7:30pm: Entangled in dependencies: Pipenv and Poetry by Alex Khaerov

A Pythonista has more ways to manage dependencies than any other programmer. What happened and how is this compatible with "The Zen of Python"? Should Python have only one instrument? In the past year, two new contenders entered the scene to fix packaging for good - Pipenv and Poetry. This talk is an attempt to review through DevOps point of view and real production experience.

Alex Khaerov is a development lead at Chainstack, with 9+ years in web services development. His main passion is building robust, high-load and distributed service platforms on top of a multi-cloud environment, utilizing all the power of Kubernetes. An avid activist of Moscow Kubernetes and Moscow Python communities. In his spare time, he speaks publicly at tech conferences and secretly codes in Python. Huge fan of laptop stickers.
