[14:30:07] <aclark> hazmat: did you come to the DC pycons when you lived in cali?
[14:31:25] <hazmat> aclark, i did.. the international python conference by foretec seminars...
[14:31:54] <hazmat> aclark, i remember the one that got snowed in pretty distinctly .. i think that was arlington
[14:32:22] <aclark> hazmat: cool re: 13 y/o and JS
[14:32:40] <rzoz> neat -- i didn't know there was a port of processing to js
[14:33:01] <aclark> J1m: any interest in giving your pycon talk to DC Python in July? http://meetup.dcpython.org/events/23833131/ I know you prepped it at NOVA Python recently… but in case you feel like doing it again :-)
[14:33:18] <hazmat> yeah.. its quite nice... i've been able to use most of the processing books minus the parts that split out to java class implementations
[14:36:37] <hazmat> J1m, btw.. i forget to mention on the gevent list.. but if you want to use gevent + zookeeper, ie. async + greenthread.. using a pipe to write from the callback thread and wake up the invoker greenlet works quite well
[14:37:09] <aclark> This is really cool I think: https://pycon.disqus.com/
[14:37:16] <hazmat> i think i mentioned it on irc though
[14:37:23] <aclark> Would like to talk to them about how to add more features to pythonpackages.com/discuss
[14:37:47] <J1m> hazmat, yeah, I ended up using the api suggested on the list, which does that for me.
[14:38:08] <J1m> so it ended up being straightforward once I know the right api.
[14:39:58] <hazmat> J1m, interesting, i'll have to check that out
[14:40:10] <hazmat> that's my one issue with gevent, feels very undocumented
[14:40:56] <J1m> Really, I thought the docs were pretty good. There are certainly gaps, but better than most projects.
[14:41:24] <J1m> The older docs mostly apply to 1 and Dennis is pretty responsive. <shrug>
[14:44:19] <hazmat> i feel like most of the api isn't documented outside of the src, esp newer functionality in 1.0, just the very basics. the user api tries to mimic the thread api, so that's some value, but there's quite a bit more under the hood.
[14:44:38] <hazmat> the async watcher send that was pointed out in that thread is a pretty good example of that
