[vox] BayPIGgies meeting Thursday October 09,2008: Pygame multimedia hacking

BayPIGgies meeting Thursday October 09, 2008: 
PyGameSF: A story of multimedia hacking fun with Python
By Harry Tormey and Andrew Turley. 

This talk will give an overview of the technologies available for
creating multimedia projects with Python, how the PyGameSF meet up got
started, what it's all about, and an overview of the wide variety of
projects presented at our meetups. 

Tonight's Newbie Nugget is... 
Unittesting with Mock, presented by Daryl Spitzer 

I'll present examples using Michael Foord's Mock library to create unit
tests with mocks or stubs taking the place of module and built-in
As Mr. Foord writes in 
"Most mocking libraries follow the 'record -> replay' pattern of
mocking. I prefer the 'action -> assertion' pattern, which is more
readable and intuitive particularly when working with the Python
unittest module."

Location: Google Campus 
Building 40, the Seville room
