    Heddleston.jpgKate Heddleston (San Francisco) - software engineer in startup Shift Technologies(a trading platform for buying and selling used cars), where she deals with python projects, founder and CEO at Opsolutely (a platform that helps engineering teams deploy infrastructure in the cloud). Keith will give a talk on Technical Debt and Python.

    pushtaev.jpgThe developer in Mail.Ru Vadim Pushtaev will tell how they write unit tests in the Search. From trifles: how to name, what is the structure of each test, etc., to big questions: how are things with TDD, how to get wet, how to deal with external systems like databases, how they live with fixtures, why you need to test private methods and the like .

    borisov.jpgPython has excellent capabilities for integration with C-language code. This allows you to optimize performance-critical functions at low cost, while maintaining flexibility. Sergey Borisov, technical development manager at DomKlik, will conduct a “Cython - C programming for people” workshop, which will show what tools you can use to solve such problems, and write an asynchronous client with a simple protocol together with the participants of the workshop. Developer "Alice" from Yandex Marina Kamalova

    kamalova.jpgwill tell from which python components you can create a text chat bot, what happens from the moment you receive a custom message to the moment you receive a response from the bot (NLU, NLG, ML classifiers), how to adapt the bot for different messengers and not only messengers, as well as how to increase the fault tolerance of the bot on the example of the Telegram API.

    davydov.jpgIn the past, data scientist and machine learning engineer at EasyTen and University College London, now Vitaly Davydov , CEO at Poteha Developers, will give an example of Serverless microservice on Python in the report. After a small theoretical part, Vitaly in live mode will deploy the simplest service on AWS Lambda and test it.

    kuzmin.jpgDevelopment Director at DomClick, a teacher of industrial programming courses and the theory of programming languages ​​at MIPT, Alexey Kuzmin, will tell about the strengths and weaknesses of asynchronous programming, show how this mechanism is arranged inside Python. Will review several useful libraries and tools. In the end, talk about how to properly measure and debug asynchronous code.

    hodakov.jpgTech. Lead in Avito Dmitry Khodakovtells about typical problems and pitfalls when building a loaded microservice framework; about profiling asynchronous applications; the fundamental differences between the asynchronous tornado and aiohttp; and hold an honest comparison of tornado vs aiohttp in conditions close to combat. The report will be useful to experienced Python developers who deal with asynchronous and microservices that are faced with the problems of scaling and debugging asynchronous applications.

    whate.jpgSenior software engineer at Engineers Gate Donald Whyte(London) will give a talk "Engineers Gate High Performance Data Processing in Python". "This talk explains how to use the volume of data and data quickly. We show an example dataset being processed using numpy / pandas. "We’ve been able to meet these requirements for several times to seconds."

    menshikov.jpgPython is not only about web and asynchrony. Python-developer in the Laboratory of Design of Intelligent Systems Alexander Menshikov(Komsomolsk-on-Amur) will hold a master class "Robotics with Python and ROS". Together with the participants, Alexander will make out how, from a simple data exchange module, you can come to a prototype autonomous turret that can search for a target and notify the status of the shot without the operator’s help. Evgeny Slezko (Moscow),

    slezko.jpgTechnical Director at Marilyn System, will share his experience in implementing a service-oriented architecture in a system that has been developed in Python for more than 5 years. Why do you need it? What problems solves, and what creates? What is worth taking care at the beginning? What is the profit from the point of view of both the engineer and the management of development?

    kataev.jpgEvery day we work with relational databases: change objects, roll up migrations, create indexes. But sometimes you need to aggregate data across several fields, or you want to try out the latest capabilities of relational databases, for example, the Union operator. Django or PeeWee can only express simple things, so you have to use raw SQL. But the SQLAlchemy library can express any complex query in pure Python. This allows you to write clear code and refactor it with ease. The developer at Denis Kataev (Yekaterinburg) will explain with examples how SQLAlchemy works from the inside, how it simplifies the work and when it is worth using it (the spoiler is always).

    patrushev.jpgEveryone who is engaged in professional development on anything, tries to make their daily activities more comfortable. This is clearly seen in the number of tools that are available to developers: their arsenal is growing every year. At the same time, as elsewhere, there is no silver bullet: to achieve the desired, you have to dig them all for a long time, select the right combination of tools for yourself and “be friends” with each other. CTO in Spherical Anton Patrushev (Yekaterinburg) will share an excellent combination of tools that they found in Spherical almost from the very beginning. Anton will talk about this, touching upon key aspects and nuances of various mechanisms of their environment.

    mazaev.jpgPython-developer in TsIAN Maxim MazaevHe will talk about the principles of development of microservices in CIAN and how they are struggling with the typical problems of their support - versioning and API consistency. How to change the API without breaking anything. How to control consistency through the CI system. Maxim will also consider issues of code generation and swagger-schemes.

    soldatenko.jpgUsually, all participants in sports programming use C / C ++ / Java, but in the last decade, a growing number of participants use Python. Toptal Python-developer Andrei Soldatenko(Kiev) will tell you how to start participating in competitions using Python. Andrei will show how to motivate yourself in practice, how to determine the class of the problem and how to solve it. It will tell you how to master the art of testing, and also explain how to quickly assess the complexity of your solution without a lot of evidence and mathematics in order to get the desired AC (Accepted).

    koshelev.jpgDocker has become the de facto standard for the distribution and deployment of applications across all platforms. One of the tasks that confronts the developer when using Docker: how to make assembly quick and effective. Alas, python libraries are still often distributed as source code, and building a project requires some system dependencies. After a successful build, these dependencies often remain in the image and increase its size, although in fact they are no longer needed. Python-developer at Yandex Alexander Koshelev will tell you how they solved this problem: build images without build dependencies. Images as a result turn out more lightweight and, as a result, deplolyatsya faster, and therefore reach users more quickly.

    malyh.jpgResearchers in the laboratory of neural systems and deep learningMIPT Valentin Malykh and Alexey Lymar will hold a workshop "DeepPavlov: open-source python library for dialog systems". At the workshop, the guys will teach how to make your chat bot, show you how to work with data for learning the interactive system and how to use the ready-made models available in the DeepPavlov library.

    karpovich.jpgSergey Karpovich and Vadim Berezkin from will tell you how to make a user-friendly search engine: about the available tools and how to customize usability, quality and relevance of internal search using the example of Elasticsearch and Python. The report will be useful to developers of search engines for sites and portals.
