We dive deep into the popular packages and software developers, data scientists, and incredible hobbyists doing amazing things with Python. If you're new to Python, you'll quickly learn the ins and outs of the community by hearing from the leaders. And if you've been Pythoning for years, you'll learn about your favorite packages and the hot new ones coming out of open source.

At some point, you've probably migrated an app from one framework or major runtime version to another. For example, Django to Flask, Python 2 to Python 3, or even Angular to Vue.js. This can be a big challenge. If you had 100s of active devs and millions of lines of code, it's a huge challenge. We have Ben Bariteau from Yelp here to recount their story moving 3.8M lines of code from Python 2 to Python 3. But this is not just a 2-to-3 story. It has many lessons on how to migrate code in many situations. There are plenty of gems to take from his experience.
