[CentralOH] January 2012 COhPy Monthly Meeting

Brian Costlow brian.costlow at gmail.com
Fri Jan 6 02:21:48 CET 2012

The January 2012 COhPy meeting will be Monday, January 30th, at 6:30 PM.

The meeting will be at the New Song Community Church in the Bell-Haun
The address is 937 Eastwind Drive, Westerville, OH 43081.

Our main speaker this month will be Brandon Craig Rhodes. Brandon will be
previewing a talk he is giving at PyCon:

Python, Linkers, and Virtual Memory

Why does “top” show that your Python process uses 110 MB of
virtual memory but has a resident set size of 9 MB? Does it
consume more memory to spawn several interpreters, or to run one
Python and have it fork() further workers? What is an “undefined
symbol,” anyway? Learn about how an operating system manages
memory, loads shared libraries, and what this means for Python
servers and applications.

Because it's geared toward PyCon, the talk will be relatively short. If
anyone would like to present another talk around a half-hour in length,
please contact Brian Costlow or Eric Floehr.

After the main presentation(s) we'll have time for lightning talks, and
we'll discuss locations for future meetings.
