Suraj in his talk

We all complain about doing the repeatative tasks in our day to day lives. We should definitely try making our lives easier by automating them. In this talk Suraj explained how he have automated his task of social media volunteering in PyCon India 2016, by writing a simple python script to tweet about the talks at regular intervals of around 2 hours. Here is the script by Suraj.

Lot of project ideas came from the attendees itself. Many of them also shared few of their automation ideas.

Writing unit tests for any Python Script - Sudhir Verma

Sudhir in unit test talk

Unit testing is considered an essential part of software development. Through unit testing, we can evaluate each code component, find out how well it performs, and determine how well it reacts to valid or invalid input. A regression suite of unit tests is also an excellent way of detecting unexpected changes in a code base caused by refactoring or writing new code.

Sudhir explained how he uses unit tests for his projects.

Static v/s Dynamically typed languages - Ganesh Kadam

Me in my lightning talk

This was just a lightning talk about static v/s dynamically typed language. I just spoke briefly on this topic, with respect to the blog I have read on Hacker News that Chandan has asked us to read. This blog was about the ASCIINEMA application that records the sessions on your bash shell and uploads it to their website, so that it can be used to share. ASCIINEMA was ported back to Python from Golang. We just discussed how we should choose the apporpirate programming languages depending on our requirements. It was a good learning experience.
