This month:

  • Why use Python Type Hints? - by Neil Pilgrim

Python already has types - what are these newfangled hints you speak of? Are they trying to turn my lovely Python into an overly-verbose strict language like Java or C++? Let's explore what these new(ish) aspects of the language look like, and what benefits they can bring - if you want to use them!

  • Lessons Learned During Advent of Code 2018 by Chris Freeman postponed

About our speakers:

Neil Pilgrim built up his development skills writing scientific physics simulations in C++, but now mainly develops in Python as his language of choice. In the last year or two he has become increasingly engaged with the Open Source Zulip team-chat community after sprinting with them at PyCon 2017, which opened his eyes to the wonder and challenges that Type Hints bring to Python!

Join us afterward upstairs at Bailey's Upper Lip (213 SW Broadway) to continue our snaky discussions over a beverage.

  • Writing a web-based Python debugger by Bernard Sanders Debuggers can be tricky to use for new developers. Could we lower the barrier to entry by providing a more graphical debugger in a web UI? In this talk, I'll show the first version of the WUI debugger I added to my company's product, discuss how I built it, and some of the interesting things I learned on the way.

Bernard is co-founder and CTO of CloudBolt software, which produces the leading hybrid cloud management platform. Bernard crafts the vision for the CloudBolt product and is an advocate for shared DevOps practices and enablement of hybrid cloud. Prior to CloudBolt, he worked on automating operations for more than 75 enterprise IT shops over 18 years in myriad roles at JPL, Loudcloud, Opsware, and HP. He holds patents for bare metal provisioning, Cloud Resource Orchestration, and Self-Service IT Catalog. Bernard lives in Portland, OR where he enjoys cross country skiing, being a Big Brother in BBBS, and volunteering with Puzzled Pint.
