    The next meeting of BayPIGgies will be Thurs March 11 at 7:30pm. This
    meeting will have two sessions:

    A Practical Perspective on Python Performance
    Jimmy Retzlaff <>

    Jimmy will discuss a number of lessons learned regarding performance in
    a relatively large client-server Python application. Concepts including
    when, what, and how to optimize will be discussed. Technologies including
    extension modules, Pyrex
    (http://www.cosc.canterbury.ac.nz/~greg/python/Pyrex/), and Psyco
    (http://psyco.sourceforge.net/) will be briefly compared. The talk will
    conclude with some thoughts about the potential performance benefits of
    dynamic typing over static typing.


    Toying With Python - Highlighting "Keywords" in a Body of HTML Text
    Danny Yoo <>

    Danny will demonstrate several approaches to solving a "simple" text
    processing problem including several wrong turns along the way to show
    what not to do. Both correctness and performance will be important in
    this problem. The tutorial should briefly cover: brute-force searching,
    dictionaries, regular expressions, and if we have time, maybe even
    something like the Aho-Corasick automaton.


    BayPIGgies meetings are in Stanford, California. For more information
    and directions, see http://www.baypiggies.net/


    Advance notice: The May 13 meeting will have a PyCon trip report from
    Guido van Rossum and Aahz.
