Talks

  • Using PyPy instead of Python for speed

    Niklas Bivald

    Using PyPy - a faster version of Python for long running applications - as a first step to speed up your application.

  • Ansible & Terraform for Django: Move Faster, break fewer things

    Ezequiel Golub

    Intro level talk about using Ansible and Terraform together. These tools allow you to provision cloud resources such as Virtual Servers or CDN and to set up your servers with whatever software is needed. This allows to treat infrastructure as code, a cornerstone of DevOps.

  • Messenger chat with Python

    Akos Hochrein

    Chatbots are getting more and more in mainstream product development. In this talk, I would like to show you how to setup a one on the Facebook Messenger platform using Python and Heroku, so you can get started right away!

  • Django Monolith to Google Container Engine

    Arthur Koziel & Aysin Oruz

    We transitioned our Django monolith from bare-metal to Google Cloud Container Engine (Kubernetes). We will share our findings during this journey.

  • Design Patterns in Python

    Peter Ullrich

    Software Design Patterns are commonly used in professional software development and are important for aspiring programmers and senior developers alike. However, their implementation differs based on the programming language used. This talk will explain how to implement some of the most used Design Patterns in Python.

  • Telling stories with data: from analysis to web visualisations

    Éléonore Mayola

    When analysing datasets one usually creates static visualisations. But wouldn't it be nice to use the same project to share interactive web visualisations without learning new tools. Altair is a Python API using JSON to build visualisations in a Jupyter notebook or in the browser. My talk will take the audience through using Altair to analyse a dataset and generate web based visualisations with Python.

  • Dockerizing the Python

    Ambreen Sheikh

    The focus of this talk will be on building and running python programs in a docker container. A major chunk of the talk will also concentrate on the docker setup & it’s complete echo system. The purpose behind the talk is the demonstrate the usage of docker in everyday python development & deployment environment.

  • Bayesian Inference in Python

    Nuo Xu

    With recent improvements in sampling algorithms, now is a great time to learn Bayesian statistics. I will start with an introduction to Bayesian statistics and continue by taking a look at two popular packages for doing Bayesian inference in Python, PyMC3 and PyStan.
