Catching up on some more old business: here are the slides from the Python 2 and Python 3 talk I gave at last month's OCLUG meeting.
I am also preparing some Python tutorials for the upcoming 2011 Linux Symposium in Ottawa June 13-15. Hope you can make it.
I'm late with this update (busy catching up on other work that I neglected last month) but I must report that the Ottawa IPv6 Summit went far better than I had hoped: Great turn-out, great venue, great talks and great food.
Pictures are now available from Richard Guy Briggs and we're working on putting the talk videos online with the help of ISI Global Webcasting.
The space at Telfer School of Management was ideal, and the Telfer volunteers got everyone registered helped everything run really smoothly all day.
It was tons of work, but I look forward to doing it again. Maybe I'll even catch more than a couple talks in person next time.
Response to the Ottawa IPv6 Summit has been amazing. Yesterday we completely sold out our venue and had to shut down registrations. We just can't fit any more people in the room with the keynote talk first thing in the morning.
We do still have some room after the keynote though, and if you don't mind skipping the first talk you can now register for one of the overflow spots we have just made available.
Hope to see you on Friday.
Here are some of my favourite videos from this PyCon this year:
The Ottawa Python Authors Group is gathering at the Georgetown pub on Wednesday March 23. The theme of this meeting is Python Data Structures and String Processing. It's a great topic for beginners and experienced python users alike. Hope to see you there.
Registration for the Ottawa IPv6 Summit has just opened. Also if you want to present a talk (in particular something suitable for the business/management stream) there is still some time to submit a proposal.
The summit will be held Friday April 29 in downtown Ottawa at the new Desmarais building in the University of Ottawa campus. There will be some great talks, a good lunch, fast wireless, power at every seat and plenty of interesting people. I'll post again when the schedule is available.
The conference is being organized by a small group of volunteers, including myself. If your company is willing to sponsor the event please contact the Ottawa IPv6 Summit. The money will go directly into making the conference better for everyone attending.
My article on supporting Python 2 and Python 3 from the same code base is now freely available on LWN.net. The article is based on my recent work on Urwid's Python 3 support. I owe thanks to the people that started and contributed the compatibility work on github and bitbucket. I'm looking forward to a release with Python 3 support very soon.
I also gave a talk at last night's OPAG about these changes. Thank you to all those that came out, we should have these meetings more regularly. Maybe back at the pub next time?
