Interprocess Communication with Redis

There are many methods to communicating between processes. Many methods work best when only using a single programming language, while others require custom packets and parsing. Simplicity is key and Redis is an efficient solution. Redis is an open-source in-memory database project implementing a distributed, in-memory key-value store.

Testing Python Packages with Docker

Package management is hard. Sometimes in Python package development, your local (development) environment may behave a little differently than a deployment target. Below is a simple method I use to replicate a clean environment and test Python package installs and tests.

Start a Simple Web Server

Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto: Calibrating Robots with Python

This talk was presented at Montréal-Python 67: Ultramodern Vintage - PyCon Canada Special Modern robotic applications often rely on offline programming to reduce process downtime. In a virtual environment, robot application specialists may program, visualize, and test their robotic application before uploading it to the real production environment, saving time and costs. However, to achieve a high level of fidelity between virtual and production environments, the robot system must be accurate.
