Third Fredericksburg, VA ZPUG Meeting
This meeting has four features of note.
- Brian Lloyd, the author of Python for .Net (http://www.zope.org/Members/Brian/PythonNet/) and the Zope Corporation VP of Engineering, will discuss his .Net platform and give a brief .Net overview.
- Benji York, Zope Corp Senior Software Engineer, will discuss current functional testing practices on Zope 3, including using Selenium on Zope 3, using demo storage for functional testing, and using his own compelling new functional test package. Note that the majority of this discussion has strong applicability to automated testing of all web frameworks and applications.
- We will serve the now-usual geek-chic fruit, cheese, and soft drinks.
- Fred Drake, Zope Corp Senior Software Engineer, Python core developer, Python documentation maintainer and editor, and co-author of the O'Reilly book Python & XML will give two of his books (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0596001282/) to new attendees. Upon pressure, he admitted that he would be willing to autograph them if bribed with fruit, cheese, and soft drinks.
Note that we are eager to have non-Zope-Corporation employees give presentations. :-)
We had three new attendees last meeting, for a total of ten. Please come and bring friends!
