I'd like to introduce this months talk at the Science Gallery. If we have time after the talk, we will have some lightning talks. If anybody has any short topics they want to present, let me know, or just show up on the day.
We will be having a pub meetup afterwards in O'Neills on Pearse st (across the road from Science Gallery).
As we only have the venue until 8pm, I'd like to ask that people show up early.
Title: Python and Async I/O
Speaker: Mark McLoughlin
Length: 30 minutes
Abstract: For many programs, it's important to have some strategy for doing I/O in an async manner. This talk will attempt to provide a quick overview of the basic principles of the topic, some examples of existing support in Python frameworks and an introduction to recent work by Guido to bring async I/O support into Python core.
