It's widely accepted that learning any new programming language will improve your programming skills in general, but we don't often talk about how. This talk will cover some of the my takeaways after learning Go that have improved my Python and Java skills, as well as cover some bits about why Go is a great choice for those itching to learn a new language.

Processes in a cluster can require controlled access to shared resources, tracking available processes, and sharing state. Unfortunately most tools in this category are oriented around Java. In this talk I cover how to use Python to interact with Apache Zookeeper -- a fault-tolerant consistent data-store -- to write coordinated distributed fault-tolerant applications in Python.

The year 2040 is the year when people of color will be the majority in the United States, but minorities are vastly underrepresented in the most important part of the US economy, the tech sector. There's been a lot of discussion about the lack of diversity in Silicon Valley and the technology industry recently and, let's face it, the numbers are not good. But why does it even matter?

C++ brought exceptions to mainstream programming; Java goes further with checked exceptions. But are exceptions the one way to report all errors? Scala and Go suggest there is more than one kind of error, so there should be more than one kind of error reporting, and different responses to errors. I’ll show the Scala and Go approaches to the error problem, and how to apply this to Python. Read more.

Impostor syndrome -- the persistent belief that any minute everyone around you is going to figure out you're not at all qualified -- happens to a majority of the tech industry; nobody talks about it, because nobody wants to be the first to admit it. This talk confronts that feeling head-on, and addresses ways to readjust your perceptions of your accomplishments to accurately reflect reality. Read more.

There's a growing crowd of Python users who don't consider themselves beginners anymore. However some may notice behavior that's hard to explain. Why doesn't code behave like it should? Why doesn't "correct" code run correctly? We'll look at Python's memory model & best practices, addressing these issues directly. Let's empower attendees to write good code & not create these bugs to begin with! Read more.

As new data sets become available through municipal Open Data initiatives, how can these be leveraged to reveal insights and build services for communities? This talk shows Cascalog and Open Data from the City of Palo Alto to create a sample app. Some programming background is helpful, but the emphasis is on process: how to approach large-scale Open Data to build data products for a community.
