West Yorkshire Python User Group

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.

We discuss our meetings on the Python Yorkshire and Humberside Google Group and you can also follow us on Twitter at @WYPython.

Talisker - One Year On

Thursday May 11, 2017

Talisker is a Python web service runtime environment. It aims to provide powerful and standardised ways to run Python WSGI applications. This includes providing logging, metrics, error reporting, request tracing, tooling, versioning, security, debugging and configuration, in both development and in production.

Talisker was first introduced at WYPy in April last year, and has come a long way since then. This talk will introduce Talisker, covering both the high level goals and some of the deeper Python specifics.

Date and Time

Thursday 11th May, starting at 7.45pm.

We will finish at about 8:45pm, and will be going to Whitelock's Ale House afterwards.

Location

We will be meeting at Futurelabs. Please use the back door on Lady Lane for access.

From the Futurelabs web site: "If you’re walking, we’re 50 yards from the back entrance of the Victoria Quarter. Simply look left, walk to the crossroads and we’re in the building on the opposite corner (above the Gas Showrooms). Take the door to the left of the Gas Showrooms and our Reception is on the second floor."

Coming up

Nothing scheduled yet. Please check back soon.
