Hi All,
The March PyGameSF meet up will be at the STONG conference room on the
first floor of the main San Francisco public library beside civic
center BART. The library closes at 8pm so we will reconvene to frjtz
on hayes street for dinner/drinks afterwords.This month's
presentations are:

* Patrick Stinson: Embedding Python as a Realtime Audio Scripting Engine. 
  Topics will include separation and communication between the application and
  scripting engine, why Python is "safe" for audio work including empirical
  performance metrics, and caveats related to multithreaded processing as
  performance requirements increase. I will share my experiences using the
  standard CPython implementation to research and develop a state-of-the-art 
  scripting engine for the Play professional sampling engine 

  Patrick is not based out of the bay area so this is a unique opportunity to talk 
  to him about his experiences using python in this way with a commercial audio 

* Shandy Brown : Structuring Your Game's Code.                                                                                                                                                                                             
  One approach to designing video games with a focus on rapid development and 
  networked multiplayer capabilities.  Shandy Brown will highlight key ideas in 
  his tutorial (http://ezide.com/games/writing-games.html).  Fundamental topics
  such as event-based design, defining your game model, and separating the model 
  and the view will be covered. 

PyGame SF is an informal group meet up in San Francisco for Software
engineers interested in python, OpenGL, audio, pygame, SDL,
programming and generally anything to do with multimedia development.
The format of our meetings typically involve several people giving
presentations on projects they are developing followed by group
discussion and feedback.

If anyone else would like to give a micro presentation, show demos or
just talk about what they are doing or generally give examples of any
relevant software they are working on please feel free to head along
