Most relevant trends in Pycon 2018
Python is a programming language that has strengthen its presence in Colombia’s corporate sphere thanks to its power and friendly syntax. For this reason, in different cities there have been communities created, in which, through monthly open meetings and national events, look for promoting the use of this language and establishing a local knowledge-base that strengthens trust, both for developers and companies, so that they see in Python a viable alternative for their projects.
One of the events organized by this community is Pycon Colombia 2018, held in Medellín. Let’s see some of the most relevant topics of this event:
Serverless apps were one of the most mentioned trends, since they allow for a significant optimization of the computing time needed to support an app, since only the necessary resources are used in execution times through the microservice scheme in platforms such as AWS Lambda, which is reflected in cost reduction and high system availability for customers.
Education played an important role during the development of the lectures of Pycon Colombia 2018, since they shared ways to improve knowledge communication to students with free tools such as Jupyter and My Binder, which allow the creation of online development and testing environments without personal computers restrictions and with great hardware features.
TalkScript2Media was presented, a package for Python based on open source libraries, which lets you create an alternative to current tools such as ARI to generate multimedia presentations with images and text files.
Undoubtedly, spaces such as Pycon Colombia 2018, brings tangible benefits for companies in the technology sector as they have the opportunity to find talents and learn about market trends. In turn, developers also obtain benefits such as being able to update themselves in new tools and generate a network of contacts that allows them to become known in the industry, build commercial alliances and especially keep the knowledge alive in a pleasant way and sustainable in time.
