Last week post.
#1 NameError: name 'basestring' is not defined. Surprisingly there is still conflict with Ansible when installed using pip for Python 2 and Python 3.
#2 GNU/Linux Performance. Poster of tools you can use to investigate performance issues with your system.
#3 Container as Python module. (HN discussion) Interesting concept indeed. I've been looking at Docker for the past three weeks and this is probably best interesting use of container. It's useful when you want to build up an actual test environment from your Python apps or scripts. Instead of Mock object, you can test against the actual system, for example, an actual database system.
#4 Xamarin sold to Microsoft. (HN discussion). What took them so long? I read (can't remember where), it was sold for 400 millions. Interesting to see how this unfold in coming future.
#5 Non Zero Day. (HN discussion) Effective way to build a new habit through chain-method or streak. No, Jerry Seinfield did not create the Seinfield productivity program. For me, almost daily Git commit. You have to get started on something, the baby step..
