OSDC Proposal Submitted

Filed under: database,python — admin @ 9:36 am

Prompted by Mark and in an effort to keep up with Alan I’ve submitted a proposal for a presentation at OSDC 2006.

If they like my proposal I’ll be appearing in a lecture theatre in Melbourne in December talking about databases and Python. I’m being quite ambitious in scope for a thirty minute slot with discussion of the Python Database API, a side trip into JDBC and Perl’s DBI and then a discussion of database wrapper utilities, ORM implementations and patterns. I suspect that there will be some judicious editing before I’m finished, although I will try and keep all the topics in my conference paper.

July Sydney Python Meeting

Filed under: python — admin @ 2:06 pm

Its been a while since the last one, but I’m glad to say that the first Sydney Python meeting of 2006 is nearly here. The date is the 27th of July, 2006 and the time is 6:30pm. The venue is new, we’ll be getting together at the school of IT building at Sydney University, but the content and discussion should be as good as ever.

For details, and to let us know if you are coming see the meeting notice on upcoming.org. Discussion takes place on the Sydney Python mailing list.

Congratulations to Mark for organising and I’ll see you all there.
