South East Linux Fest, Python Represent


I'll be presenting at South East Linux Fest (SELF) 2014. According to the final schedule, it is tomorrow, Friday the 20th at 4PM. Right after that will be a BOF in that same room. Come by and talk *nix and Python.

Last year Python was pretty much absent from the conference. Yet it is quite focused on security, and Python is just the right tool for that kind of stuff.


That's one project among many I'll be talking about, bringing computing education to people who are usually left without.

Keep an eye on my twitter account and this blog for details. The core of the talk is about Brython.


Apparently, videos of talks will be available after the conference.

Slowing down time

Is there a machine?

Quite frankly, that's the only way I'll be able to get back into my old posting habits, if I can slow down time...

So, just briefly, tomorrow is project night in Winston Salem:

James is bringing a Parallela. Markus will probably have a Beaglebone black. And I'll have a Raspberry Pi. Perhaps some of that + duct tape and I can build a time lapse machine! (Nothing nefarious, in reality, just a security cam to keep an eye on the entrance, so visitors to the project night dont have to wait to long for somebody to come and open the door...)

Micro Python

While on the subject of embedded devices, what do you all think of micro python?
