Who saved The Onion, from being hacked by "Syrian Electronic Army"
Well, this isn't at all Python related (or even all that technical), but at The Onion, we recently had a little run-in with the "hackers" from the "Syrian Electronic Army", and could talk about some lessons learned from that, if there's any interest.
Hy: A Lisp that transforms itself into the ython AST.

Python Deployments at The Onion (and elsewhere)
Chris will cover various Python deployment strategies and technologies, ranging from the naïve (git pull) to the more robust (fabric, capistrano) to the "Enterprise" (Python native package deployments, etc).
In order to illustrate these different strategies and technologies, he will take examples from my past projects, and the constantly-evolving Onion deploy process.
