Armin Rigo and Maciej Fijalowski will be in town for PyCon next week,
and they've agreed to hang out at Noisebridge for an open discussion
about their badass alternative implentation of Python called PyPy.

PyPy Discussion
Tuesday @ 6pm

Location within NB to be determined.  Check the whiteboard at the
front of Noisebridge when you walk in.


PyPy is a fast, compliant alternative implementation of the Python
language (2.7.2). It has several advantages and distinct features:

* Speed: thanks to its Just-in-Time compiler, Python programs often
run faster on PyPy. (What is a JIT compiler?)
* Memory usage: large, memory-hungry Python programs might end up
taking less space than they do in CPython.
* Compatibility: PyPy is highly compatible with existing python code.
It supports ctypes and can run popular python libraries like twisted
and django.
* Sandboxing: PyPy provides the ability to run untrusted code in a
fully secure way.
* Stackless: PyPy comes by default with support for stackless mode,
providing micro-threads for massive concurrency.
