7pm - Talks

Sharing Files Securely with Korra - Daniel Quinn

Back when he worked for the government, Daniel was struck by the fact that even an elaborate institution like his employer had no safe means of transferring files. Instead, would-be secure documents were emailed from person to person, unencrypted, across public networks because there was no viable alternative for those involved.

This gave rise to a quick & dirty way to make file sharing safer whilst still not requiring non-technical users to understand or install complex software. Korra is a simple Django-based web service that employs symmetric encryption and makes sharing files securely easy for everyone.

PyCharm - Antonio Martin

A walkthrough of the PyCharm features that aid in Django development.

A quick introduction to unit testing Django projects with tox - Jeremy Taylor

How and why you should use tox instead of to run Django unit tests like all the cool kids.

8pm - SpaceBar

Our venue, Code Node, have a brilliant bar open serving both soft and alcoholic drinks, as well as snacks. Our tab is provided by our kind sponsor Anand Ltd.

9:45pm - The Red Lion

The Space Bar shuts, so we'll migrate across the road to the Red Lion pub, where we can have a final drink.
