EuroPython 2015 - Python and Internet of Things

I've been working in area of IoT for quite some time, and at Azoi we use Python extensively. Looking at usage of Python on micro-controller, I realised that it's not used as much as in other areas. I've had very good experience going with Python. I've got some exposure with micro controller and think it assists you to rapidly build prototype involving hardware.

I applied for a talk on Internet of Things with Python to spread some awareness around this and it was selected along with another talk by my colleague Bhaumik Shukla and one more by Hitul Mistry. Out of all all submissions, there were total 4 selection out of which 3 were from my team at Azoi. It was also my first major talk at a large conference like EuroPython. I was both nervous and excited as the same time and since I was going to Bilbao, Spain for conference, I thought its a great opportunity to explore other cities as well :-)

Bhaumik's topic was "Python for Cloud Services and Infrastructure Management" and Hitul's Topic was on Concurrency and Parallelism.

After a lot of preparation I was ready to go on stage to deliver my talk, one piece of advise you're delivering a talk at a conference, avoid changing your slides at last moment. In my case, my talk was on 2nd day so I thought I'll add a demo video and modify the flow a little bit to make it more easy to understand. It clearly wasn't a good idea but I managed to handle it.


Here's video of my talk, looking forward to your feedback!

Getting Started with Rancher & Kubernetes

During my time working at Azoi (a startup), I was responsible for maintaining Gitlab for my team along with various other self-hosted internal services. When I first setup Gitlab in 2013, it was quite a task, as setting it up would involve configuring various services using provided scripts and a lot of luck. Fortunately, I found Bitnami Gitlab package to make that process easier. However initial setup is one thing and keeping up with the latest releases was a nightmare.

Fast forward to 2016, I joined eInfochips as Solutions Consultant. Where one of my responsibilities was to modernize development workflow and encourage DevOps culture. It made sense to use Gitlab specially for Gitlab-runner and since this was a fresh setup, I explored few options to setup Gitlab, I found that Gitlab monthly releases were now published as Docker images. So I decided to use Gitlab docker image to host gitlab-ce internally. This time around, the experience was very different, initial setup and upgrading…

Step 5:
Copy that file to XP running in Virtual Machine.

Step 6:

Click Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System -> Task Scheduler

select connect.bat as application to run and then set the time to run that app (same time in both systems*)

Time should be 2 minutes from current time so you dont have to wait too much...

*Very Important if connect.bat doesnt run at same time then only 1 XP would be connected to internet.

Complete Step 6 on both host and …
