### How to Unlock the Power of Randomization to Create Intriguing Scripts in Python - Doug Purcell

Randomization is a fascinating somewhat overlooked portion of life, so let's get more familiar with it by writing some cool python programs such as a Random Person Generator, A Dice Game, and California State lottery simulator.

### Ray: A System for High-performance, Distributed Python Applications - Dean Wampler

Ray is an open-source, distributed framework from U.C. Berkeley’s RISELab that easily scales Python applications from a laptop to a cluster, with an emphasis on the unique performance challenges of ML/AI systems. It is now used in many production deployments.


Dean Wampler is an expert in streaming systems, focusing on ML/AI. He is Head of Developer Relations at, which is developing Ray for distributed Python.

## Main talk (25 mins+Q&A)

### Good to the Last Drop: Writing Robust Flask Apps - Isaac Evans

Having developed Flask- and Python-based tools ourselves, we recognize the importance and potential of using automated tools to write more secure and performant applications. We partnered with the creators of common frameworks like Flask and Django to identify common “gotchas” and how to build robust Python web apps.

The presentation will cover:
* Brief overview of common web security problems
* Common gotchas for Flask (and Django)
* Tools for robust Python backend development
* Q&A


Isaac Evans is the leader of r2c, a small startup working on giving security tools directly to developers. Previously, he conducted research into binary exploitation bypasses for techniques like control-flow integrity and novel hardware defenses on new architectures like RISC-V as a researcher at the US Defense Department under a SFS program and at MIT Lincoln Laboratory.
