TriPython July 2018 Meeting: Lighting Macro Photographs with CircuitPython

LED lighting rigs are expensive. Worse, they have little to no controls aside from on and off. Most are not dimmable and the only way to change color is to use gels (colored sheets of plastic). In this talk Stacy Morse will present how she used CircuitPython in conjunction with LEDs and microcontrollers to make a custom LED lighting rig. Macro photography is very small scale and the standard LED light arrays are too much for a given composition. LED arrays for photography are expensive and featureless. Use CircuitPython to control LEDs using microcontrollers to light macro photography. Our speaker, Stacy Morse, is a time traveling immortal who programs with Python and builds things that blink. She is a freelancer/contractor building web applications. This allows her to work on her personal Python project, a hand-held programmable LED array for lighting photographs. Stacy's talk will also be featured at PyCon Australia in late August. 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.

TriPython June 2018 Meeting: How to Plan to Migrate to Python 3

Python 2 will no longer be supported past 2020, yet many organizations still haven't made the switch to Python 3. This talk by Philip Semanchuk is for anyone facing a 2-to-3 migration that they'd like to feel more confident about. Attendees will leave with the outline of a migration plan, some suggested focus areas, a knowledge of helpful tools, and links to resources they can use after the talk. Philip Semanchuk is a freelancer with over 25 years of experience, the last 10 of which have been principally in Python. He is the author and maintainer of the posix_ipc extension. He has spoken at TriPython multiple times and has also spoken at the Piedmont-Triad Python User Group, PyOhio, PyData, and PyCarolinas. Outside the office, Philip enjoys gardening, kayaking, and performing small theatrical roles. Inside the office, colleagues tend to object. Extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don't need to be pre-announced. Park in the municipal deck on the other side of the Arts Council across W. Morgan St. The after-meeting will be around the corner at Bull McCabe's Irish Pub. Come join us for a fun and informative evening.

TriPython May 2018 Meeting: ArcPy: Wrangling Geospatial Data with Python

ArcPy, the Python interface for ArcGIS Desktop/ArcGIS Pro, allows you to work with geographic datasets and invoke the powerful tools that have been developed by ESRI for analyzing and visualizing geospatial. This talk will provide an overview of the functionality exposed by the ArcPy API and demonstrate how these functionalities can be invoked. Python can be used to invoke any of the built-in tools for processing geospatial data (e.g., finding buffer zones to identify streams near proposed highways, intersecting geospatial data layers to find overlap of historical habitat and urban sprawl, calculating changes in landscapes with raster algebra, and so forth). Attendees will learn how to interpret the ArcPy help documentation and how Python can be used to call geoprocessing tools, to programmatically manage proprietary GIS data formats (list and describe the data), read and modify proprietary data formats such as shapefiles with arcpy, work with ArcGIS map documents, generate custom ArcGIS GUIs. Our speaker, Laura G. Tateosian, is a professor at the Center for Geospatial Analytics at North Carolina State University where she leads an active research program in geovisualization and recently authored a textbook on Python for ArcGIS. Her lab works with geoparsing, eye trackers, and open source web mapping and visualization tools to investigate plant disease spread and human trafficking and to develop innovative digital reading environments. She earned her B.A. in Mathematics from Towson University, her M.S. in Mathematics from the University of Oklahoma, and her Ph.D. in computer science from North Carolina State University. She teaches Python Geospatial Programming and Geovisualization in the Geospatial Analytics Ph.D. and the Master’s in Geospatial Information Science and Technology. She has traveled extensively and likes to body surf. Extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don't need to be pre-announced. Plenty of free after hours parking is available in the upper level of the deck behind WebAssign (turn through the median just before the intersection of Varsity and Main Campus Drives). If the door is locked, call the number posted on the door. An after-meeting location for food and beverage will be decided at the meeting (usually BaDa Wings at Mission Valley).
