Managing Dependencies & Runtime Security

Pete Garcin


In this workshop we’ll explore working with complex dependency trees in Python, learn about how to quickly configure virtual environments, as well as how you can implement zero-discipline runtime security scanning for your applications. ActiveState’s ActivePython distribution and the newly launched ActiveState platform provide solutions to these problems in simple and powerful ways. During this workshop, we’ll walk through: - How you can use the ActivePython distribution to have a pre-configured, pre-built environment for many common development tasks and avoid dealing with complex build steps for dependencies. - How to configure a virtual environment for your project - How to integrate ActiveState’s runtime interpreter plugin to either ActivePython or your existing Python distribution to achieve zero-discipline security reporting - A demonstration of how the new ActiveState platform sets you up to solve these problems and more in a simple, powerful manner"
