My story with Python and Open Source

June 30, 2018, 9:45 a.m. - 10:25 a.m.

This is the story of how I went from lonely, introvert, C# developer to open-source Python author and maintainer, speaker, trainer, consultant and all-around community junkie. With some luck, in the process you will also hear a few hints on how to become a good open source contributor and have a chance to ponder on the pros and cons (yes, there are cons too) of going full monty with open source.
