Zendesk is going to tell us about how they use python.
As an appetizer, David Niergarth will walk through a simple Python script that caches data pulled from the network through a named pipe (FIFO). Useful for testing filter pipelines without having to repeatedly pull your data.
Intermission kinda from David Huttleston: ZNOC uses Python; here’s how we do it and what we are looking forward to in the future. Watch for jobs!
The main event: Our code chef, Alex Recker, will whip up a delicious scalable python webapp live. In front of your eyes, he will mix a locally-sourced python webapp with an AWS autoscale group and a load balancer then bake it in an terraform oven. Served and delicious!
