TriPython March 2016 Meeting: Chasing Cats around the London Underground Using Python and Neo4j

Chasing cats is difficult. Public transportation is confusing. We will look at a simulation of a number of people trying to find their lost pet cat on the Tube. James Whisnant, a developer with the Carolina Population Center, will introduce graph databases and Neo4j in particular. He will introduce us to Cypher, the Neo4j query language and use py2neo, a python Neo4j binding, to modify a Neo4j database. You will visualize Neo4j database graphs in a web browser during the simulation while looking at Python code. Extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don't need to be pre-announced. Lightning talks are for you to "show and tell" something you've learned about Python recently, no matter how small. We all use Python, therefore, we are always learning something new about Python that we can tell others. Please see the parking instructions on the BCC website. A wide variety of possibilities for the after-meeting are within steps of BCC.

Durham Project Night

Durham Project Night meets on third Mondays. Have a project you want to show off, share, seek help with, or just get some work done surrounded by like minded Python lovers? Join us for our monthly project night and do just that! Don't have something to work on? Just need some help with Python? Show up and enjoy the energy, sprint on an open source project, find something interesting to contribute to or be inspired by! The setting is informal and there is no schedule, so don't worry if you show up past the start time. Whether you are a Python newbie needing help or have an open source project you want to share, come hang out and hack. Park in the municipal deck on the other side of the Arts Council across W.

TriPython February 2016 Meeting: Debugging Hung Python Processes With GDB

When things go wrong in production, it can be necessary to troubleshoot problems where they occur, instead of in a development environment. In those situations having a working knowledge of GDB, GDB Python Extensions, and strace is very helpful. Brian Bouterse will show some simple techniques to get insight into those situations. This talk outlines a variety of debugging techniques for connecting to an already running, "stuck", or deadlocked Python process using GDB. Together we will inspect the current state of threads with and without the help of the new GDB macros for Python, inspect a local running process and a core dump collected from a remote machine, use strace to gather system call information about a process, and discuss the SIGTRAP handler as a proactive way to make rpdb available in production. Brian Bouterse is a Senior Software Engineer at Red Hat. He is a developer on Pulp which is written in Python and deploys Python software among other types (rpm, puppet, docker, etc). He also is a contributor to the Kombu project. Brian loves open source because he loves freedom, collaboration, and choice. He is a Computer Science PhD candidate at North Carolina State University where he studies capacity planning and performance analysis. He lives in Raleigh near NCSU with his wife Katie and his cat Schmowee. Extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don't need to be pre-announced. Plenty of free after hours parking is available in the upper level of the deck behind WebAssign (turn through the median just before the intersection of Varsity and Main Campus Drives). If the door is locked, call the number posted on the door. An after-meeting location for food and beverage will be decided at the meeting (usually BaDa Wings for the Thursday night draught specials).

TriPython December 2015 Meeting: Chemical Informatics with Python and GPUs

Chemical Informatics or Cheminformatics applies and develops methods in computer science and artificial intelligence to solve problems in chemistry. It covers a wide range of application areas like prediction of chemical reactions, computer-assisted structure elucidation, generation of molecules spaces, and more. Traditionally, there has been a focus on the pharmaceutical drug development pipeline. Because of the dramatic growth of biological and chemical data, often referred to as "Big Data", the applicability of computational methods like data mining and machine learning has been extended to nearly every corner of chemical sciences. Application of GPU accelerators enable computational researchers to push the boundaries of discovery with processing this "Big Chemical Data". In this introductory talk, Dr. Olexandr Isayev presents an overview of these developments, platforms, and early successful applications in his lab as well as in the field. Dr. Isayev is a Research Scientist at UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 2008, he received his Ph.D. in computational chemistry from Jackson State University. He was Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Case Western Reserve University and a senior scientist at the US Army ERDC before joining UNC in 2013. Dr. Isayev received the “Emerging Technology Award” from the American Chemical Society (ACS) and the GPU Computing Award from NVIDIA in 2014. His research interests focus on making sense of chemical data with molecular modeling and machine learning. Extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don't need to be pre-announced. Lightning talks are for you to "show and tell" something you've learned about Python recently, no matter how small. We all use Python, therefore, we are always learning something new about Python that we can tell others. Please see the parking instructions on the BCC website. A wide variety of possibilities for the after-meeting are within steps of BCC.
