On January 25–26, 2007 there is the programming contest Plat_Forms
"Plat_Forms is an international programming contest. It aims at
comparing different technological platforms for developing web-based
applications: Java EE, .NET/ASP, PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby-on-Rails."
The contest aims at the fact that there is no neutral comparison
between the various web frameworks. To change that a total of 15
teams wich 3 persons each will compete. There is a maximum of 3 teams
So if you want to represent the Python community with Pylons, form a
team of 3 and apply at http://www.plat-forms.org. The application
deadline is November 30, 2006!
My role in Plat_Forms is to represent the Python community in the
contest commitee. I'm taking both part in deciding which teams will
participate in the contest and evaluating the contest results.
If you have any questions feel free to ask here, or mail to Lutz
