Over the next couple of weeks, Yelp is going to be hosting two open-to-the-public events for members of the software development community:
PyPy Just-in-Time Interpreters
March 3rd, 6pm
Armin Rigo of the PyPy project will be giving a presentation on achievements made by PyPy, the "fastest, most compatible, and most stable 'alternative' Python interpreter." Special attention will be given to advancements in the area of dynamic (JIT) interpreters. You can find more information on SFPython's Meetup page. If you plan to come, make sure to RSVP at least a day in advance so that security will allow you into the building.
San Francisco Hadoop User Meetup
March 9th, 6pm
The third SF Hadoop meetup will be taking place at Yelp! The meetup is discussion-based, using an "unconference" format. Agenda and topics are determined at the beginning of the meeting (and anyone may volunteer a topic), but a proposed theme for the upcoming session is "integration." The session is expected to last approximately 2 hours, and more information is also available on the SF Hadoop Meetup page. Again, please make sure to RSVP at least a day in advance in order to be admitted past security.
