2024.05.19 - PyWeb-IL #105: May 2024 at ZenCity in Tel Aviv

Date and time: Monday, May 19, 2024 at 18:00

Location: ZenCity, Carlebach St 20 · Tel Aviv-Yafo

How Zencity grown from a single client in southern Israel to serving more than 130 million citizens On three continents - from the data perspective. We’ll talk about how we’ve started and the initial choices you need to make. And how we’re working on scaling a product from a single-digit number of clients to our current scale. About what happens when eventually the original setup doesn’t work anymore, new requirements appear, and the landscape changes. We’ll candidly discuss our stopgap measures and some of our missteps and wrong choices. We hope our experience will help others in their path.

In this talk we will see a new way of testing web frameworks which gives us the ability to treat endpoints as they where a simple functions, with this ability, we can catch simple exceptions and outputs without the web framework layer which gives us simplicity and observability. We will go over a case study of Django web framework. using this package

Author of Python Brain Teasers.

I'll present several pieces of Python code and will ask the audience to guess the output of each one. After each piece of code I'll show the output and explain why it is that way.

  • Zohar Arad: Going beyond MongoDB for your NoSQL purposes - There are quite a few new (read - next gen.) NoSQL DBs that fit use-cases usually filled by MongoDB, but with better scaling capabilities and less headaches (or different ones). So, the point is not to diss Mongo, but to show viable alternatives. Some examples are - ArangoDB, RethinkDB, FoundationDB, HyperDex and Elastic Search (there are many more but these come to mind at the moment).
