A community of Python (https://www.python.org/) enthusiasts. Members range in experience from 20 days to 20 years, and hail from Pittsburgh and surrounding areas of southwest Pennsylvania. We use Python for data science, websites, devops & hardware devices in our jobs, universities or for personal passion. We strive to maintain a welcoming atmosphere for everyone, and beginners are encouraged to attend.
Jason Coombs is a shared or sole maintainer for over 140 projects in the Python ecosystem, a responsibility which he has accumulated over the past decade of his open source contributions. At this scale, it becomes unsustainable to employ bespoke, manually-intensive processes to the maintenance workflows. In this talk, Jason gives an overview of the Python packaging ecosystem and maintainer workflows, presents a selection of the challenges, and details some established and emergent techniques for tackling these challenges and streamlining the process.
