Filed under: Uncategorized — JeffH @ 5:57 pm

Location – Gordmans Office Building in Aksarben thanks to Aaron Keck.

Meeting starts at 6pm, Wednesday, 1/21/15

Parking and entry details:

The building is the northwest corner of 67th and Frances and the Gordmans entrance is next to the “g” sign, about midway along the East side of the building. There’s parking directly out front, but it sometimes fills up in the evenings. The garage around back is open to the public after 5:30 or 6 as well.

The building doors lock at 5, so Aaron will be standing by to badge people in starting around 5:45. If you’re running late, or early, just shoot him or the list an email.

July 16 Meeting Notes

Filed under: MeetingNotes — Steve @ 12:49 pm
GIL

GIL

We had a good discussion, mainly focused on Global Interpreter Lock.  A description can be found here, and article one and two by Jeff Knupp.

Eventlet was also introduced –

a concurrent networking library for Python that allows you to change how you run your code, not how you write it.

  • It uses epoll or kqueue or libevent for highly scalable non-blocking I/O.

  • Coroutines ensure that the developer uses a blocking style of programming that is similar to threading, but provide the benefits of non-blocking I/O.

  • The event dispatch is implicit, which means you can easily use Eventlet from the Python interpreter, or as a small part of a larger application.

Finally we had some discussion about adding a bit of structure to the meetings and advanced notice of the meeting agendas.  If you would like to share at a meeting, or know about a presenter traveling through Omaha please email the list and we will set it up.
