Python Programming: PyCon India, Python 3.8.2rc2 and More

  • PyCon India 2019 :: Late Report

    Personally, I think the venue choice this year was great again, as we were able to accommodate 20+ sponsor stalls while still not overloading the halls and having ample space to conduct multiple tracks of the conference scheduled for the attendees. [...] Apart from these, there also are some monetary benefits to volunteering at a conference- registration fee for volunteers is generally waived off at paid-ticket based conferences and some quite generous conferences also have accommodation options for volunteers during the conference days, free of cost. Also, organizers usually have free goodies to give away to the volunteers at the end of the conference. The volunteers met at the convention centre a day before the conference to prepare the goodies bags for the attendees. These bags simply consisted of a schedule page, a pen, a notebook and a couple of PyCon India stickers- one for you, and one for sharing with your pal.

  • Uniquely Managing Test Execution Resources using WebSockets

    Executing tests for simple applications is complicated. You have to think about the users, how they interact with it, how those interactions propagate through different components, as well as how to handle error situations gracefully. But things get even more complicated when you start looking at more extensive systems, like those with multiple external dependencies. Dependencies come in various forms, including third-party modules, cloud services, compute resources, networks, and others.

    While the free Stoneshard: Prologue is already available on Linux, the Early Access build of the proper game Stoneshard is currently not. It was supposed to launch at the same time as Windows on Steam, however they've been encountering some issues blocking the Linux version. They have mentioned this a few times on their Steam forum so thankfully they've been keeping people informed. I

  • Try out the Alpha testing build of the obstacle course racer Turbo Boom! - coming to Steam

    Race around tracks, avoid obstacles and attempt to get the best time in the racing game Turbo Boom! that's coming to Steam.

It's a high-score chaser as you fight for positions on a leaderboard against friends and the world.

  • Twin-stick multiplayer party game 'Trailer Trashers' looks absolutely mad

    Releasing on Steam on March 10, Trailer Trashers has up to four people in local multiplayer go crazy as you bounce bullets around various cramped arenas. There's going to be five game modes like last person standing, team death-match, shotgun soccer and more. They made a little joke about an 'imaginary friend mode' so possibly some AI in there if you don't manage to get someone to play with. However, with Steam Remote Play local-only games aren't such a problem they once were.

    Continuing to be possibly the most unique first-person shooter on Steam in terms of weaponry, Shotgun Farmers has a pretty fun new update out. In Shotgun Farmers, all the weapons are inspired by fruit and vegetables. Not just inspired in the name and style, if your bullets miss your enemy and hit the ground they grow a new weapon right there. It's amusing! A very sweet game that continues getting better, it really deserves more attention.

Wild Mage Games were originally working on Almost Epic Adventures: The Goblin's Week, however that's currently on pause due to a lack of current resources so instead of cutting it up they decided to go with an intermediate project focusing on 'trapped dungeon exploration' with Neverlooted Dungeon.

Gpg4KDE & GPG4win Approved for Transmission & Processing of National Classified Information

Something that may have slipped you by: Back in November, the German Federal Office for Information Security approved Gpg4KDE and Gpg4win for the transmission and processing of national classified information. Gpg4KDE is the encryption system that you use each time you encrypt and sign messages in KMail. Gpg4win, used for encrypting and signing emails on Windows, is built upon KDE's certificate manager Kleopatra. The German Government has now ranked both secure enough to be used when transmitting messages with VS-ONLY FOR SERVICE USE (VS-NfD), EU RESTRICTED and NATO RESTRICTED levels of confidentiality. In view of the recent Rubicon/Crypto AG/CIA scandal, this is further evidence that FLOSS encryption technology is the only reliable encryption technology. Read more
