Omaha Python Users Group, April 2, Notes

We met at Rosken's Hall, Room 402 on UNO's campus courtesy of Burch. Thanks Burch!

  • BeautifulSoup by Eli Criffield
  • Tkinter and PMW by Chad Homan

Eli gave a great presentation on the basics of BeautifulSoup and used his sipie project and ipython to help demonstrate the power brew which is BeautifulSoup.

Chad gave a presentation about the advantages of Tkinter on platforms with limited resources. He also demonstrated Python MegaWidgets - PMW. PMW builds on Tkinter to provide things like tabs and notebook metaphors to UIs who use Tkinter.
