have you set the PYTHONPATH to ./src ?
cd examples/bulletins
peak runIni bulletins createdb

in PEAK you use the EventDriven Component as App-Component (or
subclasses of it) instead of Twistd. peak.event.Tasks are then
scheduled in the TwistedReactor that can use async io/deferreds

right .. ini- and ZConfigFiles are the way to go.

i'm working on an peak.web example that uses twisted.http-server


the files at:

might be of interest. it shows how to use the twisted.http-Server 
with the web-features of peak. the other modules try to fill
gaps that exist now with some q&d solutions.

its work in progress, so don't expect anything polished.

hope this helps a bit further
