Description

Python in Video Games and Multimedia Projects

Presented by Mr. Chris McCormick

This talk will cover several real-world uses of Python in cross platform video game and multimedia projects, and the tips, tricks, and techniques I learned along the way whilst working on those projects. I'll speak about the issues involved in cross platform desktop dev with wxPython, interfacing with multimedia programs using subprocess, spreading load with multiprocessing, developing for the web on small devices with Django, and when and how to write custom network servers using asyncore.
