One day of miniconf, two days of conference, two talks and two days of sprints later and I am exhausted!
Some of the highlights for me, in no particular order:
- The Django core developer panel discussion at the DjangoCon AU miniconf – intelligent, insightful, interesting
- Lex Hider’s lightning talk on interfacing PANDAS to Django: Pandas loves ponies (and not just for the name!)
- Nick Coghlan’s overview of the Python Packaging Authority
- Jacob Kaplan-Moss’s walkthrough of the OWASP Top 10 and how well the Pyramid, Flask and Django frameworks help with web security
- Simon Knight’s talk on large scale networks: using yEd, networkx, DS3, Mako, Netkit and TextFSM to automate network configuration
- Simon Meers’ lightning talk on Fitocracy and EatThisMuch, as well as the early-morning runs with Simon and others
- The talk and follow-up discussions about Growing open source seeds by Kenneth Reitz
- Richard Jones simultaneously appalling, amusing and educating us with “Don’t do this!”
- Screenshots of Turbo Pascal, a great overview of the current state of Tk and the launch of Cricket, a GUI test runner tool, by Russell Keith-Magee
- python-nation (don’t install it)
- The hallway and sprint conversations
- Lark Distillery whisky! Thanks to whoever organised the night
It was another brilliant conference. Thanks to Chris and the other organisers for a fantastic effort (again).
See you in Brisbane for PyCon AU 2014.
