Hi everyone,
 One minor correction to the talks this month: the first talk (by Moshe
Zadka) is the "NColony Process Supervisor". My auto-correct had changed
NColony to Colony. Sorry for the error.

 If you would like more information, please see the NColony website at

> *BayPiggies Infrastructure Night*
> *When:* Thursday, February 22, 2018, 7 pm to 9 pm
> *Where:* LinkedIn Corporation, Unify Meeting Room, 950 West Maude Ave,
> Sunnyale, CA <https://goo.gl/maps/pFzNFBkgJX42>
> For February, we will have two exciting talks on web application
> infrastructure. We hope to see you there!
> *1. The Colony Process Supervisor*
> *Speaker:* Moshe Zadka
> NColony is a process supervisor. I will detail the design choices made it
> NColony, and how they differ from other process supervisors:  how to run
> processes, what frameworks to choose, and how to support configuration --
> and dynamic reconfiguration. Then I will show how to use NColony in several
> common cases, including several strategies of integrating it into a Docker
> container build -- and the trade-offs between them.
> *Speaker Bio: *Moshe has been part of the open source community since
> 1995, when he first helped people install Linux,  part of the Python
> community since 1998, when he first argued with Guido about Python and a
> core contributor to Twisted since its inception in 2001 -- when a comment
> about how to implement protocols and transport got him roped into
> maintaining the Protocol class for a few years. He has been speaking at
> conferences since 2002 -- the International Python Conference, EuroPython,
> PyCon, PyBay and PyTexas, as well as multiple meetups.
> *2. Designing fast and scalable Python MicroServices with django*
> *Speaker:* Dinesh Joshi
> Django, combined with the django REST framework, makes it very easy to
> build RESTful MicroServices. However, django is perceived to have some
> overhead making it hard to build fast and scalable MicroServices. This talk
> shows you how to squeeze the last bit of performance from django. We will
> focus on django’s key architectural components and the right way to use
> them. Using profiling, we will identify bottlenecks and fix them enabling
> you to build scalable RESTful services that play to django’s strengths. At
> the end of the talk you will have a good handle on building scalable
> MicroServices with django.
> *Speaker Bio:* Dinesh A. Joshi has been a professional Software Engineer
> for over a decade building highly scalable realtime Web Services and
> Streaming Data Processing Architectures serving over 1 billion devices. He
> started his career with Python & C++. He has used Python for over a decade
> for professional as well as personal side projects. Dinesh has a Masters
> degree in Computer Science from Georgia Tech, Atlanta.
