Mali Akmanalp – Other people’s messy data (and how not to hate it!) – PyCon 2015

2 years ago
“Speaker: Mali Akmanalp Have you ever viscerally hated a dataset? Do you want to just get data cleaning out of the way? Are you always left wondering how it consumes most of your time? Whether you work in the sciences, work with government data or scrape websites, data cleaning is a necessary evil. We’ll share […]
James Cammarata – Achieving Continuous Delivery: An Automation Story – PyCon 2015

James Cammarata – Achieving Continuous Delivery: An Automation Story – PyCon 2015

2 years ago
“Speaker: James Cammarata Continuos Deployment is the act of deploying software constantly. The idea is if “”release early, release often”” is good, releasing very often is better. It’s not trivial. Automation is part of the battle, and testing is another. Learn to use tools like Jenkins and Ansible to move from deploying software once a […]

Ian Cordasco – Cutting Off the Internet: Testing Applications that Use Requests – PyCon 2015

2 years ago
“Speaker: Ian Cordasco A brief and opinionated view of testing applications and libraries that use requests by a core-developer of requests. You will receive an overview of testing with responses, vcr, httpretty, mock, and betamax. Slides can be found at: speakerdeck.com/pycon2015 and github.com/PyCon/2015-slides“
Allison Kaptur – Bytes in the Machine: Inside the CPython interpreter – PyCon 2015

Allison Kaptur – Bytes in the Machine: Inside the CPython interpreter – PyCon 2015

2 years ago
“Speaker: Allison Kaptur Have you ever wondered how the CPython interpreter works? Do you know where to find a 1,500 line switch statement in CPython? I’ll talk about the structure of the interpreter that we all use every day by explaining how Ned Batchelder and I chased down a mysterious bug in Byterun, a Python […]
Glyph – The Ethical Consequences Of Our Collective Activities – PyCon 2015

Glyph – The Ethical Consequences Of Our Collective Activities – PyCon 2015

2 years ago
“Speaker: Glyph As more of the world is controlled by software, software developers have an increasing obligation to serve that world well. Yet, we don’t yet have a sense of what makes a good ethical standard. The fast pace, success, and youth (in both historical and demographic terms) of our industry have given us the […]
Dan Tracy – Ship it: Deployments with Pip – PyCon 2015

Dan Tracy – Ship it: Deployments with Pip – PyCon 2015

2 years ago
“Speaker: Dan Tracy Gone are the days where creating system packages or scp-ing tar balls were required for deployment. With Pip, Fabric, and Jenkins we’ve developed a pipeline to simplify deployments and rollbacks that dove-tails into configuration management and virtualization. New machines can come fully deployed and ready to rock at a moments notice allowing […]
Olivier Grisel – Build and test wheel packages on Linux, OSX & Windows – PyCon 2015

Olivier Grisel – Build and test wheel packages on Linux, OSX & Windows – PyCon 2015

2 years ago
“Speaker: Olivier Grisel Practical guide to build and test wheel packages for all platforms using free Continuous Integration services such as Travis CI (Linux and OSX) and AppVeyor (Windows). Slides can be found at: speakerdeck.com/pycon2015 and github.com/PyCon/2015-slides“

en zyme, Jon Henner – Pythons are Deaf, So are Some Pythonistas – PyCon 2015

2 years ago
“Speakers: en zyme, Jon Henner ASL, like Python, is a language which is both fun and powerful. We have used Python to build a tool, ASL-CLeaR (American Sign Language Concept Learning Resource) for the DHH community which will teach STEM terminology using ASL exclusively. We are also building a summer program to teach Python in […]
Elizabeth Ramirez – Graph Database Patterns in Python – PyCon 2015

Elizabeth Ramirez – Graph Database Patterns in Python – PyCon 2015

2 years ago
“Speaker: Elizabeth Ramirez Creating and using models from a graph database can be quite different to the ones used for row/column/document-oriented databases, in the sense that the same query patterns could differ significantly in structure and performance. This session will present how to create models in Python for Titan property graphs, that allow you to […]
Domen Kožar – Rethinking packaging, development and deployment – PyCon 2015

Domen Kožar – Rethinking packaging, development and deployment – PyCon 2015

2 years ago
“Speaker: Domen Kožar Applying functional programming ideas to solve the problem of packaging software and configuration of systems in a stateless and deterministic way. Nix project addresses those problems in unique way based on academic research that has been applied to real world software collections in last 10 years.

Laura Rupprecht – Describing Descriptors – PyCon 2015

Laura Rupprecht – Describing Descriptors – PyCon 2015

2 years ago
“Speaker: Laura Rupprecht The Python library uses descriptors frequently, but most developers overlook this feature. This talk will cover what a descriptor is, the current uses in the standard library, and how custom descriptors can be used in a developer’s toolset to eliminate repeated code.
