Introduction to the Pyramid, the new web framework taking the python world by storm. This tutorial will cover the basics of a hello world app and cover some of the advanced features of pyramid that give it it's power such as traversal. Pyramid is part of the pylons project and is a successor to pylons and a continuation of the BFG framework. It's very simple to learn, runs fast yet has powerful concepts which help keep large web app creation a sane process.
In this talk I'll be running through the current choices of web micro frameworks and comparing them by implementing a simple application.
This will be a panel discussion wherein we wax philosophical about the state of web frameworks in Python - talking about invention, reinvention, multitudes of choice, how all of them suck, etc. Panelists will include Dylan Jay, Malcolm Tredinnick, Russell Keith-Magee and Richard Jones.
