Django under the hood: Django security - Florian Apolloner
django
In case you think you’ve found a security bug in django: look at https://djangoproject.com/security and only contact security@djangoproject.com. Don’t report such a bug publicly, as that makes it much harder to make and distribute a proper fix.
OpenStack Style Guidelines
Having a hacking guide for a project as big as OpenStack is a must. Reminds me of the one OpenOffice has to get people productive. OpenStack is dying a slow death, IMHO.
Tutorial: Get an SMS when the ISS is overhead with Python, Redis-Queue, and Twilio
With the new Star Wars trailer coming out, I’ve been really excited about space lately. This could be pretty obvious based on what I wore during my API demo at BostonHacks last weekend. Twilio also had private screenings of The Martian for community members recently in several different cities. Pretty cool topic.

Beal's Conjecture Revisited (Peter Norvig notebook)
In 1637, Pierre de Fermat wrote in the margin of a book that he had a proof of his famous "Last Theorem".Andrew Wiles proved Fermat's theorem in 1995, but Beal's offer of $1,000,000 for a proof or disproof of his conjecture remains unclaimed. I don't have the mathematical skills of Wiles, so all I can do is write a program to search for counterexamples. I first wrote that program in 2000, and my name got associated with Beal's Conjecture, which means I get a lot of emails with purported proofs or counterexamples (many asking how they can collect their prize money). So far, all the emails have been wrong. This page catalogs some of the more common errors—including two mistakes of my own—and shows an updated program.
