PyCon2011 Proposal

So,  Warren and I submitted a proposal to do a talk on Evite’s service publisher.  It’s better known as Nudge.  In true Monty Python spirit, the name was taken from this sketch: Monty Python: Nudge Nudge So, Is your service a “goer,” know what I mean?  I’m kind of excited!  I hope we get picked.  It will be the first talk I’ve ever given!  The service publisher has made our lives easier and cleaner through templatizing/generalizing/abstracting the actual REST service from the service layer, and I’m hoping to be able to share it with other Pythonistas.  I don’t want to give away too much detail, otherwise there will be no need for my talk, but imagine mixing and matching items using list operations so you can easily swap, remove, add Endpoints (url + http method) to different ports making deployment supremely easier.  This separation of web service and actual service also allows the dev to focus solely on one part or the other making swapping web servers/frameworks (Tornado/Django whatever) and testing easier too!

    Hey Jessica:

    Is Nudge open source? Is it available for other pythonistas to use?

    Hey! Not just yet. We were on track to get it out, but got slammed with holiday traffic. I’m still planning that by the time PyCon is here (and I get a talk, wink wink nudge nudge) that it will be. Preferably it’ll be out way before though.

  3. Anna says:

    Glad you responded. The voters were unsure since if it’s not opensource, what would attendees be getting aside from a marketing speech. Success stories are good but aren’t often taken as talks. Success stories with ways the learnings can be applied by the attendees are better received.

    Glad you submitted the talk and I hope it gets accepted. (It’s got a much better chance of it now.)
