This summer I spent three days in Burgundy at the Afpy Computer Camps. This yearly meeting gathered French speaking python developers for talking and coding. The main points of this 2011 edition were:

The new IPython 0.11 was shown by Olivier Grisel. This new version contains lots of impressive feature like inline figures, asynchronous execution, exportable sessions, and a web-browser based client. IPython was also presented by its main author Fernando Perez during his keynote talk at EuroSciPy. Since then Logilab got involved with IPython. We contributed to the Debian packaging of iPython dependencies and we joined the discussion about Restructured Text formatting for note book.

Tarek Ziade bootstrapped his new Red Barrel project and small framework to build modern webservices with multiple back-end including the new protocol.

Alexis Métaireau and Feth Arezki discovered their common interest into account tracking application. The discussion's result is a first release of I hate money a few months later.

For my part, I spent most of my time working with Boris Feld on the Python Testing Infrastructure , a continuous integration tool to test python distributions available at PyPI.

This yearly Afpy Computer Camps is an event intended for python developers but the Afpy also organize events for non python developer. The next one is tonight in Paris at La cantine : Vous reprendrez bien un peu de python ?. See you tonight ?
