   - *Python at Nokia (by MacGregor Felix)*
   (1:00:00 Minutes)
   Python is known to be a multi-purpose and multi-paradigm programming
   language. Come see how the Reality Capture & Processing (RCP) group of
   Nokia HERE is making use of Python’s versatility. We will show you how HERE
   RCP uses Python’s Object Oriented constructs to represent business models
   in production systems. You will see how Python’s functional lambdas are
   used to elegantly facilitate the handling of big data. We will discuss the
   use of Python not only in production code but also in test code. We not
   only use Python for production purposes but also to build utilities. We
   hope to show you how we utilize Python's versatility and closeness to the
   operating system to build sophisticated tools for development and
   operational productivity. You’ll see our Test Driven development effort
   while building Python products and how we use Python in Behavior Driven
   Development to code language-agnostic acceptance tests for the evolution of
   software and services. We will also give you a pick at our Python packaging
   and distribution.
   - *Python-fu in the GIMP*
   (0:42:00 Minutes)
   By: Tanya Schlusser
   GIMP (the GNU Image Manipulation Program) is great all by itself but is
   even better with Python-fu. This talk demonstrates a little Python-fu to
   manipulate images in GIMP, with a little (slightly ugly) hacking to add
   external libraries.
