Apr 7 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

NOTE: The room opens at 6pm, but the speaker does not begin until 7pm, with the hour between for socializing.

Speaker: Adam Howard

Topic: Python Development and Deployment Using Virtual Environments

For software developers, encapsulation, portability and proper version controlling are vital to ensuring that their products work as expected and don’t cause trouble with the other applications they have to work with. In Python, managing software packages and interpreter versions can be a hassle, especially on systems that require multiple versions of the interpreter to run all of their applications. This talk explains the dynamic duo of Virtual Environment and Pip, and how they attempt to alleviate that burden for Python developers and users alike.
