  • Everyday Design Patterns: Observer Pattern
    By: Aly Sivji
    Experience Level: Intermediate
    Length: 25 Minutes

    The Observer Pattern enables us to design event-driven systems using loosely coupled components. In this talk, we will learn how, when, and why to use this pattern; we will explore how popular PyPI packages use the pattern; and, we will design a decorator-based Observer to process GitHub events.

  • Every Way SpotHero Uses Python
    By: James Lamb
    Experience Level: Novice
    Length: 30 Minutes

    We love Python at SpotHero. In this talk, attendees will learn all the ways that SpotHero uses Python. Libraries, web services, machine learning, data processing, and more! After an overview of these use cases, the talk concludes with a set of practical suggestions for effective use of Python in different settings.

    The primary goal of the talk is to expand attendees' imaginations around the wide range of use cases that Python can be a good fit for in a consumer-facing company.
