The sound of flip-flops hitting the sidewalks, and the sweet smell of barbecue filling the air reminds us daily that summer has finally arrived, relieving our beleaguered city from the siege of winter. However, do not think that Montréal-Python is out on vacation, for next Monday, the 9th of June, is our best Montréal-Python yet.

From the depths of the cpython interpreter to the heights of the newest mobile frameworks, we are going to show you how you can hack all through the summer in python!

Flash Presentations (5 minutes each):

  • Ghislain Hivon: A hobbist introduction to the kivy framework.
  • Emiliy Irvine: Why I chose Python for my neuroscience data analysis
  • Rory Geoghegan: MOTM: configparser
  • Eryk Warren: Identifying latencies in your code

Main Presentations:

  • Clement Rouault: Exploration des CPython internals depuis Python avec le module ctypes (30mins)
  • Julia Evans: Easy network hacking with scapy (20mins)

Have you ever wanted to learn more about networking, but were scared by tcpdump and using sockets in C? scapy makes it easy! You can build raw network packets (UDP! TCP/IP! ICMP!) with just a few lines of Python code.

  • Konstantin Ryabitsev: Totpcgi: a fully-featured OATH TOTP/HOTP server (30 mins)
  • Pierre Paul Lefebvre: Vagrant-Control, une interface web (open-source) pour gérer un parc de machines vagrant (LXC, VMWare, VirtualBox). (10 mins)
