  "Eventlet" networking library

  Presented by:
    Ambroff Linden, Linden Lab

  'Eventlet' is an open source library maintained by Linden Lab,
  makers of the 'Second Life' virtual world.  Eventlet is a networking
  library for the Python programming language that allows the creation
  of hugely scalable web services.  It can also be used for writing
  tools that manage 6000-8000 servers concurrently.

  This talk will examine concurrency models: processes and threads
  event driven and Eventlet.  Ambroff will then explain Eventlet internals,
  talk about how Linden Lab uses Eventlet for highly scalable web services
  and tools, and demonstrate a COMET-style live chat web application or
  publish/subscribe (asynchronous messaging system), written in Django,
  running on the WSGI server 'Spawning,' and powered by Eventlet.
