What we're about

The OrlandoPy(thon) User Group is for users, enthusiasts, and students in Orlando, Florida, interested in the Python computer programming language. We meet monthly to discuss and present emerging issues and interesting projects in Python, practice our skill, and trade stories from the workforce. All skill levels are welcome.

You can view past talks on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmkllD-uGD4J5wAzCWxF3qQ) and check out our GitHub (https://github.com/orlandopython) org.

Our community is governed by our Code of Conduct (https://github.com/orlandopython/code-of-conduct)

Anvil: Full-Stack Web With Nothing But Python

Online event

Welcome Pythonistas!

Building a modern web app requires so much: HTML, CSS, JS, Python, SQL, React, Bootstrap, Webpack, Flask... What if we could build a better abstraction?

Our answer is Anvil (https://anvil.works): a full-stack Python environment where everything is a Python object, from your UI components to your database rows. In this talk, I'll walk you through how and why we constructed this new approach to the web.

We'll start with a question: Why is web programming hard? It's because your data takes so many forms: database rows, Python objects, JSON on REST, JS objects, HTML DOM, and finally pixels. Most of a web developer's job is translating between these awkwardly different representations. Frameworks like Django help, but now you have a stack of leaky abstractions: web frameworks, ORMs, JS frameworks, CSS frameworks, build tools... These frameworks help you go faster, but they double the amount you need to know!
So I'll show our stab at an answer: A framework where everything is a Python object, requests to the server are function calls, and Python is a browser-side language. I'll talk about running Python in the browser. I'll talk about full-stack autocompletion. There will even be live coding.

Meredydd is one of the original creators of the Anvil web framework. He learnt to program with QBASIC, and still misses that accessible on-ramp into programming. He did his PhD in building usable programming systems, and has worked on projects from messaging apps to the Linux kernel. He’s based in Cambridge (the one on the Cam, not the on the Charles). In his spare time, you used to find him dancing ballroom and latin, or flying an aeroplane. These days, he enjoys a rich social life of staring at glowing boxes and talking to people who aren’t there.
