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.
Visualizing CPython Release Process
Every year Python has a new major release. This year it's Python 3.12 and it'll come out on October 2, 2023. That's 4 days from when this episode was published. There is quite process involved to test, build, and ship Python across many platforms and channels. We have Seth Michael Larson here to give us a detailed rundown on what exactly is involved in releasing CPython.
Delightful Machine Learning Apps with Gradio
So, you've got this amazing machine learning model you created. And you want to share it and let your colleagues and users experiment with it on the web. How do you get started? Learning Flask or Django? Great frameworks, but you might consider Gradio which is a rapid development UI framework for ML models. On this episode, we have Freddy Boulton, to introduce us all to Gradio.
Taming Flaky Tests
We write tests to show us when there are problems with our code. But what if there are intermittent problems with the tests themselves? That can be big hassle. In this episode, we have Gregory Kapfhammer and Owain Parry on the show to share their research and advice for taming flaky tests.
Django Trends in 2023
Have you heard of Django? It's this little web framework that, well, kicked off much of Python's significance in the web space back in 2005. And that makes Django officially an adult. That's right, Django is now 18. And Django continues to lead the way on how community should be done for individual projects such as web frameworks. We have Carlton Gibson and Will Vincent back on the show this episode to discuss a bit of the Django history, Django trends in 2023, a little HTMX + Django, and lots more.
10 Tips and Ideas for the Beginner to Expert Python Journey
Getting started in Python is pretty easy. There's even a t-shirt that jokes about it: I learned Python, it was a good weekend. But to go from know how to create variables and writing loops, to building amazing things like FastAPI or Instagram, well there is this little gap between those two things. On this episode we welcome Eric Matthes to the show. He has thought a lot about teaching Python and comes to share his 10 tips for going from Python beginner to expert.
What's New in PyScript [August 2023]
One of the most exciting initiatives in the Python space these days is pyscript which enables Python running natively in your browser. With consistent support from the folks at Anaconda, this project has been making solid strides since its initial release. On this episode we catch up with Fabio Pliger and Nicholas Tollervey to see where they are with the pyscript project.
No longer relevant
This was THE podcast to listen to… years ago. Now this has become very formulaic, too many boring interviews with a supposedly important personality, too much talk about web/html/site related environments.
This and Python bites I no longer listen to.
I rather would like a talk whereby the speakers fumble and stumble through using some largely unknown library or environment.
I’m still learning how to code pithon.
