Building and UX Testing Azure's Python SDK

Episode #251, published Thu, Feb 13, 2020, recorded Mon, Jan 27, 2020

What does it take to build a Python library that will be used by a large number of developers? This happens all the in open source. Projects take off and become wildly successful.

What if you could sit down with developers using your library and see how they take to it? Well, over on the Azure team, Kate Olszewska and Johan Stenberg do incredible user testing for Azure's Python SDK.

Just to give you a taste, imagine a room with a computer, a couple of developers unfamiliar with the API, a one-way mirror, and lots of feedback.
