PYPTUG Monthly meeting August 30 2016 (flask-restplus, openstreetmap)

Come join PYPTUG at out next monthly meeting (August 30th 2016) to learn more about the Python programming language, modules and tools. Python is the perfect language to learn if you've never programmed before, and at the other end, it is also the perfect tool that no expert would do without. Monthly meetings are in addition to our project nights.


Meeting will start at 6:00pm.

We will open on an Intro to PYPTUG and on how to get started with Python, PYPTUG activities and members projects, in particular some updates on the Quadcopter project, then on to News from the community.

Then on to the main talk.

Main Talk: Building a RESTful API with Flask-Restplus and Swagger
by Manikandan Ramakrishnan
Manikandan Ramakrishnan is a Data Engineer with Inmar Inc.

Building an API and documenting it properly is like having a cake and eating it too. Flask-RESTPlus is a great Flask extension that makes it really easy to build robust REST APIs quickly with minimal setup. With its built in Swagger integration, it is extremely simple to document the endpoints and to enforce request/response models.

Lightning talks! 

We will have some time for extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration. If you'd like to do one, some suggestions of talks were provided here, if you are looking for inspiration. Or talk about a project you are working on.
One lightning talk will cover OpenStreetMap
