Episode #159: Inside the new PyPI launch

Published Fri, Apr 27, 2018, recorded Wed, Apr 18, 2018.

Python is often described as a "batteries included" language and ecosystem. In fact, that's been taken so far that there is even a delightful Easter egg in the Python REPL. Just type "import antigravity" to see what I mean.

Where do these powerful packages come from? Well, the Python Package Index or PyPI.

On this episode, you will meet Nicole Harris, Ernest Durbin III, and Dustin Ingram. They were part of the team that has just launched the new version of PyPI over at

Not only have they given us a great new website around packaging in Python. They have laid the foundation for innovation in this space for years to come.
