This will be the alpha version of my RubyConf AU 2019 talk.
Software development is the anticipation of a thousand dangers: regressions, edge-cases, exceptions, attacks, downtime, the list is endless. Drawing from a wide range of disciplines, we’ll build a simple model for quantifying danger, explore why the human brain is so bad at it, and examine some practical applications for our development processes. There will be at least one science.
Tom Soukup will take us through a demo of making a chat app using MeteorJS, and hopefully give us a peek at some more sophisticated use-cases.
Meteor is a framework that simplifies keeping multiple clients in sync. It's great for quick prototyping but can be used in production as a full stack solution with user auth and all! It's often used with the common front-end libraries like react/angular/vue, and can utilise graphql for the database.
Join us with a beer from Pom's downstairs, and kick-start your year with some interesting technologies and healthy discussions.
It has been a while so we are planning a social get together to sit around and catch up with our local Christchurch infosec friends.
I'll also be looking for topics for future meetings, so bring along your ideas.
Chances are this will be held in a central city location. I will update this closer to the night.
Our meetups are always first Tuesday of a month at the Catalyst IT office above Pomeroys Pub.
We usually have a talk about anything that relates to Python programming language. Some months we run team coding challenges (aka "dojos"). These will be announced beforehand.
If you have a question about Python on or are stuck with some Python project, feel free to bring it up at the meetup. There will be people around who will be happy to help.
Doors open at 5:30pm, talk starts at 6pm.
At the start and end of the meetup, an informal conversation takes place, usually over a pint of beer.
Do not hesitate to pass this information around to whomever you think may be interested to hear and discuss all things Python.
