» Django 1.1 Talk Video

This is a video of the Django 1.1 talk I gave last night for the Ottawa Python Authors Group. We were bumped out of our reserved room so I did the talk in the pub. The timing worked out quite well, I just finished answering questions as game 6 was starting in the background.

Thank you to Andrew Ross and FOSSLC for doing the recording and setting everything up.

You will need Flash 10 to hear the audio for this presentation. If you don't like flash, please send a polite note to the ePresence people asking for them to support other formats.

DVB-H, DMB, ISDB-T, AND MEDIAFLO by Borko Furht and Syed A. Ahson
Publisher: CRC Press, Taylor and Francis, 2008

DVB-H is the standard for digital video broadcasting to handheld devices such as cell phones and PDA’s. This book is for systems engineers.

This is an e-book readable on Windows and Mac using Adobe Reader. You download it and have access for 21 days. If you have a good light laptop, this is more convenient than holding a physical book. However, for me, I have to wait my turn to use the living room PC.  The cost is as usual free for Ottawa residents, but non-residents can join for $50 per year which is cheaper than Safari though you can’t compare the selection.

Get it here at OPL.

» Running a User Group Web Site with Django 1.0

This is a recording of the presentation I gave to the Ottawa Canada Linux Users Group (OCLUG) on September 2 about their Django-based web site. I covered the server and virtualhost configuration for OCLUG, and two new features recently added to the site. I also presented some general information about how Django handles requests and discussed some of the code for the new features.

He starts with a presentation introducing some Linux development background, file layout and data types. The code walkthrough covers some important files and Linux list and bit modification APIs.
