TriPython September 2018 Meeting: Tracking State And Detecting Events In CircuitPython: Debouncing The World With Software

Josh Johnson presents: "In building novel human/computer interaction devices using CircuitPython, a fork/port of MicroPython for the Adafruit M0 and M4 series development boards, I had a lot of state and state changes to work with. In this talk, I'll be exploring what state is, and how to use familiar Python constructs available to us in Micro/CircuitPython to model it, track it, and respond to changes. We'll cover a common task in electronics projects, button debouncing, but also explore a pattern we can extend to any sort of input, and use to cover general state tracking. It's essentially the fundamentals of what UI frameworks do in desktop environments. We get the opportunity to build what we need from scratch due to the limitations of our platform. The audience is people who basically know basic Python. :) No prior experience with microcontrollers or electronics required. We'll construct a simple demo circuit and control an RGB led. In the talk we'll walk through the basic construction and then dig into the code. Feel free to bring a laptop and a CircuitPlayground Express or other compatible board to mess around with the concepts during the talk!" Extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don't need to be pre-announced. Park in the municipal deck on the other side of the Arts Council across W. Morgan St. The after-meeting will be around the corner at Bull McCabe's Irish Pub. Come join us for a fun and informative evening.

Canceled: Chapel Hill Project Night

On Wednesday evening around 9pm, Florence will still be pretty far out at sea, though the first bands will be whipping the coastal areas. I think it *might* be safe to have project night this week. However, UNC, and thereby RENCI, will be closed at 5pm on Wednesday. The building management company for RENCI has not yet decided whether to lock the doors yet or not, but there's a good chance of that happening and I want to give you as much advance notice as possible. Therefore, there will be no Chapel Hill Project Night this week. Sorry.

TriPython August 2018 Meeting: Guillotina: The full stack data framework

Guillotina is a new full-stack AsyncIO Resource API framework designed for large data sets. It has roots in Pyramid, inspirations from Django, out of the Plone community but completely AsyncIO. Learn about AsyncIO, when/why/how you can use it, how Guillotina is designed with it to manage large data sets, and how to use Guillotina with containers to develop, test and deliver your applications. The target audience are Python developers interested in AsyncIO, REST, Microservices and distributed computing. Some background knowledge in AsyncIO might be helpful as there will be demonstrations and we’ll go through AsyncIO code; however, we’ll keep things simple enough for any Python engineer to be able to follow. Our speaker, Nathan Van Gheem, has worked in Python open source web technologies for almost 10 years. He has been part of the Plone open source community for many years leading the Security, UI and framework teams. He is currently the maintainer of the Guillotina. Extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don't need to be pre-announced. Parking is at the City Center Deck, 429 S Wilmington Street, which is $1 per 30 minutes, and free after 7pm. The Annex adjoins the deck. Street parking is free after 5pm in downtown. An after-meeting location for food and beverage will be decided at the meeting.

TriPython July 2018 Meeting: Lighting Macro Photographs with CircuitPython

LED lighting rigs are expensive. Worse, they have little to no controls aside from on and off. Most are not dimmable and the only way to change color is to use gels (colored sheets of plastic). In this talk Stacy Morse will present how she used CircuitPython in conjunction with LEDs and microcontrollers to make a custom LED lighting rig. Macro photography is very small scale and the standard LED light arrays are too much for a given composition. LED arrays for photography are expensive and featureless. Use CircuitPython to control LEDs using microcontrollers to light macro photography. Our speaker, Stacy Morse, is a time traveling immortal who programs with Python and builds things that blink. She is a freelancer/contractor building web applications. This allows her to work on her personal Python project, a hand-held programmable LED array for lighting photographs. Stacy's talk will also be featured at PyCon Australia in late August. 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. Plenty of free parking is available in the RENCI parking deck. The meeting will be followed by our usual after-meeting at a nearby tavern for food and beverage. Come join us for a fun and informative evening.

TriPython June 2018 Meeting: How to Plan to Migrate to Python 3

Python 2 will no longer be supported past 2020, yet many organizations still haven't made the switch to Python 3. This talk by Philip Semanchuk is for anyone facing a 2-to-3 migration that they'd like to feel more confident about. Attendees will leave with the outline of a migration plan, some suggested focus areas, a knowledge of helpful tools, and links to resources they can use after the talk. Philip Semanchuk is a freelancer with over 25 years of experience, the last 10 of which have been principally in Python. He is the author and maintainer of the posix_ipc extension. He has spoken at TriPython multiple times and has also spoken at the Piedmont-Triad Python User Group, PyOhio, PyData, and PyCarolinas. Outside the office, Philip enjoys gardening, kayaking, and performing small theatrical roles. Inside the office, colleagues tend to object. Extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don't need to be pre-announced. Park in the municipal deck on the other side of the Arts Council across W. Morgan St. The after-meeting will be around the corner at Bull McCabe's Irish Pub. Come join us for a fun and informative evening.
