Meeting Tonight! 2015-01-21

Location – Gordmans Office Building in Aksarben thanks to Aaron Keck.

Meeting starts at 6pm, Wednesday, 1/21/15

Parking and entry details:

The building is the northwest corner of 67th and Frances and the Gordmans entrance is next to the “g” sign, about midway along the East side of the building. There’s parking directly out front, but it sometimes fills up in the evenings. The garage around back is open to the public after 5:30 or 6 as well.

The building doors lock at 5, so Aaron will be standing by to badge people in starting around 5:45. If you’re running late, or early, just shoot him or the list an email.

December Meeting Notes

We had a great meeting which included a raffle of the awesome Python book, Learning Python 4th Edition.  Thanks to O’Reilly Publishing.

Further topics included, in no particular order:

  • Tox – a generic virtualenv management and test command line tool
  • Bitbucket – for private remote repositories
  • Virtualenvwrapper – a set of extensions to Ian Bicking’s virtualenv tool.
  • Django Data Migrations in 1.7
  • Moving from Django 1.2 to 1.7.
  • python-social-auth – an easy to setup social authentication/registration mechanism with support for several frameworks and auth providers.
  • yamjam – a multi-project, shared, yaml based configuration system.
  • dhp – A collection of handy modules, almost guaranteed to get you into trouble.
  • dennis python package – a set of utilities for working with PO files to ease development and improve quality.

Merry Christmas to all!

March Meeting Info – v2

Jeff will be presenting the opening round of our todo.txt respin with python for the “New to Python or Programming” section.  The goals for the night’s section will be:

  •  Defining the problem
  •  Initial architecture of the solution
  •  Building a corner-stone class
  •  Writing our first tests (not necessarily in that order <g>)

To get ready for the fun, bring a laptop or device with:

We don’t have an advanced level talk set in stone yet, so if you are yearning to talk about a project you are working on, something in the standard or 3rd party libs that saved your bacon or just made you say “Cool.” We’d love to have you tell us about it. No experience required.

Door Prize: O’Reilly Python Book.

Wednesday, March 21st at 7pm.  See the where and when page for directions.

In the future Jeff plans on doing a session on supporting Python 2 and 3 just like CherryPy does.   And since he plans on using Tox which was written by Holger Krekel (the same guy who develops py.test) we figured now would be a good time for us to tryout py.test.
