Effective Python

Episode #25, published Tue, Sep 15, 2015, recorded Wed, Aug 12, 2015

What if you could bottle up all the wisdom and hard-fought experience of many expert Python developers and power up your own skills? That's what Brett Slatkin did and he put it in his book Effective Python.

Brett has had a unique opportunity to learn the correct and efficient ways to write Python. He has worked at Google on Google App Engine (GAE) alongside greats such as Guido van Rossum and Alex Martelli. Join the conversation where we discuss some of that wisdom when we talk about Brett's book "Effective Python".
