An unconference session for Python developers at MongoSV.
With over 180,000 projects and over 2 million users, SourceForge has tons of data about people developing and downloading open source projects. Until recently, however, that data didn't translate into usable information, so Zarkov was born. Zarkov is system that captures user events, logs them to a MongoDB collection, and aggregates them into useful data about user behavior and project statistics. This talk will discuss the components of Zarkov, including its use of Gevent asynchronous programming, ZeroMQ sockets, and the pymongo/bson driver.

Drop in on this technical talk with OpenShift Evangelist and all-around Open Source guy Mark Atwood. In this talk you'll be able to follow along on your own laptop as we deploy a Twitter-clone Python app built using the Bottle web framework with a MongoDB back-end. Nothing complicated, nothing convoluted. We'll use Git to push code and OpenShift to host our app and MongoDB. We'll take a crack at how to preform snapshots (backups and restores) and effectively tail MongoDB logs while we are at it. If you don't have one, maybe even two MongoDB apps running on the cloud by the end of the talk, without having to pull out your credit card, you're doing it wrong. MongoDB on OpenShift is Big and it's FREE!
