Jupyter Notebook: What’s in it for You
Emma's Bistro Cafe

This month our visiting speaker, Douglas Starnes, hails from sunny, exotic Memphis and is going to help us understand why Jupyter Notebooks might be useful for YOU:

Different types of development need different tools. Data science does not always lend itself to the edit and run style of development most of us are familiar with. Inspired by IPython, Jupyter notebook fills this need by providing an interactive computing environment in which data scientists can experiment and iterate quickly. Also, it's browser based so it is just as easy to use it on a local machine as it is remotely. Jupyter notebook also archives each session which can be shared with others enabling reproducible experiments. And don't let the name, IPython fool you, it's for more than just Python. Jupyter notebook supports over 40 languages including R, Julia and Scala.

Douglas Starnes is a polyglot ninja and tech community influencer in the Memphis area making stuff that works on more than just the web. He specializes in the fields of mobile, data science and machine learning. Douglas is a co-director of the Memphis Python User Group and a board member of the Memphis .NET User Group. He is a frequent conference speaker who has delivered more than 30 featured presentations at more than 20 conferences over the past 7 years in a variety of citiies across the southeast United States. In addition, Douglas is a Pluralsight author and active participant in local user groups. He has also served as an organizer for PyTennessee, PyOhio and TechCampMemphis. Outside of being a geek Douglas is a trained composer, aspiring triathlete and avid Lego collector.

Logging beyond /dev/null -- ELK Stack for Log Visualization and Analysis
Emma's Bistro Cafe

This month, Eventbrite's Will Gaggioli shares his knowledge with us, and does so in the sardonic way only he can:

In this exhilarating tale Will shall demonstrate the thrilling ways in which one can use application logs to understand client usage patterns, analyze application performance metrics, and for general debugging. We begin by setting up a simple ELK stack in a docker environment and discuss the options for configuration and deployment. We shall dive into the visualization capabilities of Kibana as applied to some demonstration web application logs. Finally, we set up a simple flask application and discuss means of incorporating logging into your application for debugging, monitoring, and performance analysis. Technologies we discuss will include (but not be limited to) Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana, Filebeat, Structlog, Python logging, Docker, and Flask.

Lightning Round: Python Packages!
Emma's Bistro Cafe

This month we're going to have multiple speakers, each giving a quick talk about a lesser-known Python package. Here's a quick list of our speakers and the packages they'll be discussing:

• Jurnell Cockhren (https://github.com/mewwts/addict)

• Steve Wilcox (https://github.com/Kozea/WeasyPrint)

• Anthony Fox (https://github.com/tomchristie/apistar

• Max Collins-Shenfield (https://docs.python.org/3/library/functools.html#functools.singledispatch

• Josh Stephens (https://github.com/r0x0r/pywebview)

Come join us, and maybe learn about your new favorite package!


And many thanks to our sponsor this month: SmileDirectClub!

SmileDirectClub was founded on a simple belief: everyone deserves a smile they love. We are the first digital brand for your smile. The company was built upon a realization that recent trends in 3D printing and telehealth could bring about disruptive change to the invisible aligner market. By leveraging proprietary cutting-edge technology, we’re helping customers avoid office visits and cutting their costs by up to 70 percent because people shouldn’t have to pay a small fortune for a better smile.

SmileDirectClub is backed by Camelot Venture Group, a private investment group that has been pioneering the direct-to-consumer industry since the early ‘90s, particularly in highly regulated industries. If you’ve heard of 1-800-CONTACTS, Quicken Loans, HearingPlanet, DiabetesCareClub or SongbirdHearing, then you’ve heard of Camelot. Their hands-on approach, extensive networking, and operational expertise ensures their portfolio companies reach their potential.

(and if that sounds interesting to you, I happen to know that SmileDirectClub is hiring, so please get in touch if you're interested!)

Interactive Python Environments: IPython, Jupyter, and Beaker, Oh My!
Emma's Bistro Cafe

This month, Dr. Aliya Gifford, one of our organizers and staff scientist in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, will be exploring the basics of Jupyter and Beaker - two separate web-based interactive computational environments which can contain code, text, mathematics, plots, and rich media. Starting with the basics, we’ll investigate some of the useful features of both tools, and explore a simple project.

We're still looking for a sponsor for this month's meetup, so if you have a job opening you'd like to talk to the group about, or a product you'd like to discuss, please contact us!

You and I and the PyNash API
Emma's Bistro Cafe

This month we're in for a treat! Jason Myers of PyNash, PyTennessee, Essential SQLAlchemy, and DataCamp fame is going to throw himself before the live-coding gods and hope that everything goes according to plan. It'll be a PyNash to remember, for sure:

Don't miss the music and coding event of the summer! Join me for a live coding experience guaranteed to blow your mind or at least blow up horribly. Only the programming gods know which one it will be. We're going to build an API, CLI and deploy it to the CLOUDS while learning about the history of PyNash! Part performance art and part "how do I exit vim" it's a can't miss event.

If you're interested in sponsoring this month's meeting, please don't hesitate to contact us and let us know!

Test-Driven API Development with Django REST Framework
Emma's Bistro Cafe

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/

Train your Python to play Sudoku and How to use Python in the browser
Emma's Bistro Cafe

This month we have two speakers! First up will be Max Shenfield telling us how we can use Python in our browsers:

Writing Python in the browser is a joyful experience for the intrepid Pythonista! We'll walk through a living TodoMVC (http://todomvc.com/) implementation written in Python, and learn the best Python in the browser options for your project.

And once we're spoiled with Python in the browser, James Totorelli will teach us how to "train" a Python program to play Sudoku:

This talk will be a discussion about Constraint Satisfaction Problems (CSPs) and how application of simple heuristics can greatly impact the efficiency of the solution. A Sudoku puzzle is treated as a CSP and two solutions - one with a heuristic and one without - are applied and compared to demonstrate performance improvements.

* Note: This meetup still doesn't have a sponsor. If you or your company would like to sponsor this meeting, please send us an email at pynash.organizers@gmail.com
