On monday morning there was I long line before the conference venue and I only arrived at 09:30, but I had no trouble to get in on time. Florian Bruhin greeted me from the waiting line, but he confused me with someone else. I should have used the opportunity and ask him about recording an podcast episode about pytest, but I was too perplexed.
Some time ago I tried to join the Python Software Verband e.V, but didn't succeed. Filling out the form locally should work now :).
The first session I attended was Building an ORM from scratch by Patrick Schemitz and Jonathan Oberländer which was great. I had trouble following through because it was so fast paced, but I like to be challanged. Here's the code used in the presentation.
After lunch I listened to the keynote of the first day: Beyond the basics: Contributor experience, diversity and culture in open source projects, which was held online by Melissa Weber Mendonça from brasil. This is a really difficult topic, but there's also a lot of room for improvement.
The talk Python 3.10: Welcome to pattern matching by Laysa Uchoa was informative as well as funny.
Seeing the needle AND the haystack: single-datapoint selection for billion-point datasets was also interesting. Never thought about that it might be hard to visualize a dataset that has many more datapoints than the screen has pixels, but it's kind of obvious to me now :)The last slot I attended on the first day was the lightning talks. There was a lot of interesting stuff, just to hightlight some:
- Typed Settings - Safe and flexible settings with types | it uses attrs / cattrs and it's main purpose is to aggregate settings from different sources like password managers etc
- Folium - Python data, leaflet.js maps
