Six Feet Up team members Calvin Hendryx-Parker, Clayton Parker and David Blewett traveled to Ohio State University in Columbus for the 3rd PyOhio conference last weekend. This year's event continued the momentum from earlier conferences. Python users from the Midwest gathered to learn new strategies, maximize Python capabilities and wrap up with two days of development sprints. The location of the event was a great choice, making use of OSU's excellent Ohio Union.
The quality of the talks was outstanding, while the open-space area saw increased usage from last year. The atmosphere generated practical and enthusiastic discussions among conference goers who readily shared their experiences using Python.
Some of the talks that we found especially interesting included:
- Micro-optimization Strategies for Python by Nick Bastin
- Genetic Programming in Python by Eric Floehr
- Log Analysis with Python by Scott McCarty
- Wrangling the bits, standardizing how apps get built by Rick Harding
- PyPy and Unladen-Swallow: Making your Python Fast by Alex Gaynor
Six Feet Up CTO Calvin Hendryx-Parker presented a well-attended talk: Controlling UNIX Processes using Supervisor. Our lead developer Clayton Parker presented Code With Style: Your Code Should Be As Fashionable As It Is Functional.
Thanks again to all of the PyOhio Volunteers. Their hard work and passion for Python made the conference successful, enjoyable and informative. I look forward to seeing everyone next year!
