No introduction yet
A couple of years, hobbyist-level interest.
I use Ruby every day, but I'm not producing Ruby for work projects.
I'm a professional freelance developer, so that value changes.
I attended the meetup yesterday at Panino's and there seemed to me alot of mid level to advanced users in the group. I know this was brought up briefly but do you plan on doing any beginner level presentations? Ex: small project from start to finish just to see how it all ties in and works together?
Hi there David, I was a member of your PHP group and unfortunately worked so much I never had the opportunity to come to a meeting. This year I have a very liberal schedule and I just subscribed to your python group and look forward to hopefully meeting you all and helping out in anyway I can.
David, thanks again, for joining. You may compile some .py on my rpi on Saturday! until then do the emulator shuffle! We'll be doing lots of shell stuff to show people how to set up.
In the mean time, here is an article from last september that might be interesting:
Also, I plan on making some serious instructional videos on the pi by years end. We should discuss you doing some python modules for that...
Have you seen http://www.pythonsecurity.org/ ? We can certainly discuss anything you'd like but as a sysadmin in a previous life my code examples are usually pretty horrific. :) Currently my biggest beef with web apps in general are the architectural design implementations that lead to cross site request forgery issues. I find few people are addressing CSRF in their apps, almost everything on the internet is vulnerable, it's hard to fix and it's a difficult topic to explain to folks. PAINFUL!
I look forward to upcoming meetings. Thank You!
