Talk Python to Me is a weekly podcast hosted by developer and
entrepreneur Michael Kennedy. We dive deep into the popular packages
and software developers, data scientists, and incredible hobbyists doing
amazing things with Python. If you're new to Python, you'll quickly learn
the ins and outs of the community by hearing from the leaders. And if
you've been Pythoning for years, you'll learn about
your favorite packages and the hot new ones coming out of open source.
Testing without dependencies, mocking in Python
We know our unit tests should be relatively independent from other parts of the system. For example, running a test shouldn't generally call a credit card possessing API and talk to a database when your goal is just to test the argument validation.
Python and ML at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)'s primary function is the construction and operation of planetary robotic spacecraft, though it also conducts Earth- orbit and astronomy missions. It is also responsible for operating NASA's Deep Space Network.
Dask as a Platform Service with Coiled
If you're into data science, you've probably heard about Dask. It's a package that feels like familiar APIs such as Numpy, Pandas, and Scikit-Learn. Yet it can scale that computation across CPU cores on your local machine all the way to distributed grid-based computing in large clusters.
Modern and fast APIs with FastAPI
As Python 3 has eclipsed the old constrains of Python 2 and web frameworks that adopted them, we have seen a big jump in new frameworks appearing on the scene taking full advantage of things like type hints, async and await, and more.
Web scraping, the 2020 edition
Web scraping is pulling the HTML of a website down and parsing useful data out of it. The use-cases for this type of functionality are endless. Have a bunch of data on governmental sites that are only listed online in HTML without a download? There's an API for that! Do you want to keep abreast of what your competitors are featuring on their site? There's an API for that. Need alerts for changes on a website, for example enrollment is now open at your college and you want to be first to get in and avoid the 8am Monday morning course slot? There's an API for that.
Git hook scripts are useful for identifying simple issues before committing your code. Hooks run on every commit to automatically point out issues in code such as trailing whitespace and debug statements. By pointing these issues out before code review, this allows a code reviewer to focus on the architecture of a change while not wasting time with trivial style nitpicks.
