*Multiple System Failure: A case study in debugging*
By: Adam Forsyth
Recently, the Braintree Python library wasn't working on Google App Engine.
Braintree, GAE, requests, and urllib3 all had problems and I tracked down
each one. I'll walk you through debugging with only basic tools -- editing
the code to observe state and using git to find the responsible commit.
This talk expects a basic understanding of web programming, git, and Python.

*module of the month - usaddress*
By: Cathy Deng
usaddress is a python library that uses NLP methods to parse address
strings into structured components (e.g. street name, city, zip). it is
trained on real-world addresses with real-world data quirks - as a result,
it's robust in handling messy data. usaddress was built by DataMade, a
local civic technology company. TL;DR usaddress helps you avoid regex for
address data, which is a terrible rabbit hole.

*Hacking Bokeh*
By: Brian Ray
A brief introduction into Bokeh http://bokeh.pydata.org/en/latest/ And a
bit on how to build interactive graphs in jupyter notebooks or stand alone.

Thanks always to all our Platinum sponsors, especially: Braintree,
Imaginary Landscape, and Telnyx.

Please be aware of our code of conduct http://www.chipy.org/pages/conduct/

See you there!
