The Chicago Python User Group, ChiPy, will have its next meeting
on Thursday, December 9th, starting at 7pm. For more information on
ChiPy see http://chipy.org
This month's topic is testing and profiling strategies in Python. Chris
McAvoy will talk about doctest. Brian Ray will talk about the hotspot
profiler. Ian Bicking will be talking about py.test, a unittest
alternative. Maybe John Roth will be able to talk about Fitnesse, a
Wiki-based acceptance test system.
There will also be time to chat, and many opportunities to ask
questions. We encourage people at all levels to attend.
We also want to hold a post-meeting chat to talk about Python advocacy
in the Chicago area, and ChiPy promotion.
This month we will be meeting at Imaginary Landscape:
5121 N. Ravenswood Ave, Chicago
It's close to the Ravenswood stop on the North Shore Metra line, and a
modest hike from the CTA brown line (Damen stop) and red line (Argyle
stop). Parking is available out front. See the website for a map.
Buzz to come up.
We're looking to do a meeting in the suburbs in February. If you have a
venue we could use (in the suburbs or elsewhere, February or another
month), please email the mailing list. We want to move the meeting
around to make it possible for the people from the entire Chicagoland
area to participate.
Each month we try to pick a general topic, and people who can do
presentations around that topic. The tentative topic for January is
Jython. Presentations can be short, and need not be authoritative; have
you done something in Jython you'd like to share? Tell us a little
about it on the mailing list.
This will be ChiPy's 7th meeting, give or take a few. We meet once a
month, on the second Thursday of the month. If you can't come
this month, please join our mailing list:
