    I have uploaded the presentation and the code samples to the indypy's presentations repo on github.

    I believe Dan(?) asked me for an example of using Python programs as "filters". I have created an example "filterr.py".

      That was me. We talked about sys.stdin, but fileinput is new to me. Thanks for the follow up!

    Responding to Fayang Pan's question .... Unicode is a big can of worms in general. We at IndyPy have never addressed this topic. This is an excellent choice of topic for a future meetup.

    • Fayang P.

      thank you so much! I am still struggling with the worms... see you tomorrow!

    Thanks to Pradeep for being willing to take on some tough items!

    I'm also going to try to bring and get my ChromeCast setup at the SpeakEasy, in case anybody needs to try sharing a tab on the monitor, there.

  • Pradeep G.

    I'm taking requests for a quick talk.. ;) To keep it interesting it could be anything not related to "web".

      Other ideas: survey of the landscape and arguments about GIL, threading, mutexing, etc.

    • Fayang P.

      i have troubles with parsing unicodes from json to csv, and dealing with unicode in general (downloading,reading,wri­ting) would you like to talk about how python treats unicode?

  • Pradeep G.

    I like "Using python for command line applications, mucking with parameters, and working with the OS."

    What would you like to hear more in this topic?

      Anyone ever try Clint? https://github.com/ken...­

    • Todd G.

      Few things I've been curious about. Clint (as Rob pointed out) is one of them. I've also noticed several different paradigms for taking and parsing arguments (is argparse best?). All of my CLI tools have been targeted at a specific OS type, so am curious to see more about how Python does its various abstractions for OS commands to make them OS-independent, or how much a developer must write in logic on their own. Any best practices are good fodder.

  • Todd G.

    Hey folks, we're looking for a volunteer to share this Tuesday. Would you be willing to do a quick talk, demo, or Q&A? Introductory topics are welcome!

    I always get something good out of these meetings.

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.
