L.A. Professional Python,

We're ready for our 2nd meetup on Tuesday, August 19th at TrueCar in Santa Monica at 7pm.Mr. John Mitchell will again captivate us as he presents on "Automatic Parameter Optimization".Programs have lots of configuration where the "best" values are not obvious. This talk shows how to automatically and efficiently findoptimal settings under static and dynamic constraints.

    I mentioned the "Tricking out Linux kernel networking" talk last night. I'll be giving an excerpt of it tomorrow at Santa Monica Coloft -- please drop by!
    Summary: "We are all familiar with classical TCP sockets. The Linux kernel gives us lots of other sockets, and internal services, to accomplish cool tricks with minimal effort."

    Thanks to Chris and Keith and TrueCar for hosting the meetup! I'm looking forward to see what people come up with to talk about next month.

Here is the Optimization slide link: http://johntellsall.com/class/auto-optimize/slides/index.html and optimize.py source code: http://johntellsall.com/class/auto-optimize/optimize.html and original Hyperopt paper is #2 on this page: https://github.com/jaberg/hyperopt/wiki/Scipy2013

    hi everyone! This meeting will be a little different. After highlighting upcoming classes, then talking about automatic optimization (which is cool!), we'll open it up to the floor for discussion. What do *you* want out of Professional Python? What topics are of interest? What format should future meetups be in? It's *our* group, let's make it work for us!

    I'm excited to see you all on Tuesday! The talk is on optimizing workflows, for example how many procs to run in parallel depending on RAM, CPUs, and other things. In practice the technique works well: it's closer to the "magic" vs "pedestrian" end of things :)
