Marc-André Lemburg, Python Core Developer and Senior Software Architect, was invited to give a keynote and a technical talk at the first PyWaw Summit 2015 in Warsaw, Poland.
The event was a big success, thanks to great organization of the
PyWaw team, and we can only recommend anyone looking for two very
intense days of talks to consider attending next year's summit.
We have now turned the talks into a video presentations for easy viewing and also released the presentation slides.
In this keynote, I take the audience on a tour through the
development of the Python community. Starting 20 years ago with how I entered Python, looking at
important milestones, showing current developments and giving an outlook
of where we might be heading in the next few years.
Hope you'll enjoy the ride.
-- Marc-André Lemburg
Python is often referred to as a scripting language. While Python is
an ideal platform for scripting, integration or plugin tasks, it does in
fact cover all the concepts needed for truly large-scale object
oriented application development. However, complex applications bring new challenges.
The talk draws on my experience with large-scale application design using Python as central implementation language and provides a cookbook approach to many of the problems you face when designing and organizing complex application frameworks.
The approach has been used in many real-life projects, ranging from web application servers in varying fields of application to complete finance trading systems. Python has always proven to be a truly good choice with an outstanding time-to-market advantage over other implementation languages such as Java or C++. It allows small software development companies to successfully compete against multi-million dollar ventures.
