We rung in the new year with a series of lightning talks:
Stan Schwertly kicked off the presentations with a set of slides on an email-to-youtube downloader script that combined Postfix, bash, and cclive to allow a user to email an address with a list of videos to download. The user receives a response email with a list of direct download links to the videos requested.
Trevor Parker continued the talks by overviewing Redis, a key-value store system that provides several NoSQL-like options for multiple languages.
Tim Heckman followed up with a presentation on Python’s HTTP requests module. The HTTP requests module is a more pythonic version of the current standard library and allows for easier interaction with remote servers.
Cheers to the Dead Coder Society!
