Part three of six in our annual PyCon Must-See Series, a weekly highlight of talks our staff especially loved at PyCon. With so many fantastic talks, it’s hard to know where to start, so here’s our short list.
While at PyCon 2016, I really enjoyed Doug Hellmann’s talk, “How I built a power debugger out of the standard library and things I found on the internet” (video below). It's listed as a novice talk but anyone can learn from this talk. Doug talked about the process of creating this project more than the project itself. He talked about his original idea, his motivations, and how he worked in pieces towards his goal. His approach and attitude were refreshing, including talking about places that he struggled and now how long the process took. A beautiful glimpse into the mind of a very smart, creative, and humble developer.
