The EuroPython 2014 conference took place last week at the BCC Berlin (Alexanderstraße 11). As I attended Brighton Ruby on Monday, you will have to do without a summary of that day. Summarized are my favorite talks.

Tuesday July 22

For Hynek Schlawack’s (@hynek) The Sorry State of SSL talk I should refer to his blog post on the topic. If SSL (or TLS) interests you, this is a go-to resource.

Web Scraping in Python 101

Muhammad Yasoob Ullah Khalid (@yasoobkhalid) is (amongst other things) the creator of freepythontips, which is cool. And he’s very much into web scraping, a method to extract data from a website that does not have an API, or a helpful tool when we want to extract a LOT of data (like product info or job postings) – which we can not do through an API due to rate limiting. read more

Sunday I embarked on a crazy travel to Brighton, to attend Brighton Ruby ( @brightonruby) the day after – only to board the plane that would bring me from London back to Berlin little after the forlast talk. Naturally I summarized everything for your enjoyment.

May the Ruby be with you

Terence Lee (@Hone02) and Zachary Scott (@_zzak) turned Brighton Ruby in Star Wars Conf with their jedi do’s. This was one of those talks you need to experience, but I will try to summarize it a bit. Zachary, as a member of the ‘Ruby Order’ (Ruby Core) – archiving and documenting Ruby standard libraries – told how he teaches younglings in order to give back to the force. Talking weaknesses (heartbleed, Rails Security issues) in the trade routes, Heroku – employing padawan Terence – was mentioned as a member of the Trade Federation calling the Ruby Order for help. After a Skype session via the Holonet with Grand Master Matsumoto, Terence joined the Republic. One of the goals of the Ruby Order is said to create less dependency on the order. Teaching younglings himself, Terence now tries to improve the relationship with alliances in the Trade Federation. And we can apparently all help here. read more
