But what is Swagger, and why is it useful to your RESTful API? With a Swagger-enabled API you can get interactive documentation, client SDK generation and discoverability, all for free. From Swagger website: Swagger is a simple yet powerful representation of your RESTful API. »

Cerberus 1.0 is coming and it is going to be awesome

Cerberus is a lightweight and extensible data validation library for Python. Beta has been around since 2012. During this time Cerberus has been serving as the validation system for Eve core. It has been also adopted by a quite a lot open source projects, averaging around 18K downloads per month on PyPI and collecting some remarkable endorsements.

All things considered, I would dare to claim that Cerberus is battle tested to death. This is, in fact, one reason why I believe that the time for a canonical and stable release has come. Another reason is that next release is a major one. It brings a ton of important new features along with very significant code refactoring and a redesigned, powerful API. Third, next release breaks backward compatibility, and we want to signal that in the version number.

So next Cerberus release will be 1.0. If you have been following the development this will come as no surprise, as a Release Candidate has been out for a while. As a Cerberus user you will want to take the plunge and upgrade to 1.0 because well, it is just too cool to be true. If new to Cerberus you will also want to adopt 1.0 right away, for the same reason. If you are new however, make sure you get the basics covered before reading further. By the way, at latest PyCon Italy I gave a talk on Cerberus which also included a preview of several 1.0 features. You can check the slides to get a general idea of the tool, its usage, and upcoming features.

Let’s now look at some of the relevant features and changes introduced with Cerberus 1.0. For a (mostly) accurate list of changes and new features, have a look at the changelog.


Fattura Elettronica per la PA v0.2.1

Ho appena pubblicato su NuGet l’ultimo aggiornamento di FatturaElettronicaPA, il package .NET per la compilazione e convalida delle fatture elettroniche per la Pubblica Amministrazione. Si tratta della versione 0.2.1 che fa proprie le novità annunciate il 9 Maggio scorso: A partire dal 9 maggio 2016 sono introdotti nuovi controlli sui file trasmessi al Sistema di Interscambio. Per consentire il necessario adeguamento al nuovo regime di verifiche, fino al 31 luglio 2016 il mancato superamento di uno o più di questi nuovi controlli non comporterà lo scarto del file ma solo una segnalazione che verrà riportata all’interno della Ricevuta di consegna o della Notifica di mancata consegna. »

My Crazy Speaking Month

April was definitely my crazy Speaking Month. After an almost one year long self-imposed conference hiatus, I was challenged to deliver four different talks, attend two discussion panels, give one live demo and release one interview. All in a three weeks period span. First I went to PyCon Sette in Florence. A few days later a plane took me to St. Petersburg, Russia, for PiterPy. Finally, the next weekend I was in Rome for the Western Europe Microsoft MVP Community Day. »
