    Red Hat OpenShift - Enterprise Kubernetes for Microsoft Azure

    • What we'll do
    You MUST register here: http://bit.ly/2C4wQqr

    Containers have revolutionized the DevOps process, transforming how organizations build, ship, and run applications on any infrastructure.

    Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is an enterprise container application platform based on industry standards, Docker, and Kubernetes. Combined with the power of the Microsoft Cloud via Azure, organizations can accelerate moving existing applications to the cloud, speed the time-to-market of new products, and deliver more innovation to customers.

    In this workshop, we will discuss how containers solve many of the challenges for development and operations. We will show you how to start taking advantage of the cloud, without rewriting all of your existing applications. We will demonstrate how Microsoft and Red Hat combined can improve speed, scalability, security, innovation, and cost to your IT organization.

    Test-Driven API Development with Django REST Framework

    In addition to a brief PyTennessee 2018 recap (if people are interested) from Bill Israel, this month we have a very special "Lost Talk from PyTN 2018" from Kevin Harvey of axialHealthcare:

    The tools available in Django REST Framework allow rapid development of web APIs, and it's easy-to-use wrappers around Django and Python's testing toolkit make it easy to include a comprehensive test suite in any application. Some familiarity with Django itself will help, but this talk is aimed at those new the both Django REST Framework and testing in general.

    And a huge thank you to axialHealthcare for sponsoring this month's meetup! Checkout axial's current job openings here: https://axialhealthcare.com/about-us/careers/

  • Nashville VR Meetup

    • What we'll do
    Join us on the last Thursday of each month for Nashville's VR meetup! We are resurrecting the meetup and have found a generous new host for it: Vanderbilt's new center for innovation, "The Wond'ry" We will provide a few VR setups (Oculus Rift + Vive) and also encourage you to bring any projects of interest (including hardware, if applicable). This meetup is intended for anyone interested in virtual reality, from those who have never experienced it to full time developers. Our goal is to connect the community, foster networking, and pool our creativity to take VR to its full potential.
