I posted my TurboGears2 slides from FUDCon 2008 Boston here. Since I gave a TurboGears1 talk at the previous FUDCon (slides here), I based this recent talk on the assumption that people already understand some of the basic concepts of TG1. During the session I covered a wide range of technologies, including WSGI, Pylons, ToscaWidgets, Paste, SQLAlchemy, SQLObject, Kid, Genshi, Beaker, DBSprockets, DBMechanic, jQuery, Comet, Orbited, etc.
For more details about this app, including screenshots and code snippets, take a look at my slides. You can also grab the code and dive in (note: you'll need to setup TG2 in a virtualenv (instructions) until the stack makes its way into Fedora):
git clone git://fedorapeople.org/~lmacken/manas
Now, this app is merely a prototype that I started writing as an example for teaching TG2. As it turns out, this project could potentially be extremely useful, and I've received a lot of positive feedback around it. However, there is still a little bit of work to do before it is deployable. If you're interested in helping out, please drop me a line.
