We invite you for the next meetup!

Pykonik is a community of those using, learning or curious of Python. Our meeting details can also be found on our website, where you can sign up to give a talk at the next meeting:

This time we will host the following talks:

  • [ENG] Łukasz Dudek - Type hints 101

Type hints have been around since Python 3.5 & they're slowly encroaching further into most of the standard library as well as popular third-party libraries around the Python ecosystem. Want to know how to start annotating your code? I'll tell you a bit about the rationale behind using them, explain basic syntax, show what can be achieved with typing library & the "official third party" static type checker - mypy.

  • [ENG] Michał Wysokiński - Sending config files to 270 000 servers using Python

So you've got a lot of servers running many different combinations of your services. How do you ship their configs? There's actually a number of ways to achieve that: Ansible, etcd/confd, distributed file system or maybe simple plain env vars. However all of them give up when the number of your servers is 270 000 and growing... How to ship all that data? Imagine shipping a 500MB blacklist file with malicious domains at this scale. How to provide consistency? You don't want to serve an old version of your client's website when there's a short term sales event. Or how to make sure that the change you are going to send is safe for the network? Remember any famous CDN failures because of a bad config file? There are many challenges in the world of Metadata at scale and during the talk you'll see how Akamai is dealing with them using our beloved Python.

...and as always - lightning talks - ~5 minutes talks that can be given by anyone on any topic. Talk to us either online or during the event if you want to give one!
