Our culture's default assumption is that everybody should always be striving for perfection -- settling for anything less is seen as a regrettable compromise. This is wrong in most software development situations: focus instead on keeping the software simple, just "good enough", launch it early, and iteratively improve, enhance, and re-factor it. This is how software success is achieved! Read more.

There's a growing crowd of Python users who don't consider themselves beginners anymore. However some may notice behavior that's hard to explain. Why doesn't code behave like it should? Why doesn't "correct" code run correctly? We'll look at Python's memory model & best practices, addressing these issues directly. Let's empower attendees to write good code & not create these bugs to begin with! Read more.
