The engineer who changed the game
Play • 35 min

Today we’re sharing a full-length episode of Command Line Heroes from Season 6 for you to check out. We hand picked this episode for you to listen to.

Many of us grew up playing cartridge-based games. But there’s few who know the story behind how those cartridges came to be. And even fewer who know the story of the man behind them: Jerry Lawson. Before Jerry, a gaming console could only play one game. Jerry quite literally changed the game. This episode shares Jerry’s story of inventing the cartridge-based system for gaming consoles.

#217 Use your cloud SSD for fast, cross-process caching
Sponsored by Linode! pythonbytes.fm/linode Special guest: Ogi Moore Watch the live stream on YouTube. Michael #1: diskcache * via Ian Maurer * Python disk-backed cache (Django-compatible). Faster than Redis and Memcached. Pure-Python. * The cloud-based computing of 2020 puts a premium on memory. Gigabytes of empty space is left on disks as processes vie for memory. * Among these processes is Memcached (and sometimes Redis) which is used as a cache. * Wouldn't it be nice to leverage empty disk space for caching? * Features: * Pure-Python * Fully Documented * Benchmark comparisons (alternatives, Django cache backends) * 100% test coverage * Hours of stress testing * Performance matters * Django compatible API * Thread-safe and process-safe * Supports multiple eviction policies (LRU and LFU included) * Keys support "tag" metadata and eviction * Developed on Python 3.8 * Tested on CPython 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8 * Tested on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows * Tested using Travis CI and AppVeyor CI Brian #2: TOML is 1.0.0 now. * What does that mean for Python? * Hopefully, some kind of toml parser will make it into Python core. * Any Python access to 1.0.0? Mixed * Implementations and TOML version support page lists: * pytomlpp supports 1.0.0-rc.3, which is a wrapper around C++ tomlplusplus, which does support 1.0.0. Confusing * tomlkit supports 1.0.0-rc.1, so that’s promising * toml supports 0.5.0, great name. It’d be cool if it would support 1.0.0 * What’s different between 0.5.0 and 1.0.0? * Unless I’m mistaken, not much: CHANGELOG * 1.0.0-rc1 * Leading zeroes in exponent parts of floats are permitted. * Allow raw tab characters in basic strings and multi-line basic strings. * Allow heterogenous values in arrays. * Other than that, lots of “Clarify …”, which I’m not sure how those all affect implementation. * I’d love to hear more from people who know more about this Ogi #3: pyqtgraph * pyqtgraph - plotting library, for when you need fast/interactive plots * Uses qt5 (and soon qt6) bindings to generate plots within Qt applications * Fills a niche role, want easy mouse interactivity, running locally on a machine * Often used in engineering/scientific applications when looking at a lot of data, and wanting interactivity Michael #4: Parler + Python = Insurrection in public * via Jim Kring and Mark Little * According to Wikipedia: Parler (/ˈpɑːrlər/) is an American alt-tech microblogging and social networking service. Parler has a significant user base of Donald Trump supporters, conservatives, conspiracy theorists, and right-wing extremists. * ArsTechnica article send in by Mark Little * Ars: Parler’s amateur coding could come back to haunt Capitol Hill rioters * Coding mess * A key reason for her success: Parler’s site was a mess. Its public API used no authentication. * When users deleted their posts, the site failed to remove the content and instead only added a delete flag to it. * Oh, and each post carried a numerical ID that was incremented from the ID of the most recently published one. * Another amateur mistake was Parler’s failure to scrub geolocations from images and videos posted online. * Some 80 terabytes of posts, 1M videos, many already deleted, preserved for posterity. * Catalog and Python pointed out by Shaun King. * See the catalog (maybe, it’s the ugly side of people). * The gist: https://gist.github.com/kylemcdonald/d8884da1a82ef50754ee49e0b6561071 * Partially back online with Russian hosting service? Brian #5: Best-of Web Development with Python * Suggested by Douglas Nichols * Cool list with nice icons * Covers * Frameworks, HTTP Clients, Servers * Auth tools, HTML Processing, URL utilities * OpenAPI, GraphQL, Websocket * RPC, Serverless, Content Management * Web Testing, Web Forms, Markdown * Third-party APIs * Email, Web Scraping & Crawling, Monitoring * Admin UI * API Proxies * Flask/FastAPI/Pyramid/Django Utilities * Nice to see lots of FastAPI projects: * fastapi-sqlalchemy - Adds simple SQLAlchemy support to FastAPI. * fastapi-plugins - FastAPI framework plugins. * fastapi_contrib - Opinionated set of utilities on top of FastAPI. * starlette_exporter - Prometheus exporter for Starlette and FastAPI. * fastapi-utils - Reusable utilities for FastAPI. * fastapi-code-generator - This code generator creates FastAPI app from an.. * slowapi - A rate limiter for Starlette and FastAPI. * fastapi-versioning - api versioning for fastapi web applications. * fastapi-react - Cookiecutter Template for FastAPI + React Projects.
