about truly communicating having one's inputs overloaded....
    All very thought provoking without being at all deadening; pretty damn good in my book!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
