Callisto is an online reporting system. It's written in Django and provides a more empowering, transparent, and confidential reporting experience for survivors. It's absolutely essential that we keep our users' data secure Thankfully, although the infosec community can sometimes be intimidating, any one of us can learn how to build secure sites using Python. This talk covers the essential concepts behind securing your users' data and offer examples of how we applied them to Callisto.

Curator's note - In every office you have that one guy who tries to accomplish a whole lot of things on one line. This is a talk that you want to show them. Ideas and implementation behind Oneliner-izer, a ""compiler"" which can convert most Python 2 programs into one line of code. As we discuss how to construct each language feature within this unorthodox constraint, we'll explore the boundaries of what Python permits and encounter some gems of functional programming – lambda calculus, continuations, and the Y combinator.

Python provides the importlib package as part of its standard library of modules. Its purpose is to provide the implementation to Python’s import statement (and the __import__() function). In addition, importlib gives the programmer the ability to create their own custom objects (AKA an importer) that can be used in the import process.

Python is simpler and more fluid than other languages. Sometimes you want this fluidity, but usually you don't. Dynamic typing means that names may have values you don't expect. Where other languages offer access control over the internals of objects, Python lets you examine and change anything. All of your program's data is on the heap, and can be used throughout your program. All of this flexibility can be a powerful tool, but sometimes, things go wrong. The flexibility comes back to bite us, and causes problems that we have to debug.

If you need to work with images the Pillow is the library to use. The Python Image Libary (PIL) has long been the gold standard for resizing, analyzing, and processing pictures in Python. Pillow is the modern fork that is bringing the PIL into the future so that we can all continue to use it moving forward. This week I spoke with Alex Clark about what first led him to fork the project and his experience maintaining it, including the migration to Python 3.
