Welcome to the first episode of the podcast! These, my friends, are the Show Notes.
Introduction to Your Hosts
PyCon 2010 Reflections
- Mike and Chris were impressed by the community and the group focus
- Ruby sucks. Mike said it. Bring it, kids.
- Titus likes Distribute and Pip. Who knows why?
- What can we learn from PyCon for regional conferences like PyOhio?
- Dave’s done a lot of thinking about testing
- He finds that nothing lets him test the way he wants.
- He uses nose, mock, and dingus
- Mote might be good for BDD, but Dave finds it lacking.
- Dave hates documentation. Tests could be like documentation, and would be more accurate over time.
- Mote parses the output more like a narrative, almost like a spec, instead of …..F….
- We work with a large system, and rest assured, code is not documentation. Tests could be.
- Oh..we ramble about this for a while. PyCon? What’s PyCon? Oh…right…the Testing BOF.
- There was a Testing Goat. Terry Peppers is somehow responsible for it. Mike Pirnat needed one. Gary Bernhardt was the goat. We want pictures. ‘Nuff said?
- Look into Mike’s .vimrc. Behold the wonder.
- Right. PyCon. Remember Pycon? David Beazley’s talk on the GIL was dead sexy.
- The Brandon Rhodes’ discussion of the Dictionary Object. Awesome.
- Chris thought Titus’s talk on Continuous Integration frameworks was great.
- Oh look. Back to testing. We like talking about testing. Look for a show or two on testing. Wait! Don’t leave!
- Chris was impressed with the diversity of the community and how friendly people were.
- And about the vendors. What did we think about the vendors? We like Swag. And sometimes we buy books. And hats.
- “I use vim, so I don’t really need an IDE.” Flame. Discuss.
- We generally have a good opinion of companies using open source and who participate in the community.
- We enjoyed hacking together, especially on Mike’s snakeplan.
- We need DCVS achievements. Like games. But better.
- Catherine Devlin’s cmd2 was sweet.
- You might be eaten by a grue.
- Python is used by the military to create simulations. Thanks, Eric Silverman!
- Atlanta, however, was…meh. We’d prefer Cleveland. We’re not biased. Nope. And it’s not Detroit, right?
