In the previous post we saw how a Go service can call a Python service using gRPC. Using gRPC to connect a Go and Python program together can be a great choice, but there’s a complexity price that goes with it. You need to manage one more service, deployment becomes more complex, and you need monitoring plus alerting for each service. Compared to a monolithic application, there is an order of magnitude more complexity.

In this post, we’re going to reduce the complexity of using gRPC by writing a shared library in Go that a Python program can consume directly. With this approach, there’s no networking involved and depending on the data types, no marshalling as well. Out of the several approaches of calling functions from a shared library in Python, we decided to use Python’s ctypes module.

Note: ctypes uses libffi under the hood. If you want to read some really scary C code - head over to the repo and start reading. :)

I’ll also show my workflow that is one of the big factors in my productivity. We’ll first write “pure” Go code, then write code to export it to a shared library. Then we’ll switch to the Python world and use Python’s interactive prompt to Play around with the code. Once we’re happy, we’ll use what we’ve learned in the interactive prompt to write a Python module.

Example: Checking the Digital Signature of Several Files in Parallel

Imagine you have a directory with data files, and you need to validate the integrity of these files. The directory contains a sha1sum.txt file with a sha1 digital signature for every file. Go, with its concurrency primitives and ability to use all the cores of your machine, is much better suited to this task than Python.

Listing 1: sha1sum.txt

Listing 1 shows an example of a digital signature file. It provides hash codes for all the different log files contained in the directory. This file can be used to verify that a log file was downloaded correctly or has not been tampered with. We’ll write Go code to calculate the hash code of each log file and then match it against the hash code listed in the digital signature file.

To speed this process up, we’ll calculate the digital signature of each file in a separate goroutine, spreading the work across all of the CPUs on our machine.
Michael #1: VS Code Device Simulator


  • Want to experiment with MicroPython?
  • Teaching a course with little IoT devices?
  • Circuit Playground Express
  • BBC micro:bit
  • Adafruit CLUE with a screen
  • Get a free VS code extension that adds a high fidelity simulator
  • Easily create the starter code (main.py)
  • Interact with all the sensors (buttons, motion sensors, acceleration detection, device shake detection, etc.)
  • Deploy and debug on a real device when ready Example of it running on a CLUE
  • Had the team over on Talk Python.

    Brian #2: pytest 6.0.0rc1

  • New features
  • You can put configuration in pyproject.toml
  • Inline type annotations. Most user facing API and internal code.
  • New flags - --no-header - --no-summary - --strict-config : error on unknown config key - --code-highlight : turn on/off code highlighting in terminal
  • Recursive comparison for dataclass and attrs
  • Tons of fixes
  • Improved documentation
  • There’s a list of breaking changes and deprications. But really, nothing in the list seems like a big deal to me.
  • Plugin authors, including myself, should go test this.
  • Already found one problem. pytest-check: stop on fail works fine, but failing tests marked with xfail show up as xpass. Gonna have to look into that. And might have to recruit Anthony to help out again.
  • To try it: pip install pytest==6.0.0rc1
  • I’m currently running through the pytest book to make sure it all still works with pytest 6. So far, so good.
  • The one hiccup I’ve found so far, TinyDB had a breaking change with 4.0, so you need to pip install tinydb==3.15.2 to get the tasks project to run right. I should have pinned that in the original setup.py.
  • However, all of the pytest stuff is still valid.
  • Guido just tweeted: “Yay type annotations in pytest!”

Python Tricks Every Developer Should Know

Python is awesome, it’s one of the easiest languages with simple and intuitive syntax but wait, have you ever thought that there might ways to write your python code simpler?

In this tutorial, you’re going to learn a variety of Python tricks that you can use to write your Python code in a more readable and efficient way like a pro.

Let’s get started

Swapping value in Python

Instead of creating a temporary variable to hold the value of the one while swapping, you can do this instead

>>> FirstName = "kalebu"
>>> LastName = "Jordan"
>>> FirstName, LastName = LastName, FirstName 
>>> print(FirstName, LastName)
('Jordan', 'kalebu')

How to Remove all Duplicate Files on your Drive via Python

Today you’re going to learn how to use Python programming in a way that can ultimately save a lot of space on your drive by removing all the duplicates.


In many situations you may find yourself having duplicates files on your disk and but when it comes to tracking and checking them manually it can tedious.

Heres a solution

Instead of tracking throughout your disk to see if there is a duplicate, you can automate the process using coding, by writing a program to recursively track through the disk and remove all the found duplicates and that’s what this article is about.

But How do we do it?

If we were to read the whole file and then compare it to the rest of the files recursively through the given directory it will take a very long time, then how do we do it?

The answer is hashing, with hashing can generate a given string of letters and numbers which act as the identity of a given file and if we find any other file with the same identity we gonna delete it.

There’s a variety of hashing algorithms out there such as

  • md5
  • sha1
  • sha224, sha256, sha384 and sha512

How To Compare Tesla and Ford Company By Using Magic Methods in Python

Magic Methods are the special methods which gives us the ability to access built in syntactical features such as ‘<’, ‘>’, ‘==’, ‘+’ etc…

You must have worked with such methods without knowing them to be as magic methods. Magic methods can be identified with their names which start with __ and ends with __ like init, call, str etc. These methods are also called Dunder Methods, because of their name starting and ending with Double Underscore (Dunder).

Now there are a number of such special methods, which you might have come across too, in Python. We will just be taking an example of a few of them to understand how they work and how we can use them.

1. init

class AnyClass:
    def __init__():
        print("Init called on its own")
obj = AnyClass()

The first example is _init, _and as the name suggests, it is used for initializing objects. Init method is called on its own, ie. whenever an object is created for the class, the init method is called on its own.

The output of the above code will be given below. Note how we did not call the init method and it got invoked as we created an object for class AnyClass.

Init called on its own

2. add

Let’s move to some other example, add gives us the ability to access the built in syntax feature of the character +. Let’s see how,

class AnyClass:
    def __init__(self, var):
        self.some_var = var
    def __add__(self, other_obj):
        print("Calling the add method")
        return self.some_var + other_obj.some_var
obj1 = AnyClass(5)
obj2 = AnyClass(6)
obj1 + obj2
