Just a quick note to let everyone know about some upcoming Python courses in Chicago.  More details are available at http://www.dabeaz.com/chicago/index.html.

May 16-20, 2011.  Practical Python Programming
Python core developer Raymond Hettinger is coming to Chicago to put his spin on my most introductory Python course as well as bringing an interesting assortment of his own material.  Raymond is well known for his Pycon presentations, is a board member of the PSF, and has contributed a variety of modern features to Python including sets, itertools, collections, generator expressions, and more.   In Chipy parlance, this course is going to be the best one yet.

May 20, 2011.  Learn Hard Python the Harder Way
An intense 3 hour seminar with David Beazley on a variety of "hard" Python topics including the design of the object system, inheritance, super(), descriptors, functions, closures, decorators, context-managers, and metaclasses.   Raymond Hettinger will also be on-hand to administer first-aid if necessary.

June 1-3, 2011. Python Concurrency and Distributed Systems Workshop
This is the workshop that spawned the infamous GIL presentations given at past Chipy meetings.   If you liked the GIL talk, then you would probably like the other 20 hours of material that you haven't seen.  Topics include threads, messaging, multiprocessing, event-driven I/O, coroutines, and more.
