Lightning talk

"Ruff: an extremely fast Python linter" presented by Monte Davidoff

Ruff is an extremely fast Python linter written in Rust. It is 10-100x faster than existing linters. It includes over 500 built-in rules including many rules implemented by several other popular, much slower, linters such as Pyflakes, pycodestyle, autoflake, flake8, pylint, isort, and pydocstyle. This talk will demonstrate how to use and configure Ruff.

Main talk

"From Complexity to Clarity: A Journey Towards Streamlined and Scalable Integrations" presented by Steven Cutting

AppOmni faced the challenge of creating integrations with an increasing number of SaaS applications while ensuring correctness, maintainability, and scalability. In this talk, I will share our journey towards the creation of a Python-based framework that simplifies this process. The framework provides an intuitive and expressive way to emphasize the vital details of each SaaS application (the essential complexity), while deemphasizing nonessential complexity. It allows maintainers of integrations to tackle complex relationships between data from multiple sources head-on.

This case study aims to help Python developers facing similar challenges by sharing how we arrived at our approach and the ideas that got us there. The focus is on the journey, rather than presenting a perfect solution.
