Python Atlanta Meetup

Some of us gather for dinner early between 6pm and 6:30pm, but the meeting itself gets started at 7:30pm where we share our recent experiences with Python and programming.

  • file.readlines() - Doug Hellmann
  • pragmatic pytesting – Daniel Rocco
pytest is a mature, full-featured testing system for Python that offers rapid startup and a rich, extensible feature set.  This talk will be a pytest "crash course" aimed at helping you to quickly start testing your real applications and systems.  We'll examine pytest fundamentals, discuss project organization, look at common testing problems and solution approaches, and peek at some additional tools and pytest features.  All participants will take home a working, testable project for no extra charge!
  • Python Zombie - Ryan Petrello
  • PyGame – JR Rickerson

    I talked with people about a web programming problem that I had, and I met people.

    Waaaaaay to long. The topics covered were fantastic -- five stars! I was about 2 hours late getting back home, based on expectations set from previous events -- zero stars!

    This should have been split into two events: the pygame talk should have gone on its own day; the three preceding talks *might* have been good on one event, but the three together were still a bit longer than what I was expecting for a single event.

    If anyone is interested in a free on-line python-based testing course, we are at the end of the second week for: http://www.udacity.com/overview/Course/cs258/
    Come join us. The third of 7 weeks will probably (guess) start tonight or tomorrow.
