I attended PyCon 2018 in Cleveland, for the talks portion May 11 -- May 13. I had a good time, and I managed to put a face to the name of several of the more famous python developers.
All of the keynotes were good, but Saturday morning's keynotes were amazing:
- Ying Li gave a talk on security (and parenting)
- Qumisha Goss gave an amazing talk on teaching programming and python to children at the Detroit Public Library
Notable talks I attended include:
- Don't Look Back in Anger: Wildman Whitehouse and the Great Failure of 1858 - Lilly Ryan
- You're an expert. Here's how to teach like one. - Shannon Turner
- Beyond Unit Tests: Taking Your Testing to the Next Level - Hillel Wayne
- How We Do Identity Wrong - Amber Brown ("HawkOwl")
- Systemd: why you should care as a Python developer - Alvaro Leiva Geisse
- How to Write Deployment-friendly Applications - Hynek Schlawack
- Python Data Sonification for Science and Discovery - Erin Braswell
- All in the Timing: How side channel attacks work - Asheesh Laroia and Phillip James
Thanks to the organizers, the Python Software Foundation, and the city of Cleveland.
