Filed at 6:14 pm under by Ruscetta


The feature presentation at the ALE Central Meeting
at 7:30pm on Thursday, May 21st, will be:

“The Wonderful Widgets of Wx, Python Style”
as presented by the often distracted
but always erudite Charles Shapiro

Synopsis:
— Follow our intrepid coder into the dark thickets of cross-platform
GUI programming as we explore the exciting world of wxPython,
a Python interface to the excellent WxWidgets C library. This talk
will feature a close look at some toy programs and a demonstration
of an actual, complete WxPython application.

bio:
— Charles Shapiro is a fan of fencing, juggling, gadgetry, RC toys
and most anything the lesser world considers “geek” or “gear head”.
Consistent to this calling he has been a professional programmer for
over 10 years, specializing in C and unix with a couple years of C++,
Perl and a plethora of Python in the mix. He can type faster than
most people can talk, is a Linux Lunacy Cruise alumnae, a liberty
minded friend of the EFF and a seriously committed GNU Linux zealot
since 1996.
