   - *A Robust Dev-to-Production Workflow for Home Use, Using Jupyter
   Notebooks and PyTest*
   By: Leon Shernoff
   Experience Level: Novice
   Working on a substantial Python project at home can be confusing and
   frustrating. A work environment can suddenly impact the direction
of a project
   in unexpected ways, because of the many stakeholders; but they usually have
   a robust process in place for actually doing the coding (otherwise nothing
   gets done). Implementing a solid and productive workflow routine at home
   can be a challenge, but it is of great benefit for complex projects. This
   talk uses a sample text-processing project to demonstrate a home workflow
   design featuring sandboxing in Jupyter notebooks, migration of working
   routines to project-specific modules and straight-ahead Python files, and
   writing unit tests for these in PyTest.

   Experience Level: Intermediate

   show how to use Django and Web3py to deploy a smart contract that performs
   - *Going with the flow: Intro to Airflow*
   By: Matt Inwood
   Experience Level: Intermediate
   Airflow is a great open source resource for managing ETL, or any other
   scheduled jobs. We'll go over the DAG-Task-Script Hierarchy; job triggers,
   logging, and the web interface. I'll also talk about some best practices,
   and different caveats and gotchas that you can come across from my personal
   experience implementing it.
