PyCon 2016 just ended! I had a far more relaxing time this year, since I didn’t have to give a talk.
Ned gave an amazing machete-mode debugging talk this year.
I’ve seen a couple of his talks over the past years, and this one is my favorite.
I bought a super cute PyLadies Seattle tshirt, featuring plaid hair!
Lars gave an incredible keynote! It was also great to see him again. 😀
I’m not sure if it was the talks or the general atmosphere, but I felt excited/inspired about software development in a way that I hadn’t been for a while.
I also got to see a lot of friends I don’t usually get to see, which was great.
Until next year, PyCon!
Oh boy! It’s Pygotham weekend!
Alberty, Harry, and I got up obscenely early today to attend this adorable New York python conference.
It was well worth it, ’cause we made it for breakfast, as well as for an amazing welcoming keynote by Hilary Mason.
She told us to stay curious, build community, and pave the way forward for Python (major paraphrase here).
After her talk, we briefly met up with my work buddies Adam and Jeff, before scurrying off to the talks.
Throughout the day, I got some nifty stickers for our tech sticker collection! 😀
Tomorrow, Brandon Rhodes is giving the closing keynote tomorrow. I saw him at the last Pycon and he was an amazing speaker!
He’s also going to be the co-chair of Pycon in 2015!
