Connecting with Python

1. Community

I came for the language, but I stayed for the community.

The long list of Python community stuff

2. Platforms

You get what you want but...

  • It's complicated software engineering (ask me!)
  • It's always changing (CVEs, updates, broken services, new users, migrations, the list goes on...)
  • Contractors and churn = £££££££ 😱 (ask me!)
  • Everyone wants to sell you stuff (oh my!)
  • Someone needs to manage all this (don't ask me!)

Buy vs Build

😬 🤔 😮

The future..? closer than you think!
