Web Development

On 2015-05-03

Django is one of the most popular web frameworks. It's a great option if you want to use Python to build web apps. Start with the official Django poll tutorial or the Django Girls blog tutorial. Two Scoops of Django: Best Practices For Django 1.8 was co-written by a PyLady - don't hesitate to ask for a free copy if you can't afford it.

Your Django Story: Meet Lacey Williams Henschel

By anna-oz on 2015-05-04

This is a post in our Your Django Story series where we highlight awesome ladies who work with Django. Read more about it here.

Lacey is a Python/Django developer with the University of Texas at Austin, but she telecommutes from Portland, Oregon. She’s currently working on organizing the first Django Girls workshop in Portland, and in the meantime is getting to know her fellow PyLadies in the Pacific Northwest. You can reach her on Twitter @laceynwilliams.


How did your story with code start?

When I was in grad school pursuing a master’s in English, I took a workshop in TEI, an XML language used to represent manuscripts and archival texts in a digital form. I wound up finishing my degree and getting a Digital Humanities certificate along the way, then applying to the University of Texas’s Software Developer Training program, which is like a dev bootcamp where they pay to teach you Python, Django, and a mainframe language (UT Austin is still on a mainframe, but we’re working on moving off!)

Decomposing Asynchronous Workers in Ruby

On 2015-05-04


I'm a proponent of building small, composable pieces over one large piece that does many things. The large piece usually works well, but it eliminates the possiblity of using its components to do something new and unforeseen. Smaller pieces leave open the potential for a system that truly is greater than the sum of its parts. If we take a look at some common pieces of our systems, we can potentially come away with new ways to compose the same functionality with multiple smaller pieces.

Take asynchronous workers, for example. A lot of times, we have work that we want to get done asynchronously. In Ruby, using Redis through Sidekiq is a great way to do this. Sidekiq is simple to work with, hides the implementation details of Redis, and does a great job managing your worker processes. If we wanted to import data from some type of file as a background process, we could write a Sidekiq worker that looks like this:

Clean up your commits for a pull request

On 2015-05-06

When you contribute to an Open Source project through a pull request, the maintainer often wants you to clean up your commits. I will show you what that means and why git rebase is your command of choice here.

So let's say you have made this pull request with a super amazing feature for an Open Source project and you're waiting for the maintainer's feedback. In a perfect world your request would be perfect too and it would get merged immediately to the project's core.

Reid Draper on property-based testing and test.check

On 2015-05-06


Late last year, Reid Draper came to 8th Light University to give a keynote presentation on property-based testing in Clojure. Reid is a software developer at Helium and the author of Clojure's test.check. He was kind enough to respond to some questions about this topic for our blog, and the unedited Q&A is reproduced below. For more from Reid, you can follow him on Twitter.

What is test.check, and how is it different than other automated testing tools?

search queries, webmaster tools

If you manage a website, you need a deep understanding of how users find your site and how your content appears on Google's search results.
