This talk will cover key considerations for replacing a bespoke or completely manual process for handling database migrations with a new process built around Alembic or Django migrations. Jeff will also show a few specific tricks he has collected for Alembic to support his current project. The talk will not replace the Alembic or Django tutorials.
Jeff Trawick has been learning and enjoying Python for about eight years, using it to develop web applications, web scrapers, and other software. He had earlier mini-careers working on networking software for IBM mainframes and as a major contributor to Apache HTTP Server while working for IBM, Sun, Oracle, and as a consultant. He is employed by American Efficient, an energy-related company in Durham.
Extemporaneous “lightning talks” of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don’t need to be pre-announced. Lightning talks are for you to “show and tell” something you’ve learned about Python recently, no matter how small. We all use Python, therefore, we are always learning something new about Python that we can tell others. Plenty of free parking is available in the RENCI parking deck. The meeting will be followed by our usual after-meeting at a nearby tavern for food and beverage. Come join us for a fun and informative evening.
