I’ve migrated my personal blog from Tinkerer back to WordPress, which may introduce repeated articles into the various RSS feeds, since the URLs have changed.
The primary reason I decided to change blogging tools is because with more than 500 posts, the site build time under Tinkerer was unacceptably long. It works great for someone familiar with Sphinx, and with a smaller amount of content than I have.

I am also going to be experimenting with posting from mobile devices using the WordPress app.
Yesterday I gave a talk titled “How I Built a Power Debugger Out of the Standard Library and Things I Found On the Internet” at
PyOhio 2015. The slides and video are now online.
Smiley demonstrates how to use Python’s native tracing capabilities to monitor not just what parts of your program run, but the data flowing through the program as it runs. All of the data is recorded for study after the program exits, which means you can pass different inputs and then compare the results of the runs. In this presentation, I will describe the evolution of Smiley, from concept through internal API changes as I worked on the implementation. I will also talk about tracing Python programs in general, and explain how the trace code in Smiley can be used to send trace data to different output

As an OpenStack developer, I spend a lot of time looking at web sites for code review, project status, bug reports, the wiki, and other online collaboration tools. As a productivity boost, I’ve set up “keyword bookmarks” for all of the most commonly accessed tools, turning my browser’s input field into a command-line-like short-cut to jump directly to the page I want, without hunting around in a long list of links.
