  1. Introduction

    Small introduction to the Porto Codes project, and a warm up to the night’s presentation.

  2. An introduction to FastAPI, by Helena Lopes

    FastAPI is a recent Python web framework for building APIs that has been gaining a lot of popularity lately. It is based on open standards like OpenAPI or JSON Schema and supports asynchronous programming or Python type annotations. I hope to inspire you to use it, just as I was inspired by the FastAPI creator.

  3. Simplifying the Cloud: A Beginner's Guide to Fly.io, by Francisco Marques

    This talk introduces Fly.io, a simple platform transforming the deployment of global applications for small organisations. This platform goes against the growing trend of the complexity seen in popular infrastructure abstractions, by making global container deployments straightforward and effortless, even for beginners.

  4. Dinner + Ice cream

    We will have dinner downtown, please let us know of any dietary restrictions so we can plan accordingly.

    Afterwards it is customary to go for ice cream and continue the conversation.
