Thanks for the feedback. 

Well
 the Santa Claus Problem is a problem in thread synchronization. If you 
replace reindeer and elves with say, a manager waiting for N out of M 
sensors or web 
services, then the reasons for and the techniques used to solve the 
Santa Claus problem 
become more interesting.

I think a video of the talk was made. However it seems to be lost or misplaced. Please ask questions about what is unclear.

Yes let me do a few small things and make this so. 

Once again, thanks for the feedback.

Cheers,
Andrew

Hi Stackless Pythonistas:

The deadline for?submitting a proposal for PyCon Canada 2012 is October 1st. The details are here:??http://www.pycon.ca/?.

Given that the talk is in November, I was thinking about giving a new version of my "How To Solve a Problem Like Santa Claus." This talk was very last minute and given on December 17th, 2011. The slides are here:?http://www.slideshare.net/montrealpython/mp26-how-do-you-solve-a-problem-like-santa-claus?. I am re-working the talk. However I would really appreciate feedback. Also I would happily give anyone that wishes to look at the code, access to my bitbucket account. One of these days, I'll resume work on it.?

Cheers,
Andrew

P.S:?A note. The last slide "The Ghosts of Software Present, Past and Future" is an inside joke of sorts on the still-born Software Agent framework of Chandler.?

It's a good title for a presentation, but personally I am not that
interested in solving problems like Santa Claus or sure why I should
be, off the bat.  I've paged through the presentation, and while it
looks interesting, like most sets of slides they aren't enough on
their own to understand.

If you record yourself giving the presentation and upload it to
youtube or something in not too high a quality, I'm happy to watch it
and give feedback.  As I am sure others would be.

I suggest you make your code publically available and post the link,
so that people (in general) can check it out on a whim so as to make
it more easy to help out.

Cheers,
Richard.
