The West Yorkshire Python User Group (WYPy) have been meeting monthly since 2007. Our meetings are free, and usually include at least one talk, as well as a trip to the pub.
There are many asynchronous networking libraries for Python, but Twisted has been around the longest by far. Although it suffers from a mixed reputation (some deserved, some not), it has one killer capability that no other async framework has - it's protocol library. Nearly all standard Internet protocols come implemented out-of-the-box on twisted, and when you need it, it's just brilliant.
We will look at a simple in-memory SMTP and IMAP server written to speed up acceptance test runs involving email. This will include implementing Twisted SMTP and IMAP interfaces, as well as Twisted.cred, the AUTHN/Z framework.
This talk will not assume any prior knowledge of Twisted, but will aim to make the case that in this use case, Twisted is hard to beat.
Thursday 10 May, talk from 7:30pm.
If you want to arrive before the talk, the venue will be open from about 6.30. We will be finished by 9, and we will be going to the pub afterwards.
We will be holding the talk in the boardroom at the back of the ground floor of the building. If you arrive late we may not hear the doorbell, so please phone Peter on <removed>.
