Thu Feb 9 19:12:12 CET 2006
Please join us February 15, 7:30-9:00 PM, for the eighth meeting of
the Fredericksburg, VA Zope and Python User Group ("ZPUG"). Topics
are ZODB Blob support, Zope 3 C2 certification, and a Twisted book
This meeting is moved from the usual date (second Wednesday) to
accommodate the visit of Christian Theune, an active member of the
Zope community who will be visiting from Europe.
More detail on topics:
* Christian Theune is leading an effort to get Zope 3 Common
Criteria certified. The Common Criteria is an international security
evaluation program for software, based on US, Canadian, and European
standards (more information at the bottom of this email). Christian
will talk about this process and ask for feedback and ideas about the
C2 certification of Zope 3.
* Christian is also working with one of our ZPUG attendees,
Chris McDonough, to add blob support to the Zope Object Database
(ZODB), which essentially makes working with large blobs in the ZODB
more efficient. He will talk about progress and approach for this
* Benji York will review the O'Reilly book about the Twisted
network programming framework, with Zac Bir and Gary Poster chiming
* We will serve delicious food and soft drinks.
Next meeting, March 8, will have Brian Lloyd talk about IronPython (a
Microsoft-sponsored implementation of Python on .Net); and Gary
Poster talk about zasync 2, an in-development tool based on Twisted
and Zope 3; and possibly other topics. The following meeting, April
12, will have Zac Bir talk about a Twisted-based application on Mac
OS X; and other topics.
We've had a nice group for all the meetings. Please come and bring
