Learn Python with Talk Python's Python courses

Coming into Python from another Industry (part 1)

Episode #173, published Tue, Aug 7, 2018, recorded Wed, Jul 25, 2018.

This episode is carbon neutral.
Not everyone comes to software development and Python through 4-year computer science programs at universities. This episode highlights one alternative journey into Python.

Over the course of two episodes, you will meet people who started in other industries and now make Python part of their daily experience. Some of them have used programming to power-up their specialization. Others decided they'd rather be doing programming fulltime and made that switch.

This is part 1 of this two-part series. Our guests this time are Derrick Chambers, Jim Taysom, Arash Soheili, and Rob Ward.
