Chicago Python User Group
Go ChiPy! After last month's hugely successful language comparison
mayhem, the world's most successful user group strikes again!
Robots and OS Packaging, are the major topic areas.
James Snyder, from Northwestern University's Biomedical Engineering
Department, will be serializing Arduino microcontroller with Python
for robotic pursuits. Jason Huggins, co-founder of Sauce Labs Inc and
creator of Selenium, will follow up with a quick demo of his Arduino-
based Ambient Orb clone, called 'orbison' (http://code.google.com/p/orbison/
For the second part, Cosmin Stejerean, software engineering and
computer security specialist, will cover how to package your Python
package with tools like py2app and py2exe. Massimo Di Pierro,
professor at DePaul CTI, will get some brief help porting his popular
web2py Enterprise Web Framework to a linux package from a live
audience. Let's see if it is possible in 10 minutes!
Last but not least, William Scullin, Argonne National Laboratory and
cheese lover, will present on bcfg2, a tool written in Python for
system administrators to fingerprint their environment and about
Python, in general, on IBM's BlueGene /P supercompter.
There will be a moment of silence in respect to Unix Timestamp
