NetworkZero: network support for clubs, classes & dojos
Tim Golden | Saturday 12:00 | Room D
NetworkZero is a Python package designed to make two things easy in a group situation: finding the machines in a network; and sending and receiving messages.
It consists of two parts: a UDP beacon which advertises services by name and discovers other service adverts; and a messaging API which offers simple to-and-fro communication as well as simple pub-sub ("news") facilities.
The talk will cover the origins of the module, its use, and the obstacles which might prevent its wider adoption.
