David Euresti (Dropbox)

Jan/29 Tue 05:00PM-06:00PM 4-237

Enrollment: Unlimited: No advance sign-up

One of the biggest surprises that people get from Dropbox is when they find out that the Desktop Client is written almost entirely in Python.  Come find out how with the help of some awesome libraries Dropbox is able to support Windows (from 2000 all the way to 8), Mac (From Tiger to Mountain Lion) and many flavors of Linux all from the same code base.


This class is one of six being offered by MIT alumni who currently work at Dropbox.
