Кiwi.com Brno-Moscow Python Meetup

On March 23, at 19:00, there is going to be a special event in Moscow — The Brno-Moscow Python Meetup sponsored by Kiwi.com.

Three Kiwi.com Python pros will visit Moscow to present their keynotes on this day.

Robert Kuska (GitHubTwitter), «Most of the time I work with pythons, if not, I read, travel, eat, or most likely sleep. I am afraid of snakes».

Feed your code to coala

So you already use linters for your codebase but it still feels like it’s not enough. You want to check for more things, and better, use your own checkers but you want it to be as easy as possible! Meet coala.io, it feeds on your code and makes it better at the same time. With (almost*) no cost.

Petr Joachim (GitHub, Twitter) , «Minimalist, father, developer»

Running Python in production

Exploring many ways of running Python in different production environments. Starting from ordinary self-hosted old-school scripts, through supervisor, and ending with docker. All of this with great examples.

Ondřej Veselý (LinkedIn, Twitter), «Python developer and data analyst. At Kiwi.com he deals with huge amounts of data to enable some machine learning applications to utilise his academic background. He’s also a co-founder of the plant identification startup, FlowerChecker».

Fully asynchronous queue solution with Kafka

Showcase: Let’s say we want to have an API endpoint which saves a data stream with a very variable flow to Postgresql. We’ll use a Kafka queue and various async modules like asyncio, aiokafka and aiopg with Python 3.6 syntax sugar. Based on a real-life scenario.

Also on the agenda:

  1. Python-game with valuable prizes.
  2. After-party with 200 litres of Czech beer.

Event starts at 19:00 at Serebryanicheskaya Embankment 29, Moscow.
