Two Seans for the Price of One - 1 File Framework & GIS for Humans

We are going to mix it up a little this month and have 2 presenters.

A Python web framework in 1 file (hint: bottle) - Sean Reifschneider

For some applications you just don't need a lot of moving parts.  For extremely simple apps, there can be benefits to using an extremely simple web framework.  It's hard to get simpler than bottle: it is a single 3K line file.  But it provides quite a lot: templating, routing, helpers for file uploads, and a web server.  Best of all, it's easy to test applications.

In this presentation, Sean will introduce you to Bottle, demonstrate some features and show some examples of using Bottle to implement web management interfaces using SQLAlchemy, unit tests, and form processing.

Python GIS for Humans - Sean Gillies

Sean will take us through reading and writing spatial data, working with GeoJSON, and 2D computational geometry.

The Location has Changed!

Unfortunately our contact at In-Situ is on leave to have a baby, so our meetings for the rest of the year will need a new home.

This month's meetup will be held at the Old Town Library at 201 Peterson Street.  We will meet in Community Room 2.

Time Change!

Due to availability of the library meeting room, we are meeting from 6:00-7:30.

    FYI I created a thread in the discussion board about future topics for the meetup.

    Thanks to Sean and Sean for their presentations last night -- I enjoyed both of them. See Sean Reifschneider's link below for his bottle code. He would enjoy feedback on the usefulness of his skeleton as a starter scaffold for others wanting to create a bottle app.

    Here is the URL to my github project that the presentation was based on:

    I will not be able to attend. I was looking forward to the geojson talk.

    Unfortunately, I have a schedule conflict with the Ft. Collins internet pros. This sounds like it is going to be a great talk.

    I'll be at Django Con so unable to attend.
