Rich UI Webapps with TurboGears 2 and Dojo Screencast

The PyCon 2008 talk videos are making their way up to YouTube. My talk is not yet there, and the footage they’re putting up right now is the “raw” footage from the camera at the back of the room. I have posted a screencast version of my talk, “Rich UI Webapps with TurboGears 2 and Dojo”:

This is basically the same talk I gave at PyCon, but I made a few tweaks to make all of the code easier to follow.

Speaking of the code, you can download the “DumbSurveys.com” demo application to review the code at your leisure and run it on your own computer. The file is 10MB because it includes the complete Dojo toolkit, and I set it up using zc.buildout, so it’s trivial to get it running. Take a look at the README.txt file to get it running.

You can run the sample without the Comet functionality, but if you’d like to try the app with Comet you’ll want some kind of Bayeux server running on port 8001. I used the Twisted Cometd server for my demo.
