This past Saturday I have attended to PyDay Galicia 2017. It has been a very interesting one-day conference, with 2 tracks (Basic and Professional). These are some of the talks I have attended to:
Clara Casas Castedo and Miguel Sánchez de León Peque talked about Python para MacGyvers. The idea of the talk is to show the versatility of Python applied to a series of problems, explained in several jupyter notebooks.
Miguel González gave an astounding talk, oddly named DÃ³nde estÃ¡ mi Ã±. He recapped the history of language encoding, ranging from Morse to UTF-8, and explained how do encoding and decoding works in Python 3. A 5-stars talk, very illustrative and entertaining.
José Juán Montes gave two talks. The first one, about Automatizacion de hogar con Home Assistant: a Python package that enables not only a dashboard but a fully-fledged automation system. The second one (Análisis y visualización de datos con Cubes y CubesViewer) was about one side project that enables an OLAP front-end and capabilities over SQL backends.
Yamila Moreno talked about Cicerón y las comunidades tecnológicas. The classic virtues revisited in order to boost diversity and inclusiveness in our programming communities. You should check the slides right now :-)
Inés Vazquez explained the goals and actions that Adalab is performing in order to increase the diversity in our society. In the Q&A after the talk, many attendees showed interest in the subject, commenting that there are no similar initiatives in Vigo.
Jose Corral gave a talk about the evolution of the technological stack in his company and a brief introduction to Kubernetes.
And after some lightning talks, and a couple of post-event beers, I should say that it has been a very refreshing one-day conference. Kudos to the organizers!
P.D: My lightning talk Docker images for Python is now available online!
