    Where

    What

    Ever want to mess around with network packets but the thought of writing a kernel module or figuring out tcpdump seem too daunting? Now you can! And from the comfort of everyone's favorite language! Using Python, we can take packet inspection, logging, and firewalling to a new level that's not easily possible with existing tooling.

    Erik Stephens from Orvant will walk through the steps needed to get started inspecting packets from the Linux kernel the Python way. He'll point out some pitfalls to avoid along the way. He will also dive into a simple, but useful utility to help you report and block traffic from specific Linux programs.

    I try to get the room just down this hallway (to the left of the stairs) and down a few steps. Or just ask the hostess or waitress for the Python group. And yeah, that is google maps working inside Boulders on Broadway.

  4. Tempe Startup Weekend - 2013

    It was requested that I forward along an announcement about a Startup Weekend being held this month in Tempe.

    Announcement

    "There is a Tempe Startup Weekend event (http://tempe.startupweekend.org) coming up on June 21st at the new ASU AREA48 Formation Space on Mill Ave.

    If you are unfamiliar with these events, Startup Weekends are 54-hour events sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation where developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products and launch startups!"

    It's interesting to learn that ASU is opening what they call a "Formation Space" in downtown Tempe, on Mill: http://formationspace.com/

    The flyer below includes a 15% off discount code for DesertPy group members.

  7. Old Presentations Added

    We now have the old presentations uploaded to the DesertPy Presentations Page on the website. This includes Trevor's Mongo presentation, Jerry's RaspberryPi presentation, and my virtualenv and fabric presentations. These presentations, and the source, for some of them are also available on github: https://github.com/desertpy/presentations

    This reminds me of the licensing issues we are overlooking while using github. Github is only free for open source, and it is completely my intent to share all of our website and presentation materials under a permissive open source license. I am partial to the three clause MIT/BSD style licenses and that's the route we'll probably follow. We will also need to make sure we get contributors to agree as well. We will formalize this down the road.

  8. DesertPy - The Phoenix Area Python User Community

    Welcome to the DesertPy website. This is the online home of Phoenix area Python users. In an effort to bring together Phoenix area Pythonistas the group maintains several online resources including the DesertPy Meetup Group, @desertpy on twitter, DesertPy on Github, the DesertPy Google+ Community, and a Google groups mail list.

    For now, the DesertPy Github group contains the source for this website, sources for some of the presentations given at group meetings, as well as providing hosting for both the statically generated website and presentations using Github Pages
