Computer networking is a valuable tool that has been used time and time again with all kinds of success. In a conventional setup, physical switches and routers are required along with configurations for each one. Such an arrangement can be quite complicated, thus a different approach was formed. Software-Defined Networking (SDN), seeks to simplify the process. What all does it encompass? Let’s pop the hood.
There are all kinds of event-driven programming networks in existence today and each has strengths and weaknesses. With a set of powerful tools to handle Internet protocols, Twisted has emerged as one of the best for networking. Enabling writing, testing and code deployment, Twisted comes with application servers and protocol implementations for almost everything. Moreover, thanks to its foundation in Python, simple programming on a secure framework means quick turnaround on projects. Let's dig a little deeper into Twisted.
All software development companies are always on the lookout for the best resources to accomplish their goals. In many cases, Python has become one of those tools. A Google search for developer positions certainly yields multiple requests for experience in Python. Why? What's the draw? Python is known for a design that emphasizes code readability with fewer lines of code than other languages. Thus, a developer can work more quickly and efficiently within a safe and secure language. And that's only skimming the surface of what Python is/can do. As such, the prevalence of this open source language has spread across the world including in Portland, Oregon.
New Relic has launched a Python Public Beta for their Application Monitoring service. Their service already offered a wide range of languages including Java, .NET, PHP and Ruby. Now you can get the same Real-Time visibility for your Django application.
