Last weekend I went to Vigo to attend the Second PyDay Galicia, a friendly and well organized Python event. It was located in the Contemporary Art Museum, where we had good rooms to enjoy the talks. After the first edition, they went bigger, enlarging 3 times the number of attendees. There were two tracks: a basic and a professional one; both were packed all the day, which was a very good sign.

Back in february Juanlu offered me the chance of giving a keynote at PyConES 2015. After the initial shock, I said yes. Next morning, I realized what had happened, but it was too late for me to say no. And 9 months later I was giving the opening talk in PyConES. All of you, dear two or three readers, may guess my fears: I don’t know what to tell, I don’t know how to speak in front of an audience, I don’t have anything interesting… and, of course, everyone will laugh at me so hard that I’ll have to live in a cave for the rest of my life, huh?

In this post you can read about the DjangoGirls workshop in last PyConES. I would also like to share some thoughts about the organizing process, which maybe can be useful for potential DjangoGirls organizers. TL;DR: organizing this workshop took some time, but the amount of resources already made by the DjangoGirls community is just huge and very well prepared. If you’re thinking in organizing a DjangoGirls workshop, don’t hesitate: existing resources and the active community will help you anytime.

Last november 20th in Valencia, an amazing DjangoGirls took place. It was the first day of PyConES and I don’t think it could have started better. After three months of organization, all students and coaches were finally meeting in person at the UPV early in the morning expecting a great day. All our expectations were clearly surpassed :) We had 20 students and 9 coaches. The past week each team had a teleconference to prepare the installation, so we weren’t complete strangers.

I sent this email to my dearest @Pyladies_Es and they liked it. I hope you like it also :) The original version is in spanish, and at the end, you’ll find a translation :D ¿Por qué os tenéis que animar a dar una charla? Así de primeras, dar una charla mola. Mola mucho. Luego te dan feedback, te sugieren otros puntos de vista, o te agradecen ese consejo que justo les resolvió la papeleta.

EuroPython 2015

This past week I attended EuroPython 2015 in Bilbao. A whole week of talks, workshops and social events around the Python ecosystem.

DjangoGirls On monday, I participated in the awesome DjangoGirls as a coach!

It was a great experience to go through this amazing tutorial (seriously, this is good stuff) with Caroline, Kelly and María.

Introducción Si en el anterior artículo vimos cómo configurar un sistema de CI para un proyecto Python-Django con Travis CI , hoy veremos cómo hacerlo con Jenkins. Si los conceptos os quedaron más o menos claros, no tendréis dificultad para realizar este proceso, pues guarda muchas similitudes. Voy a referirme al mismo proyecto que en el anterior artículo y la instalación del software la ejemplificaré para el caso de realizarse sobre una plataforma debian jessie, aunque para otras distribuciones Linux seguramente sea análoga.

Siguiendo la estela los artículos de temática relacionada con TDD y Django, quiero compartir con vosotros una configuración sencilla y rápida de un entorno de TDD que estoy usando en proyectos de Python - Django para poder automatizar la ejecución de las pruebas. La idea es despreocuparnos de la ejecución manual de las pruebas y que haya un sistema automatizado ejecutándolas de manera periódica o ante ciertos eventos clave. Integrado dentro de un sistema que genere las builds de nuestro proyecto, conformaría un entorno deIntegración Continua.

Hace cosa de un mes David Villa se puso en contacto conmigo para invitarme a dar una introducción a TDD en las jornadas del 25 aniversario de la Escuela Superior de Informática de Ciudad Real. Y como no tengo remedio, dije que sí :) Estuvimos intercambiando algunas impresiones sobre qué sería interesante tratar, y más o menos nos quedamos con la siguiente lista corta: quién soy y de dónde vengo, agile, scrum, clean code, TDD, nuevas metodologías acompañadas de nuevos roles, ah!
