Hi All,
the last day of the conference, all of us are tired because 5 days of conference are very tiring.

By the way,  I followed Alex Martelli about Design Pattern…. I hoped to get something better.

The main talk of the day was “0MQ”. This is a library cross language who wrap sockets, pipes, etc. Very interesting library but a little bit young, for example it didn’t support ssl natively, but it implements queues to make asynchronous communications. It implements too some comunications pattern as: client/server, one to more, farm (emitter, workers, collector) and else.

Dependency Injection was the title of last talk of the day. This talk wasn’t so technical and not so related to python but may be applied to many languages.

In the afternoon I left the conference bacause 5 days are too much :).


Hi All,
sorry for my delay to write the last two posts related EuroPython.

The forth day started with a sadly thing: the talk I wanted to follow was deleted, but I didn’t understand why, so I followed the one who replaced it. The topic was SQLKit, but I found it not very interesting but only another ORM for desktop application: it integrates sqlalchemy and pygtk to develop very fast. If you need that kind of applications, may be a good solution, but it didn’t impress me much.

After that, I followed an interesting talk about printing pdf documents by python. The talk was mainly a report about the author experience, not a really presentation of a product or solution.

Last talk of the day was related Tips and Tricks by Hettinger, and I think I say enough if you know Hettinger.
He talks about a set of collections that exists in collections python library: two hours really full of informations.

Nothing else. 🙂
