Published Tues, Jun 30, 2015, recorded Tues, Jun 2, 2015.

It's uncommon when technology and purpose combine to create something amazing. But that's exactly what's happening here a Patreon. Learn how they are using Python to enable an entirely new type of crowdsourcing for creative endeavours (podcasting, art, open source, and more).

In this episode, I speak with Albert Shue from Patreon about their journey of converting patreon.com from PHP to Python 3. You will learn some practical techniques for setting up such a project for success and avoiding some of the biggest risks.
