On the 29th of November 2011, I represented the python perspective at the Google Technology User Group debate, the Battle of the Backends, which pitted Python against Ruby-on-Rails and Node.js for web development.
The debate was held at Google’s European HQ at Barrow St, Dublin.
The video from the debate is available on GTUGs youtube channel: the python segment begins after 20 minutes.
I’m delighted to report that PyCon Ireland 2010, the first ever python language conference in Ireland, was a great success! Over 100 people came, attended two dozen talks and tutorials in three tracks, and participated in sprints and open-spaces.
