There are simple, yet crucial, reminders that can differentiate an expert developer from a hobbyist. In this talk and live demo, developers will learn:

  • the importance of abiding by the Zen of Python;
  • where (and how) to install Python on your machine;
  • three rules to follow when installing Python;
  • proper version management with pyenv;
  • which Python add-ons (e.g.: virtualenv, pipx, piptools, Docker) can be used to make environments both repeatable and simple.
