Talk Python to Me is a weekly podcast hosted by developer and entrepreneur Michael Kennedy. We dive deep into the popular packages and software developers, data scientists, and incredible hobbyists doing amazing things with Python. If you're new to Python, you'll quickly learn the ins and outs of the community by hearing from the leaders. And if you've been Pythoning for years, you'll learn about your favorite packages and the hot new ones coming out of open source.
Talking to Notebooks with Jupyter AI
We all know that LLMs and generative AI has been working its way into many products. It's Jupyter's turn to get a really awesome integration. We have David Qiu here to tell us about Jupyter AI. Jupyter AI provides a user- friendly and powerful way to apply generative AI to your notebooks. It lets you choose from many different LLM providers and models to get just the help you're looking for. And it does way more than just a chat pane in the UI. Listen to find out.
Pixi, A Fast Package Manager
On this episode we have Wolf Vollprecht and Ruben Arts from the pixi project here to talk about pixi, a high performance package manager for Python and other languages that actually manages Python itself too. They have a lot of interesting ideas on where Python packaging should go and are putting their time and effort behind them. Will pixi become your next package manager? Listen in to find out.
Celebrating JupyterLab 4 and Jupyter 7 Releases
Jupyter Notebooks and Jupyter Lab have to be one of the most important parts of Python when it comes to bring new users to the Python ecosystem and certainly for the day to day work of data scientists and general scientists who have made some of the biggest discoveries of recent times. And that platform has recently gotten a major upgrade with JupyterLab 4 released and Jupyter Notebook being significantly reworked to be based on the changes from JupyterLab as well. We have an excellent panel of guests, Sylvain Corlay, Frederic Collonval, Jeremy Tuloup, and Afshin Darian here to tell us what's new in these and other parts of the Jupyter ecosystem.
HTMX for Django Developers (And All of Us)
An Unbiased Evaluation of Environment and Packaging Tools
How well do you know your Python packaging tools? These are things like pip which install your project's dependencies and their dependencies and so on. In this mix, we have more modern tools such as Poetry, Flit, Hatch and others. And even tools outside of Python itself which may attempt to manage Python itself in addition to the libraries. To make sense of all of this, we welcome back Anna-Lena Popkes for an unbiased evaluation of environment and packaging tools.
Do you worry about your developer / data science supply chain safety? All the packages for the Python ecosystem are much of what makes Python awesome. But the are also a bit of an open door to your code and machine. Luckily the PSF is taking this seriously and hired Mike Fiedler as the full time PyPI Safety & Security Engineer (not to be confused with the Security Developer in Residence staffed by Seth Michael Larson). Mike is here to give us the state of the PyPI security and plans for the future.
