PyNE Nov 2016 - intro to web dev 

location Campus North | 6pm Wed 9 Nov 2016

An intro to web development with Python - Kieran Darcy

Since the Web took off in the 1990's, Python has been at its heart. Google, YouTube, Reddit, Wikipedia and many others have had Python at their core. This month, we'll look at why Python has been a key language of choice for web development.

The talk will cover a brief history of the World Wide Web, its underlying technologies and its standards. We'll be looking at the Web Server Gateway Interface (WSGI) and its impact on web development in Python and beyond. And finally, we'll look at what Python may have in store for web development today.

This talk is aimed at anyone who's interested in Python, the history of the Web and web development in general.

Pizza will be courtesy of our kind sponsors Sharpe Recruitment (@sharperecruit) and Pebble (@mypebble) - get there early to get a slice! And we once again will be hosted by the ace folks at Campus North (@campusnorthuk).
