Don't miss these two new talks, added to the program over the weekend.

Joe Gregorio will speak in the Python track on Thursday morning. In Threading Is Not A Model he writes

We have many concurrency/multiprocessing capabilities at our finger tips, such as threads, processes, locks, mutexes, select, epoll, transactional memory, etc. But none of them are a model for multiprocessing, they are only tools on which you would build an implementation of such a model. So what are the models we can choose from? How would they be implemented in Python? And how do they relate to the principle of sufficient irritation?

Meanwhile, Jeffrey Osier-Mixon from MontaVista will speak about effectively managing documentation in open source projects. He explains that documentation is an often overlooked, but essential part of a project.

Documentation is a vital user-facing component of all serious projects, open-source and otherwise, but it is often overlooked—-or, worse, dealt with in fire-drill mode just before going to manufacturing or market. However, documentation is a project’s backbone. It is often what users and OEMs see first, and it is also the place you want users to look when they have questions or problems (so they don’t have to call you).

Catch Jeffrey's talk on Thursday afternoon.
