The first meeting of the Portland, Oregon area Python interest group (PORPIGgies?) will be held Tuesday September 7, 1999 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm in the Benjamin Franklin Building, downtown Portland.
The inaugural speaker will be Amos Latteier of Digital Creations speaking on "Zope and XML". He'll discuss the Zope application server and it's web object system from the perspective of XML. * DOM interface to standard Zope objects. * Using XSL as an object query language. * The XML Document Zope product, and how it exposes XML data to Zope. * Cataloging XML data. * Where XML and Zope are going. The discussion will cover some basics about Zope's object system, but will focus on its integration with XML. Even if you don't know Zope, if you have some idea of what XML is, you should be OK.
The initial goals of the group are to meet the first Tuesday of each month, and have a fairly technically oriented meeting. The meeting format will consist of one or two technical presentations each followed by Q&A. Socialization will be encouraged after the presentations at a local pub. Admission is free.
