New Year’s TurboGears Sprint

31st of December 2007 by conor

For the more technical readers of Web2Ireland, there is a TurboGears (TG) sprint happening around the world this January. TG is a Python web framework used to quickly and efficiently build web applications. In Ireland the two main users I know of are Lukulu and LouderVoice.

The idea is to accelerate development of the next version of the framework by having a giant TG2 sprint/party on 12th/13th of January, and do it at various places all around the world on the same weekend. There will be several in the US, at least one in the UK, one in Germany and if there is sufficient interest we could have one in Ireland. One of the lead devs (Alberto Valverde) now lives in Dublin.

Irish users of Django and Pylons would be more than welcome as there is plenty of sharing that can go on between the three frameworks (and TG2 sits on Pylons). Testers and documentation people are very welcome too.

Let us know if you are interested. If there is a sufficient number, I’ll see if someone can host it in Dublin.

Wish I could be there, but I’ve got too many pythonistas in my neck of the world coming to hang out and hack on TurboGears, and I can’t leave them all high and dry.

I hope you all can get together, and if you happen to make it to the pub afterward, raise a pint of Guinness for me. ;)
