PEP 498: The Monologue
Mariatta Wijaya (@mariatta)
Python 3.6 was released in December 2016, and it includes 16 new PEPs! In this talk, we will focus on PEP 498 - Literal String Interpolation, affectionately known as f-strings. Let's learn about f-strings. See some examples, and know the gotchas. You'll want to upgrade to Python 3.6 just for this!
High Fidelity Web Crawling in Python
Josh Weissbock (@joshweissbock)
Python modules such as Requests make it easy for Python to pull HTML from a webpage which you can feed to your parsing function. What becomes difficult is converting that process into an autonomous process to crawl webpages without needing regular supervision. This talk covers the lessons learns and solutions I've found in order to create high fidelity autonomous web crawling scripts in Python.
