Python in Car Racing

Episode #281, published Wed, Sep 9, 2020, recorded Wed, Jul 22, 2020.

This episode is carbon neutral.
I love to bring you stories of Python being used in amazing places outside the traditional tech silos of pure web development and data science.

On this episode, you'll meet Robert "Kane" Replogle, who works on the simulation and test software at Richard Childress Racing. The NASCAR team that just finished #1 and 2 in at the Texas Motor Speedway.

You'll hear how Python is allowing them to model car behavior, air flow, and more much faster than others using outdated tools.
