PyPy Demo Evening in London, August 27, 2013

As promised in the London sprint announcement we are organising a PyPy demo evening during the London sprint on Tuesday, August 27 2013, 18:30-19:30 (BST). The description of the event is below. If you want to come, please register on the Eventbrite page.


PyPy is a fast Python VM. Maybe you've never used PyPy and want to find out what use it might be for you? Or you and your organisation have been using it and you want to find out more about how it works under the hood? If so, this demo session is for you!

Members of the PyPy team will give a series of lightning talks on PyPy: its benefits; how it works; research currently being undertaken to make it faster; and unusual uses it can be put to. Speakers will be available afterwards for informal discussions. This is the first time an event like this has been held in the UK, and is a unique opportunity to speak to core people. Speakers confirmed thus far include: Armin Rigo, Maciej FijaĊ‚kowski, Carl Friedrich Bolz, Lukas Diekmann, Laurence Tratt, Edd Barrett.

The venue for this talk is the Software Development Team, King's College London. The main entrance is on the Strand, from where the room for the event will be clearly signposted. Travel directions can be found at http://www.kcl.ac.uk/campuslife/campuses/directions/strand.aspx

If you have any questions about the event, please contact Laurence Tratt
