This last week I've been attending EuroPython over here in Firenze (or as we Americans know it, Florence), Italy. It's been a pretty amazing time, visiting the beautiful city, putting faces to names, and seeing some great presentations. More importantly, and the main reason for my trip, was the two talks that I delivered here this week.
The first was on Tuesday morning, titled "Building Scalable Web Apps". I tried to show how one might solve some problems building a real web app, so we built a little bit of a backend for a Twitter-like stream.
I gave a second talk on Wednesday morning, "Pitfalls of Continuous Deployment", which talks a little bit about the lessons we've learned during adoption of CD, as well as the value of integration and reporting systems
