A review of the events that took place this year, related to software engineering and architecture.
The conferences, talks, and events
These are some of the events I participated in:
(2 Apr 2016)
PROTOSEC2016 1: A technical conference about networking, protocols, security, and related topics.
(July 2016) EuroPython 2016: I attended several talks, trainings, workshops, and presented a talk.
(10 Sep 2016)
Python Córdoba meetup6: interesting meetup where I presented my talk at EuroPython and attended the sprints afterwards.
(14 Sep 2016)
ArqConfMeetup ¿Cómo es trabajar distribuido globalmente? Caso Open Stack 5: Hosted in the Red Hat’s offices in Buenos Aires, this talk was a very interesting one, on which I learned about the collaborative way of working of the Open Stack team, around the globe.
(17 Nov 2016) Python Barcelona meetup.
(9 Dec 2016) Barcelona Spark meetup 2
(22 Dec 2016) Python Barcelona December meetup 7: I presented my talk about clean code in Python (yes, again :-), and there were two other interesting talks. Mine was the first one of the evening. The second talk, was about
zc.buildout, an interesting tool for managing packages and environments in Python, which I first heard of at
PyconAr(Python Argentina group) 2012. The third and last talk, presented a project named
aiocache8: a cache system implemented in
asyncio, that supports multiple back-ends. The talk walked us through the code, its architecture, and some use cases with demos.
I started with a small contribution to the
coala project 3, and during
the EuroPython sprints I contributed to
aiohttp with a pull request.
I also enhanced my dot files, but that is still in beta.
A minor release of
Python3.5, but most importantly:
There were two releases of
Fedora, 24 and 25, and there were lots of
improvements and changes in the
Regarding information security, there were some issues in the Linux Kernel,
also in applications (such as dirty COW, etc.), and a massive DDoS attack that
stroke the Internet on October, due to
IoT devices being compromised.
What to look forward to for the new year
I still look forward for more contributions to open source, in particular with CPython.
More functional programming (Scala/Haskell maybe), low-level programming in C, and research in the field of
Keep on participating on technical conferences.
And a lot more.
