A group for anyone interested in Python, Django, cloud computing, deployment, provisioning, virtualization and related technologies. We'll meet up 3 to 4 times a year in Amsterdam, mostly @ HQ of hosting company Byte. All skill levels are welcome!
Some game rules to take into account:
Byte welcomes everyone willing to attend the meetup in our cool office with pizza and drinks. Our meetups are very popular and therefor have the tendency to have a waiting list. Pythonistas present on previous meet ups do have a first call on the guest list. If you are or were a no show (which means you did not put yourself on absent before 12:00 the day before the meetup), you will be listed as such and automatically be placed on the waiting list (instead of the guest list) for following meetups. If you, although placed on the waiting list, really, really, really want to come, please contact Byte directly.
Interested in doing a (lightning) talk or any other questions or suggestions? Get in touch with us!
This group is for sharing knowledge and having fun. No recruitment allowed.
The program for April 11th:
* Door opens at 18:00
* Pizza and drinks at 18:15
* 19:00 - 19:10 Welcome
* 19:15 – 20:00 Talk 1: Nick Groenen - Ethics in IT
"As computer programmers, we write code that has the potential to reach
thousands of people. With computing permeating our society a little more with each passing day, the programs we write now have the potential to affect people's lives in greater and greater ways, for better or for worse.
This talk aims to look at some of the consequences these advancements in our field have on people's lives and explores the importance of ethics in our daily work. It ends with concrete suggestions on how you, a regular programmer with no formal education or schooling in ethics, can help improve our field"
* 20:00 - 20:10 Short break
* 20:15 - 20:45 Talk 2: Noam Tenne - We need a better testing framework
"Python has a super rich and active ecosystem, and py.test is great, but I believe we deserve a better testing framework. This is why I've started developing a new framework named "Nimoy". Using Nimoy, I set out to make Python testing beautiful, expressive, pragmatic and fun"
The framework is named "Nimoy" and you can find it in github at: https://github.com/browncoat-ninjas/nimoy
* 20:45 - 21:15 Talk 3: TBA
* 21:15 - 22:00 Drinks
Make sure your RSVP is right. We're looking forward to it.
