If the subclassing/composition open space at #PyConUS is any indication, it will be both thought-provoking and fun!
It’s September 22nd–25th in Cardiff and tickets are still available: https://2023.pyconuk.org/tickets/
Woah, that's good timing!
Just found out that my PR to Awesome AZD Templates just got merged!
What that means is: You can now start a project using the Azure Developer CLI (azd) and use my "Music Binder" template.
You can then deploy it to Azure using "azd up"
(Here's the PR: https://github.com/Azure/awesome-azd/pull/163)

Thank you to all who helped make PyCon US 2023 a success We can't wait to see you in Pittsburgh in 2024!
Exciting to see that @PyConUS has posted the videos from #PyCon2023, which includes my very first lightning talk at #PyConUS! Nothing fancy but I hope it's a good start to pushing myself toward my goal to give more talks and presentations at conferences. You have to start somewhere!
Here's my talk, which starts around 34:47, but I recommend browsing the other talks as well - there were some fantastic speakers there this year.
#python #pycon #lightningtalk
Really enjoy to watch all sorts of videos from #PyConUS 2023. Simon Willison made a really interesting talk and a great motivation to to more SQL in general (without an ORM). -> check out datasette!
Update from me
1) I wrote a blog post about how to besome a speaker: https://cheuk.dev/2023/06/06/how-to-be-speaker/ (ES version coming soon)
2) Recording of my talk and tutorial at #PyConUS is out: https://www.youtube.com/@PyConUS/search?query=Cheuk
3) I am avaliable for the next role - do you want a Python developer that is also an advocate? I can do 50/50 developement and community work - let's talk
And once you're done watching all the talks, it would mean a lot to me if you'd watch the conference closing video too (https://youtu.be/YsO9KHl8Q0E)
As a parting gift to this special 20 years of PyCon, I (with help from @georgically) prepared something that's never been done before at PyCon: an ending credits to thank everyone involved. You all should feel like superstars! 🤩
I know y'all are now binging on those #PyConUS 2023 keynotes and talk videos which are now released on YouTube, but your experience won't be the same unless you also watch the welcome message from your conference chair 😊 (https://youtu.be/eZwHvBsoPn4)
The video for my talk from #PyConUS on Python's syntactic sugar is up! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gjvjkSs570&list=PL2Uw4_HvXqvY2zhJ9AMUa_Z6dtMGF3gtb&index=106

