About the Topic: 

web2py was inspired by Ruby on Rails and, as Rails, it focuses on rapid development and follows a Model View Controller design. web2py was also inspired by Django and, as Django, it has the ability to generate forms from database tables and it includes an extensive set of validators. web2py is less verbose than Java-based frameworks and its syntax is much cleaner than PHP-based frameworks. This makes applications simpler to develop, and easier to read and maintain.

About the Speaker: 

Dr. Massimo Di Pierro is an Associate Professor of Computer Science in the School of Computing of DePaul University in Chicago and the director of the MS in Computational Finance. Massimo is also the CEO of MetaCryption LLC.  He also conducts research in Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics supported by the US Department of Energy.
