Special guest for next SoCal Piggies meeting

We'll have the SoCal Piggies meeting this Thursday May 1st at the Gorilla Nation office in Culver City. Our special guest will be Ben Bangert, the creator of Pylons, who will give us an introduction to his framework. We'll also have a presentation from Pablo Noego from Gorilla Nation on a chat application he wrote using Google App Engine. We'll probably also have an informal discussion on Python mock testing tools and techniques.

BTW, I am putting together a Google code project for mock testing techniques in Python, in preparation for a presentation I would like to give to the group at some point. I called the project moctep, in honor of that ancient Egyptian deity, the protector of testers (or mockers, or maybe both). It doesn't have much so far, but there's some sample code you can browse through in the svn repository if you're curious. I'll be adding more meat to it soon.

Anyway, if you're a Pythonista who happens to be in the L.A. area on Thursday, please consider attending our meeting. It will be lots of fun, guaranteed.
