1. Massimo DiPierro, Lead developer of Web2Py and Author of "The Official Web2Py Book" is in town from Chicago and has agreed to visit SFpython and tell us more about his framework and answer any questions you may have. When he is not working on Web2Py, he teaches CS at DePaul University and does research on High Performance and Scientific Computing, Computer Security, and Numerical Algorithms for Scientific and Financial applications.
2. David Crammer recently spoke at PyCon and Euro PyCon and wow the community by revealing the wisdom gained from working at Disqus - world's largest Django site handling 500 million users and 25,000 requests a second at peak and growing exponentially. In this talk, he is going to tell us about tools that help debugging and developing your Django application faster and easier. Non-Django users will find this talk interesting too as David will also cover things that can be used in any Python application, including:
- Building a more efficient developer environment
- Interactive debugging
- Error logging
- Profiling your code
Due to the 2 scheduled talks, we will not have lightning talks at this meeting. As usual, I'd be happy to answer any questions
Check it out!
