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.
