Debugging Python in Production with PyStack

Episode #419, published Wed, Jun 14, 2023, recorded Tue, Jun 6, 2023

Here's the situation. You have a Python app that is locked or even has completely crashed and all you're left with is a core dump on the server. Now what? It's time for PyStack! You can capture a view of your app as if you've set a breakpoint and even view the callstack and locals across language calls (for example from Python to C++ and back). We have the maintainers, Pablo Galindo Salgado and Matt Wozniski, here to dive into PyStack. You'll definitely want to have this tool in your toolbox.
