About Speaker

Graham has been using the Python programming language since the days when the only way to obtain it was as shar files over Usenet news groups. He is the author of mod_wsgi, a module for hosting Python web applications with Apache, as well as the wrapt module, a package designed for creating robust decorators and for monkey patching. Graham is a Fellow of the Python Software Foundation and a member of the Apache Software Foundation.

About the Topic

In this talk you will learn about how the landscape around how Python web applications are deployed has changed significantly over the last decade. It will follow not only the changes to the actual hosting mechanism used, but the ever evolving environment which surrounds it. This will include the transition from self managed systems, to IaaS, PaaS and more recently, container based deployment using Docker.
