For May's presentation night on 5/14, we will learn more about Deployment and Packaging from Noah Kantrowitz, with lightning talks and announcements in between the two talks.
Noah Kantrowitz is a web developer turned infrastructure automation enthusiast, and all around engineering rabble-rouser. By day he builds tools and services for Balanced, and by night he leads the Python Software Foundation infrastructure team. He is an active member of the Chef community, and enjoys merge commits, cat pictures, and beards.
Deploying a moderately complex web application has become quite a challenge over the years. As best-practices have evolved, it has become progressively more time-consuming to keep up with what tools exist and how to use them effectively. This talk will provide an overview of the ecosystem and provide pointers for more information about individual components or problems.
In the last 18 months the Python packaging world has seen an explosion of activity. In this talk you will learn what the packaging community has been hard at work on and how you can take advantage of the latest tools and techniques in your Python environments.
