Episode #127: Shipping software to users

Published Thurs, Aug 31, 2017, recorded Mon, Jun 12, 2017.

To make software useful, honestly, to even make it real, you have to ship it. Building a web app? Then deploy that next version. Building a toolset for data scientists? Send them that application. Managed to get a cool GUI going in Python with Togo or PySide? Time to have your users start downloading it.

Python is an amazing ecosystem. But one of the frailer parts of it has been shipping and deploying software - especially to end users. This episode, you'll meet Glyph.

Join us as we discuss where we are and where we are going for shipping Python code.
