Pycon talk thoughts
This was originally posted on blogger here.
Back at the start of this month I posted my thoughts about sessions I was considering giving at Pycon 2010. They ones I've killed are:
- How to suffer through SOAP web services using Python even though REST is so much better (I might be too bitter for this one).
The general response to this one has been that SOAP is icky. I think SOAP is icky. Why should I present on a topic I loathe and I'm mildly bitter about? So I'm not going to do this presentation.
- Why I like stupid template languages (expanding on a tangent of this article).
I think this might make for a good NOVA-DUG talk or a blog rant but I don't think it would work for a pycon talk. So we'll consider it nixed.
I think this design pattern makes for a good NOVA-DUG talk or a blog post. Not enough for a pycon talk.The one I submitted to Pycon:
- A reprise of the Pinax tutorial at DjangoCon
I've already submitted this to Pycon. It went well enough at DjangoCon and we've already made changes to things so its just plain better.The one I'm considering:
- Why and how to make accessible508 compliant AJAXified python applications.
One more thing: at Pycon I want to learn! I'm not sure I want to be involved in giving too many talks since those will eat precious listening time.
I think what I will do for now cook this up as a Django + JQuery + 508 presentation for NOVA-DUG and see where it takes me.

I'm all for the Python 508 compliance talk. Not that I'll ever get to use in the government, but maybe I could use it "for" the government.

I like the 508 and Pinax talk ideas. The "moving widgets to templates" idea sounds like a good article for PyMag, so shoot me an outline if you want.
