Brandon Rhodes, PSF member, author of Foundations of Python Network Programming Second Edition and the pyephem scientific-grade astronomy module, and a frequent favorite presenter at Python conferences worldwide, will present "The Clean Architecture in Python." Brandon describes the talk as, "Python programmers already use many design patterns in their work. Each pattern distills the wisdom the community has learned over the years, often at great expense, and makes it available to younger programmers. But even design-conscious programmers often find their applications growing more difficult to test and expand. In this talk, we will learn about how the recently propounded 'Clean Architecture' applies to Python applications, and how this high-level design pattern fits particularly well with the features of the Python language and addresses questions that experienced programmers have been asking at the last few PyCons.
