Richard Jones' Log: Reminder: Next MelbournePUG meeting: Tuesday 11th August
That's TOMORROW NIGHT!
The next meeting of the Melbourne Python Users Group will be on Tuesday the 11th of August starting at 6:30pm. We'll have use of their projector and time for several short presentations or lightning talks.
Meeting details, location and talks list are at: the MelbournePUG wiki page.
- 15 minute talks
- Martin Schweitzer "Primetime Wordfinding"... It's a rather novel algorithm that I (re)discovered(?)* for finding word matches when given a group of letters (eg. think of the puzzle in the age where you have a grid with 9 letters and have to find words). I then noticed that it had applications to other fields such as bioinformatics (which I won't go into in the talk [unless, of course, there is a particular interest]). It also has a very nice representation in Python - which I will mention.
- Richard Jones ... a new cool thing I'm working on
- 5 minute lightning talks
- Chris Miles "Intro to PSI (Python System Information)"
If you've seen something cool or are doing something cool then we'd like you to tell everyone about it! Presentations could be 5 minutes or up to 15 minutes if you'd like to ramble for a bit longer. I'll be getting up to talk a bit about my experiences playing with IronPython - what's cool and what's downright odd :)
If you've got an idea for a talk just add it to the wiki page.
