Surpass Talk to Python Ireland

I gave a talk about Surpass and XLWT recently to Python Ireland, as part of an evening themed as joint Ruby/Python talks. Surpass is a native Ruby library for creating Excel spreadsheets, which I will be writing a lot more about in the near future. It's a port to Ruby of the Python library XLWT. Vicky Lee did a fantastic job of recording and editing my talk, and it's up on Vimeo if you'd like to hear me talk about why you might want to create Excel spreadsheets, and how to do it with Surpass (or XLWT).

You can also download the slides in PDF format.
