Python Concurrency Workshop (March 19-22, 2012)

So, you couldn't get into PyCon? Or, PyCon isn't enough and you need even more Python than that? Or, you simply want to escape all of your coworkers for a fun week of intense coding? Then, you might want to know that my Python Concurrency Workshop is making a return run March 19-22, 2012 in Chicago.

The concurrency workshop is an intense course that focuses on core topics in concurrent programming and distributed systems. You'll learn how to effectively use things like threads, processes, asynchronous I/O, message passing, coroutines and more. Plus, you'll gain a much deeper awareness of important ideas that will help you understand the features and tradeoffs associated with different concurrency approaches, libraries, and programming languages. If you must know, this is also the workshop that spawned much of my work on the Python GIL.

More information can be found at http://www.dabeaz.com/chicago/concurrent.html. Hopefully, I'll see you in Chicago!

Understanding RPython

Lately, I've been trying to wrap my brains around how the PyPy translation toolchain works--in preparation for my PyCon plenary talk. I'd planned to do some blogging about it, but have become suddenly inundated with work. So, in it's place, I present a screencast of the January 12, 2012 Chipy talk I gave about it. If you're like me, and have wondered what PyPy is doing under the covers, you might find it interesting. Enjoy!

I hope to say even more at PyCon. See you in a month!
