Atlanta Python GUI Showdown and Web Framework Shootout

by Noah Gift

On Nov. 8th, PyAtl, will be having a GUI showdown in which we have a series of 10 minute lightening talks on all of the available GUI toolkits we can muster. I know we are missing three big ones, wxPython, Jython, and IronPython.

If you live, or will be traveling to, the Atlanta, GA area, then please contact me about presenting. O'Reilly has graciously given us a prize to be awarded to the best presentation, a copy of the book, Making Things Talk. As a side benefit, you will also be able to meet some of the people who work on EVE Online, as they just opened up an office in Atlanta, GA.

In related news, the plans for an Atlanta Web Framework Shootout continue. We have gotten positive feedback about corporate sponsorship, so we can proceed with tentative planning to hold the event in Atlanta, around Summer '08. If you are interested in helping to organize the event, please contact me, and I will put you on the organizing list.

You're also missing a speaker for PyQt/PyKDE and it's too far for me to travel!
