It's a new Pythonic year and what could be better than starting it with a Montreal-Python meetup. Come discover different ways of using our favorite programming language.

As usual, snacks will be provided, but eat before, or even better, after by joining us at Benelux so you can network with the speakers and other attendees.

It's also with great joy that we announce that PyCon Canada 2017 will be held at home, here in Montreal. Add it to your calendars! For more information and to stay informed about the upcoming news, visit the PyCon Canada website at https://2017.pycon.ca/.

Rami Sayar: Building Python Microservices with Docker and Kubernetes

Python is powering your production apps and you are struggling with the complexity, bugs and feature requests you need. You just don't know how to maintain your app anymore. You're scared you have created the kraken that will engulf your entire development team!

Microservices architecture has existed for as long as monolithic applications became a common problem. With the DevOps revolution, it is the time to seriously consider building microservice architectures with Python.

This talk will share strategies on how to split up your monolithic apps and show you how to deploy Python microservices using Docker. We will get hands-on with a sample app, walk step-by-step on how to change the app's architecture and deploy it to the cloud.

No longer shall you deal with the endless complexities of monolithic Python apps. Fear the kraken no more!
