This episode is carbon neutral.
Some of the things we do in life are tedious and boring. It's the kind of thing that machines or robots could do. So let's build those machines!

This week we talk Al Sweigart, the author of Automating the Boring Stuff. You'll learn how he hopes to engage and teach Python to a unique and broad segment of the population. We'll discuss why, at first, it might make more sense to keep things simple rather than insisting on the "right" patterns and best practices.
