This is a video of the Django 1.1 talk I gave last night for the Ottawa Python Authors Group. We were bumped out of our reserved room so I did the talk in the pub. The timing worked out quite well, I just finished answering questions as game 6 was starting in the background.
Thank you to Andrew Ross and FOSSLC for doing the recording and setting everything up.
You will need Flash 10 to hear the audio for this presentation. If you don't like flash, please send a polite note to the ePresence people asking for them to support other formats.
Update: "we got screwed by the company we were dealing with for the software & hosting and the talk is lost" And sorry, I have no back-up either. The text from this talk is still available.
This is the text from the Django 1.1 talk I gave on Friday May 15 at Algonquin College for FOSSLC's Geocamp/Summercamp 2009.
I have tried to format this in a way that is well suited to skimming and easier to access from the web than reading the original slides. If you find this useful, please let me know.
I will be giving an introductory Django talk at The Free and Open Source Software Learning Centre (FOSSLC) Summercamp/Geocamp 2009 Conference. The conference is taking place on May 13, 14, and 15 at Algonquin College, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and early bird pricing is available until April 5.
The Ottawa Python Authors Group is having a meeting tomorrow (Monday) and Michael Soulier will be presenting talks on concurrency in Django, and an Introduction to Git. It has been a while since the last meeting and this promises to be a good one.
This is a recording of the first Kernel Walkthrough given by Bart Trojanowski for the Ottawa Canada Linux Users Group. He starts with a presentation introducing some Linux development background, file layout and data types. The code walkthrough covers some important files and Linux list and bit modification APIs.
The talk was hosted by TheCodeFactory, a new meeting place for high-tech startups right in downtown Ottawa. This is the first time we used the space and I look forward to returning.
It has been an wonderful and eventful summer and I must thank my friends and family for helping me through it. I am, however looking forward to settling back into my routine and getting back into some of the projects that have been languishing. This beautiful weather makes it hard to stare at a computer for hours on end... Maybe I should move to Finland (or at least rent Night on Earth again.)
I know some people will disagree, but I greatly appreciate the work of Ottawa's National Capital Commission. They may be unelected and unaccountable, but thanks to them (and a blocked off and overgrown roadway), I have a ½ hour commute to and from work that is truly idyllic.
