#471 Learning and teaching Pandas

If you want to get better at something, often times the path is pretty clear. If you get better at swimming, you go to the pool and practice your strokes and put in time doing the laps. If you want to get better at mountain biking, hit the trails and work on drills focusing on different aspects of riding. You can do the same for programming. Reuven Lerner is back on the podcast to talk about his book Pandas Workout. We dive into strategies for learning Pandas and Python as well as some of his workout exercises.

Being a developer with ADHD

Do you feel like ADHD is holding you back? Maybe you don't personally have ADHD but you work with folks who do and you'd like to support them better. Either way, how ADHD interplays with programming and programmers is pretty fascinating. On this episode we have Chris Ferdinandi who himself has ADHD and has written a lot about it to share his journey and his advice for thriving with ADHD as a programmer or data scientist.

What listeners think

Exceptional for those new to Python
The podcast has been a wealth of information and has positively contributed to my efforts to learn Python. Michael interviews a great cross-section of people using Python. The biggest benefit for me has been the exposure to the various libraries and seeing the multitude of areas that I can use Python. Frankly, the podcast this the best way I've found to augment the training videos, documentation, and books I've used to learn the language.

Interesting and entertaining
I'm an avid listener of podcasts going way back before this was a big thing. This is one of those special gems worth listening to, learn something new or remind me of what is possible in Python.
If you care about Python at all, you need to listen to this podcast
Wow. What can I say? Michael Kennedy is the best! His passion for Python is infectious. He pours it into his work and it shows. He takes time to keep up with what's going on and to make connections with people doing amazing things. Then he does amazing interviews with those amazing people.
