Alex Martelli, author of Python in a Nutshell and one of the editors of the Python Cookbook, will be speaking on "Python for Programmers" tomorrow evening, April 10th. Ideal for programmers who have not had much exposure to Python, the talk will provide a rapid overview of the main characteristics of the language plus a brief synopsis of its main implementations, its standard library and its third-party extension packages.

As with all sessions of the Open Source Developers @ Google Speaker Series, Alex's presentation will be open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 PM at our Mountain View campus; guests should plan to sign in at Building 42 reception upon arrival. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome and encouraged to attend. Alex's presentation will also be taped and published on Google Video.

For those of you who were unable to attend Jeremy Allison's recent presentation on the "The Current State of Samba," you can check out the video.
