Surviving Without Python


Python is such a popular language for good reason: Its principles are strong. However, if Python is “the second-best language for everything”… that means the first-best is often chosen instead. Oh no! How can Pythonistas survive a project or workplace without our favorite language?

Personally, even though I love Python, I don’t use it daily at my full time job. Nevertheless, Pythonic thinking guides my whole approach to software. I will talk about how the things that make Python great can be applied to non-Python places in three primary ways:

  1. Principles from the Zen of Python
  2. Projects that partially use Python
  3. People who build strong, healthy community

Check out my talk, Surviving Without Python, from PyOhio 2019! It was one of the most meaningful talks I’ve ever given.
