Over 150 computer programming enthusiasts are set to meet at the Kiwi
PyCon 2010 conference on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 November at the
Copthorne Hotel & Resort Bay of Islands in Waitangi.
Python, a programming language used throughout the world, has a massive
following and Python conferences are held around the globe. Kiwi PyCon
is New Zealand's Python community coming together and will cover the use
of Python in the scientific, web, mobile, gaming, and animation fields.
The event has garnered notable support, with Catalyst IT and Microsoft
as major sponsors and many other well known companies and organisations
including the Python Software Foundation, Plone Foundation, Atlassian,
Enthought, Tait Radio Communications, Apress, Packt Publishing,
O'Reilly, ThinkGeek, Amazon Web Services, Wingware, ANZTB, Mozilla and
ActiveState all backing the conference.
Organised by the New Zealand Python User Group Inc.(NZPUG), it promises
to bring together developers, designers and business people who will
listen to industry speakers. US-based Jacob Kaplan-Moss, creator of
"Django", a successful and widely used web application framework along
with Anthony Baxter, long-time release manager of Python from Melbourne
are keynote speakers for the event.
Kiwi PyCon 2010 topics will include:
• “How Python is influencing neuroscience research"
• Microsoft (Australia) showing how they support Python on their "Azure"
• Amazon web service
• Gmail gadgets
• "Going Global : Using Best Effort Translation To Create Multilingual
• Python and Java
• Python in Astronomy
Another guest speaker for the conference is Matt Provost, Systems
Manager at Weta Digital, five-time Academy award winning visual effects
facility located in Wellington. Matt will speak about "Python in the
Datacentre", as he manages all Weta Digital servers, storage and
networking which occupies five positions on the Top 500 Supercomputer
Danny Adair, NZPUG's founding president said “Python is used everywhere,
and for anyone interested in or using the language, our annual
conference is the place to be.” Kiwi PyCon 2010 registrations are now

Practical Task Scheduling Deployment

One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
