Montréal-Python 48: Incorrect jiujitsu - Call for speakers

Montreal Python - Mon, 08/25/2014 - 23:00

Pythonisthas from Montreal, it's time for us for our back to school special. We are coming back from our summer vacation and we are hosting our next meetup at the offices of our friends from Shopify on St-Laurent street on Tuesday September 23th at 6:30 pm.

We especially love to hear from new speakers. If you haven't given a talk at Montréal-Python before, a 5 or 10 minute lightning talk would be a great start, but we also have slots for 10 to 40 minutes talks!

It's a perfect opportunity if you would like to show us what you've discovered and created, especially if you are planning to present your talk at PyCon.

Don't forget, the call speakers for PyCon 2015 is ending on Sept, 15th

Some topic suggestions:
  • Give a beginner's introduction to a Python library you've been using!
  • Talk about a project you're working on!
  • Show us unit testing, continuous integration or Python documentation tools!
  • Tell us about a Python performance problem you've run into and how you solved it!
  • The standard Python library is full of amazing things. Have you learned how multiprocessing or threading or GUI programming works recently? Tell us about it!
  • Explain how to get started with Django in 5 minutes!

We're always looking out for 10 to 40 minutes talks, or a quick 5 minutes flash presentation. If you discovered or learned something that you find interesting, we'd love to help you let others learn about it! Send your proposals to mtlpyteam@googlegroups.com

Non-Linux FOSS: a Virtualized Cisco Infrastructure?

Linux Journal - Mon, 08/11/2014 - 13:32

We're all familiar with the idea of virtualized computers. Not only are they a great way to better utilize resources in a server room, but they also allow you to create and destroy servers in the blink of an eye. That's perfect for a lab or training environment. Unfortunately, it's always taken a rack of actual hardware to create a training lab for Cisco hardware. more>>

PyCon 2015: Call for Proposal is open !

Montreal Python - Sun, 08/10/2014 - 23:00

The PyCon organizers are thrilled to announce the opening of PyCon 2015's Call for Proposals for talks, tutorials, and posters! We've seen a lot of growth in response to our CFP over the years, and our program committee is expecting a ton of proposals this time around. In 2012, you put us to work with 374 talk proposals and followed up the next year with 458. For 2014, 107 more talk submissions came in, for a jump to 565. We'll be accepting proposals through September 15 for talks and tutorials, and posters are accepted through November 1.

We want everyone to be a part of making PyCon what it is, which is why we invite everyone to submit proposals, and we inviteeveryone to be a part of the program committee. It's your PyCon, not mine. Whether you started with Python yesterday or you've been writing it since the 90s, everyone has different experiences, different knowledge, and a different story to tell. This is why we aim to strike a balance between beginner, intermediate, and advanced talks. We want the entire community to level up as a result of PyCon.

I often hear people say, "but I don't have anything to talk about." Well, what do you do? Why do you do it? Why did you solve the problem this way instead of that way? Why do you continue to do this? It usually only takes a couple of questions to find a good talk out of someone. Many PyCon proposals started this way, and after some refining, they've become great PyCon talks.

Over the years, we've put together proposal resources and advice to help answer some common topics surrounding our CFP. We even put together a sample proposal and reviewed it for you. If you have any questions or tips that may help others, please email them to pycon-pc@python.org.

There are likely 95 talk slots to fill, assuming we keep the usual balance of 30/45 minute slots the same, and we'll have room for 32 tutorials. This makes for some steep competition given the potential to reach over 600 talk proposals, while seeing three to four times as many tutorial proposals as available slots. While proposals will be accepted through September 15, we encourage submissions as early as possible, allowing reviewers more time to assess and provide feedback which may prove beneficial as the various rounds of review begin.

As with all past PyCons, we continue to be an "everyone pays" event, run by volunteers. Financial Aid is available thanks to the Python Software Foundation and our generous sponsors, and applications will open September 1. If Financial Aid would make your trip a possibility, we encourage you to apply once it opens.

Here are some important dates to put on your calendar: September 1, 2014: Registration opens, Financial Aid opens September 15, 2014: Talk and tutorial proposals due November 1, 2014: Poster proposals due December 1, 2014: Talk and tutorial selections announced, Financial Aid grants for speakers awarded December 15, 2014: Poster selections announced, full conference schedule announced

The PyCon organizers are going to give you everything we have to create the best PyCon yet. In exchange, we need you to give us your best talk, tutorial, and poster proposals. We also need your help getting the word out there about this CFP. If there's someone you want to see speaking at PyCon - tell them! If there's a topic you want to hear about - tell us, and we'll try to get people involved.

Have a look at the PyCon 2015 website for me details: https://us.pycon.org/2015/

Linux Security Threats on the Rise

Every year, heck...every month, Linux is adopted by more companies and organizations as an important if not primary component of their enterprise platform. And the more serious the hardware platform, the more likely it is to be running Linux. 60% of servers, 70% of Web servers and 95% of all supercomputers are Linux-based! more>>
