EuroPython 2010

UPDATE: Slides and the text of the talk are available for download. Feel free to use for your own presentations under CC3.0.

I’m going to give a talk on gevent at EuroPython on Thursday 22nd July at 11.00am in Birmingham, United Kingdom.

The contents of the talk is not well defined yet but I’d like to cover the following:

  • Coroutine-based approach to network programming and how it solves Python’s concurrency problems.
  • Greenlets: what they do and how they do it. Why they are better than the alternatives – generators, threads.
  • How gevent and eventlet use greenlet to do what they do, the basic principles they operate on.
  • How sockets/events/queues implemented.
  • Real-world applications using gevent; future development plans.

If you have any suggestions regarding the contents of the talk, please post a comment or email me.
