TriPython September 2017 Meeting: PyParsing: How To Process Text If You Hate Regular Expressions

Brian Fannin will speak and describes his talk as, "Like any person of sound mind, I hate using regular expressions. While writing an expression parser, I discovered the PyParsing library and was immediately in love. I'll walk through some examples of how you can use PyParsing to tame your text data. You may never use regex again!" Brian is the founder and captain of PirateGrunt LLC, a predictive modeling, training and software consultancy with a focus on the insurance industry. He has been an actuary for over twenty years and has worked in a number of roles all over the world. He loves data, data visualization, data architecture, data munging, data modeling, data analysis, data and also data. 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.

TriPython August 2017 Meeting: Code Reviews Using Art Critique Principles

Stacy Morse will reprise her PyCon Australia talk from earlier this month: Code reviews don't have to be a time consuming, morale zapping, arduous tasks. Not only can they catch bugs and errors but they can contribute in positive ways to the individual developer, the team, management and company as a whole. Art critiques have existed in academia for hundreds of years. The methodology of the critique has evolved to be time sensitive and productive, while keeping the enthusiasm of the student artist intact. The purpose of the art critique is to get peers and mentors to look at the work and raise any problems they may see. It's also time where people with more experience could contribute their knowledge in a helpful way. This process is about producing the best work, quickly and in a productive and constructive way. 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. 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 at Mission Valley).

TriPython July 2017 Meeting: Just What Is A Quality Engineer?

A great plurality of companies today, who deal with the delivery of software or providing software services should have a team responsible for checking the quality of their products before they get into their customers’ hands. This team, far too often, is comprised of a single person, usually labeled with the term “QA”, and is responsible for making sure that all known issues with the product are verified and that some level of testing is performed before it can be ‘shipped’ to customers. Not everyone really knows what happens during this phase, but it is well-known that someone, somehow, installs, configures and ‘tests’ all the facets and features of a product before it ‘goes out the door’. The stereotype is that somewhere in the building where you work, there is at least one person, “not suitable” to be a developer, who is relegated to pushing buttons and clicking elements on web ui elements to make sure that things work as advertised. These are the ‘button pushers’. If you have some of this species inhabiting your work environment, good for you. But if you really want to deliver quality with your products, then what you need is a Quality Engineer, a rare hybrid species that merges software development, forensics, DEVOPS and creativity skills into a super being. Og Maciel presents. Og is a Senior Manager of Quality Engineering for the Red Hat Satellite team. He has spent the last 5+ years building a team of black belt quality engineers responsible for the automation of complex systems and delivering quality products through the use of continuous delivery of processes. He is also a podcaster, a dad, and an avid reader. 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 2017 Meeting: HoneyPy

This meeting will provide a light introduction to honeypots and their benefits, and highlight two projects HoneyPy and HoneyDB. Operating honeypot sensors on your internal network is a simple way to make your network “noisy” and can trip up malicious actors that have already penetrated your network. Also, leveraging data from honeypot sensors on the Internet can be a useful source of threat information. Are you leveraging honeypots in your organization? If not, why not? Adoption of these tools is likely about having simple easy to use interfaces and integrations into existing tools used by an organization. The speaker is Phillip Maddux, a Senior Solutions Engineer at Signal Sciences. Phillip has over 10 years of experience in information security, with the majority of that time focused on application security in the financial services sector. In his spare moments Philip converting ideas to code and committing them to Github. 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 meeting will be followed by our usual after-meeting at a nearby tavern for food and beverage.
