Pykonik #45 Tech Talks Meetup
We invite you for the next meetup!
Pykonik is a community of those using, learning or curious of Python. Our meeting details can also be found on our website, where you can sign up to give a talk at the next meeting: http://pykonik.org/45/.
This time we will host the following talks:
- [ENG] Aleksander Kawala - Developer performance best practices
This talk aims to gather some practices that can boost your performance at work. Because tests are important part of implementing difficult business logic (especially on backend) second part covers some less known approaches to testing in Python. Agenda: Day to day work: PRs, Commits, WTDD, TDD Tests: Vcrpy, Hypothesis, Caplog, DB speedup
- [ENG] Łukasz Taczuk - unicode.decode()
So you just encoded your string with "user_input.encode('utf8')" and all you got was… a UnicodeDecodeError?!? Now you’re left wondering why your interpreter was drunk the whole time! Or was it? Maybe there IS a method in this madness? (spoiler: Nope! Only if you squint :) If you’re still struggling to understand Unicode in Python, let me decode this properly for you once and for all!
...and as always - lightning talks - ~5 minutes talks that can be given by anyone on any topic. Talk to us either online or during the event if you want to give one!
