pyCologne Python User Group, Cologne, Germany, Dec 12, Notes

The Python User Group in Cologne usually meets at the computer centre of the University of Cologne. The meetings are attended by about 15 people. German speakers might want to refer to our wiki page:

Reimar Bauer talked about the Google Highly Open Participation Contest™ for students which involves tasks for the Python-Project, Plone and MoinMoin. After 100 new tasks have been added recently, the Python project now features more than 250 tasks.

Talk proposals and requests for future pyCologne meetings:
  • Talk about MoinMoin (proposed by Thomas Richter
    and to be held by Reimar Bauer)
  • Talk about the Publisher/Subscriber-Pattern (Observer-Pattern) (proposed and to be held by Christopher Arndt)
  • A general introduction into design-patterns (advantages and disadvantages, different types, example: Singleton-Pattern) by Stefan Pielicke
  • A talk about the Composite-Pattern and its use-cases e.g. parsing/matching by Ralf Schönian
  • Selected advanced topics from an introductory course into Python (Iterators, Generators, Lambda, Sets, function-parameters with *, **) by Rebecca Breu
This post is closely based on the minutes of the meeting taken by Rebecca Breu. The original German text can be found here.
