In this dojo we’re not going to do the usual practical work. Instead
we’ve organised 5 speakers to give talks of varying lengths. We’re
calling this “Wormcon” – it’s just like Pycon but smaller.
Here’s details of the talks (in no particular order):
* John Chandler – how I used Python and the DOT graphing DSL to
visualise a nasty legacy PHP codebase.
* Michael Foord – Recent work on mock/unittest. Michael can’t make
Europython so this talk will be based upon the material he would
have presented in Florence.
* Dr Tim Couper – a lightning talk on Strengthsfinder.
* Robert Rees – a description of a real world project that uses a
Python wrapper sitting on top of Neo4J.
* Guy Burton – the Airplay SDK, and a description of early stage
work on creating a Python wrapper (so people can get Python
projects running on mobile devices).
The speakers understand that this is a dojo – so people will want to
code along, ask questions, point out problems and generally interact
with the speaker during their presentations. Think of it more in the
style of a seminar rather than lecture.
Pizza and beer start at 6:30pm and talks will start at 7-7:30ish. We aim
to finish 10ish.
Free pizza and beer will be provided. (Thanks Fry-IT)
