   - *Measure It*
   By: Peter Fein
   measure_it provides timing and counting for iterators (and other code
   segments). https://measure_it.readthedocs.org/en/latest/
   - *CivicLab and Between the Bars*
   (0:15:00 Minutes)
   By: Benjamin Sugar
   In this talk, I will present on a slice of the maker movement called
   "civic making" and a new space that has opened up in Chicago to encourage
   this type creation, CivicLab. As an example of "civic making" I will
   discuss Between the Bars, a paper based blogging platform for those who are
   incarcerated, built in Django. I will also discuss our choice in framework
   and the pros/cons of our approach.
   - *Monoids in Python*
   (0:20:00 Minutes)
   By: Philip Doctor
   Monoids are largely badly explained, but actually quite beautiful. I
   would like to take a brief tour of what a monoid is and how they can help
   out with mundane every day tasks in python.