Blog posts from the Python Language Summit at #PyConUS 2023 are now up! (Written by @AlexWaygood )
It's the last day we're accepting talk proposals! We don't need to extend our deadline, so we won't.
What does that mean? If you want a chance to be on stage at North Bay Python, you need to get a talk in TODAY.
Last year, I went to PyCon a bit timidly, not knowing much of anything about the Python community.
This year, I was involved in quite a few things:
- helping with the online platform
- PSF booth planning/setup
- 3.5 hr tutorial
- 30 min talk
- Lightning talk
- hosted an open space
Check it out!
I always love chatting with Jay Miller. 💖
We chatted about:
4) Final #PyConUS 2023 slides
Fun fact: There's photo of Darren Hayes (and myself) and nobody booted me off stage 😝
- 77% first time attendees!!
- $1M in sponsorships 🤑
- Zen side of the moon went for $3K
- Regional PyCons
3) #PyConUS 2023: Sunday morning
(Almost done with the conference), extending the posters session to 3 PM, and congrats @treyhunner and @melaniearbor for the #IceCreamSelfie 🍦🤳
2) #PyConUS 2023: Saturday happenings
Highlighting PyLadies Auction item: the Zen Side of the Moon, PyCon Active, and congratulations in order to @amethyst for proposing a PEP during #PyConUS 🤩 +5 challenge points!
Huh turns out "collections" in Speakerdeck is private to me so the above link doesn't work.
Well if people still want to see my #PyConUS slides, here they are:
1) Welcome to #PyConUS 2023 https://speakerdeck.com/mariatta/welcome-to-pycon-us-2023
and.. If you read closely, you'll earn 1 challenge point for spotting uppercased f-string
I didn't actually give a "talk" during #PyConUS 2023, but I did get onstage multiple times and faced like 2,000 people live 😱 (and maybe 700 online viewers) and told them about things. I don't know what that's called 🙃
Anyway, the slides are here:
Why not use that contrast as inspiration: there's plenty of regional PyCons you can plan to attend. If you've left PyCon thinking there's something you could have shared with the conference, it's a great opportunity to speak without having to wait a whole year longer.
North Bay Python*, for instance, has a CFP open right now!
(*shameless plug, I know)
I hadn’t signed on here in a while and tho I’m very behind it’s still nice to see all the #PyConUS happiness posts :)
The thing they don't tell you in the #PyConUs brochures and marketing materials: when you get back, you will at some point find yourself back in the Real World, feeling like PyCon Was Fun and This Is Not So Much. It's not PyCon's fault, but the contrast is stark.
Post #PyConUS I find myself home, happy, and healthy. Many thanks to the organizers for holding the line on #masking and #vaccination requirements and for prioritizing the health of the amazing #Python community.
I loved seeing all of you, meeting some new people, reconnecting with good friends, and generally reminding myself that while I may write Ruby professionally now, my heart is always going to be whitespace-delimited.
More on what I did: https://www.harihareswara.net/posts/2023/pycon-2023-argument-clinic-mitigating-covid-risk/ & https://www.harihareswara.net/posts/2022/how-i-thought-about-an-in-person-conference-choice/ . I did find that the CO2 levels in some indoor spaces were ~500-600ppm, near outdoors levels, and thus was ok with lowering my mask to sip something indoors, which I did ~15-20 times.

Post-conference notes from my experience at PyCon 2023. I think I am squeaking under the wire for these to still be relevant…
On one hand, Twitter’s downfall was unequivocally demonstrated at #PyConUS where I’ve exchanged numbers with more people than at a speed dating party (conferences used to RUN on Twitter).
OTOH I’m seeing an immense outflux from Mastodon towards BlueSky because people don’t want to deal with middle-aged pedants (yes, I’m probably both) & the results of their loud influence anymore.
It’s hard to predict the future, but this feels like a fumble of an one-in-a-lifetime chance for the Fediverse. 😐
Thanks to #pyconus masking, I didn't even get the usual conference crud. It's beyond surprising that the CDC didn't mask
Lots of nice and interesting discussions happening on the « PyHAT » stack repos after #PyConUS. 1 / 2
Version 7.2.4, with four fixes from the #PyConUS sprints!
Thanks to @marcgibbons @kevinbrownsilva @grohe43 and Ricardo Newbery.
Final post-#PyConUS, pre-travel COVID test. Still negative! Thank you to everyone for vaccinating and following the mask guidelines we had in place, it made me a _lot_ less anxious!
(Obviously will test after travel as well, but at that point it'll be more likely picked up at the airport...)
I finally had time to sit down and look at https://huggingface.co/spaces/society-ethics/about after @meg's #PyConUs talk - what an amazing resource! Papers, spaces and news about a whole range of ethical AI topics all in one spot!
Rambling disjointed thoughts about #PyConUs on the flight home:
This past weekend at PyCon US I received this - sort of the Python community lifetime achievement award.
The projects that lead to this award were never solo efforts, they were all team efforts, so for me the significance of this award is as a reminder of the things we built together more than as a personal thing.
(Some have already made fun of me for saying that ("oh, how Hollywood of you"), but it's the truth and I refuse to let those clowns bring me down. 😝)
Okay so I didn't actually get around to giving my lightning talk at #pyconus, so instead, I wrote up the long-form version on my site as a blog post! Enjoy this dive into zipapps, why they're cool, and why you should totally take a look at this tool called `shiv` from LinkedIn! https://itsthejoker.github.io/shiv-the-tool-you-didnt-know-you-wanted/ #python #pycon #deployment
