Pylabs returns

Tomorrow evening Pylabs is back with a new format and with a new Host James Rennison, whom some of you may know from other workshops that he’s hosted over the past year with us.

A huge thank you to Kathryn for setting up and establishing PyLAB.

For 2021 we’re going to start developing an application with multiple interfaces, interacting with multiple third-party systems. We’ll start preparing Python packages, writing code that can be reused, tested and deployed.

To do this we are going to try to use some of the tools and processes adopted by a lot of organisations. The idea is to keep this fun and practical while allowing participants to get an idea not just about how to write great code, but also how to ensure the code meets a standard, priorities are delivered and dependencies identified.

We’ll try out different approaches to find out what works for us, but we will start with an introduction to the Agile methodology, Scrum and look to adapt it to our needs.

The first workshop will be an introduction to how we will start with the Scrum ceremonies.

We’ll start to prepare and refine our first user stories and establish a cadence for the group. If you’d like to know a little more about writing code as part of a team, what Agile code development means or have something you’d like to contribute, please join us. There’s no expectation of commitment beyond the workshop.

Hope to see you on Workshop Wednesday! (signup under CodeHub @ Workshop Wednesdays if you are a member of Codehub)
