Mastodon for Python Devs

Episode #390, published Tue, Nov 15, 2022, recorded Mon, Nov 14, 2022

Wondering what Mastodon is all about? More importantly, what does it offer Python developers and other open source folks compared to Twitter? There is a huge amount of interest in the tech community about what's happening at Twitter and whether they should expand to or even move to a new location. So I decided to put together a set of experienced Python developers who have been Mastodon inhabitants for a long time to discuss what this unexpected shift means for one of our important online watering holes.

On this episode you'll meet Gina Häußge, Simon Willison, and Juan Luis Cano Rodríguez. We're going to have a great time talking about the technology and the culture of Mastodon from this Python perspective.
